Purchasing on webmhcc.org (including Paypal)Author: frank kelly. 3492 Reads
On our website we presently allow you to purchase MHCC memberships and renewals and, in season, to register and pay for our century ride. Just as background you should know that we are very concerned for the security and integrity of any financial transaction you make here. That is why none of your financial information, especially no credit card information ever passes through our web site. When you make a financial transaction, your basic information (name, address etc.) is sent to Paypal and you are transferred to their site. They have the means and experience to encrypt all your financial information as it is being processed. When you are done with Paypal, they send back to us some summary information about the transaction minus any credit card numbers or anything else that could be used in an identity theft type of attack.
Also, as background, in developing our payment strategy we have kept in place a full range of payment options. If you are computer adverse you can obtain a pre-printed form, fill it out, include a check and mail it. If you prefer, you can print a PDF version of the form from our web site, fill it out with pen and ink, include a check and mail it. For the century, you can complete the registration form online but skip online payment and just send a check to the registration coordinator. Or you can register and pay entirely through Paypal. We’ve got you covered.
We encourage online payment and registration because it saves our volunteers a lot of time and effort. We believe it saves you time and effort too. And we believe it is at least as secure as mailing a paper check ...but you can make your own judgment on that.
We welcome your feedback on this process ... as with all aspects of the web site. If you happen to be a PHP/MYSQL programmer and have some time on your hands please volunteer ... there is plenty yet to do.
