As of the beginning of 2022, TUG has switched to using PayPal for payment processing by default. You may notice that our forms (membership, donations, etc.) have been simplified, and after submitting you are redirected to PayPal to collect payment and contact information.
If you prefer not to use PayPal, or it is not working for you, you can use our alternate membership form to join or renew.
In the US and some other countries, a PayPal account is not required, as PayPal provides an option there to “Pay with Credit or Debit” card (at the bottom of the page after redirection), or (in yet other countries) similarly via bank account. An account is required in most European countries, unfortunately.
Just so you know, we did not make this change lightly. There are several reasons for the switch:
Thanks to all our members, donors, and contributors of all kinds. We hope this change will make payments to TUG simpler and easier. If you have any questions, please contact the TUG office.
