PAYMENTS POLICY

Girl Scouts (Singapore) is a non-profit organization registered in Singapore (ROS UEN: T04SS0267A) which collects payments for various events, membership dues, donations and other services it provides. As proper collection and accounting of funds is required for ongoing operations and compliance with Singapore regulations, we have published this Payments Policy for our members and other persons making payments to the organization.

 

Payment Types Accepted

Girl Scouts (Singapore) will only accept payments made in Singapore Dollars (SGD) via one the following methods. No foreign currencies are accepted.

  • PayPal

  • Check

  • Bank Transfer

  • Cash

  • Financial Aid

 

PayPal Payments

This is the preferred payment method and Girl Scouts (Singapore) makes every effort to provide automatic links to PayPal for payment of fees for activities that require ‘online registration’ (e.g. membership fees, event fees). All payments must be made in Singapore Dollars (SGD) and all related fees (i.e. bank charges, foreign currency exchange fees, etc.) are the responsibility of the payee.

 

Girl Scouts (Singapore) can also accept direct PayPal payments under the following account: webmaster@singaporeusagirlscouts.org.

 

You can also send ‘quick payments’ via PayPal by typing the following URL into your browser, paypal.me/usagsosingapore/<##>, and simply replace the <##> with the amount you want to send in SGD. For example, paypal.me/usagsosingapore/110, will send a $110 SGD payment directly to Girl Scouts (Singapore).

 

Check Payments

Check payments must be made using a properly completed Singapore bank check drawn on a Singapore bank. Check payments must be in the correct amount and postmarked or hand-delivered to the Treasurer before the due date, otherwise the payment shall be considered late. Contact the Treasurer for delivery address and details.

Singapore banks are very particular about processing checks. All checks must be filled very neatly and in a specific manner, or they will not be honored by the bank. Please note the instructions below for making payments to "Girl Scouts (Singapore)" by check. On the Notes area on the reverse side, please write: your daughter's name & Troop number, and your contact number.

 

Bank Transfer Payments

For payments by bank transfer, use the following bank information. Payees should include payment identification information in the bank transfer message field (i.e. Registration ID, last name, etc.) All payments must be made in Singapore Dollars (SGD) and all related fees (i.e. bank charges, foreign currency exchange fees, etc.) are the responsibility of the payee. Girl Scouts (Singapore) cannot be held responsible for incorrect/invalid bank transfers or bank charges/fees, so please be sure you check all information carefully before submitting a transfer request to your bank. Bank transfers that arrive on deposit in our account after the due date shall be considered late.
