If you prefer to use the time and postage to
send a paper check ---
OPTION # 2. Paper check choice --- pay $44 (for two year subscription) by a
paper check mailed to us. Send a check for $44, for your two year
membership, by post office mail to Joseph Bucklin Society, 8063 S. Michele
Lane, Tempe, AZ 85284.
Why do we charge more for paper than an electronic payment and renewal?
The answer is it does cost us more time and money to
process a check than receive a payment electronically, then set up a
reminder and mail a paper reminder invoice out at the end of a year. That
is why we do charge more for paper check payments.
Why we do
not accept checks for less than a two year membership?
The answer is we have to have at least two years membership to make it
"more than a break even" situation. (It costs us more than $18 in secretarial time,
paper, postage, et cetera to get someone on the rolls as a member, get
their data into the database of Bucklins, send them
email newsletters, and issue their certificate. So, at the end of
one year the new member is an expense (We've lost money by having the new
member if they only stay a year). If the new member sends us questions or
more data than simply their parents and grandparents' information, it
costs us even more secretarial time, so we are losing even more to have
the new member. But the second year we gain a little, and the end of two years, the member's
dues for both years have paid for a total of one day operation of the websites
(or one hour of a secretary
for data input.)
P.S. Remember, if you subscribe to pay by credit card on our annual payment plan
OPTION # 1 ABOVE) it saves us
renewal reminder expense and time, and saves you money --- only $18 for an annual membership
even if you later cancel future membership.
