Update -14:46 - 7th January: Our online Membership Process is now back online after suffering more issues with PayPal.
Our online membership application had been shut down for the time being as PayPal was having an issue verifying that we are a legitimate registered company. I had contacted them many times since this issue first arose over a month ago and even though I was ensured that we had now met all government requirements, they still restricted our account.
After contacting them by phone this morning they apologised for the mistake but said it could still be some time before their verification team un-restricts our account due to a Christmas backlog. To their credit after just one hour after the phone call we were back online.
We apologise for any inconvenience this has caused as we worked with PayPal to get the online membership system back up and running as soon as possible.
