Expat Club wants registering for our events and trips to be as easy as possible. Therefore we offer several forms of payments through the leading payment gateway service MultiSafepay: SOFORT Banking, Giropay, iDeal, Mister Cash / Bancontact, MasterCard and Visa. We also offer PayPal. Please note that payment charge will be added to the final amount depending on your choice of payment, except for Sofort Banking.
With SOFORT Banking you can pay fast and secure with virtually all Belgian banks, including ING, KBC, BNP Paribas Fortis, AXA Bank, Beobank, Belfius and bpost bank. You don’t need to register for an account. Just have your usual online banking login data ready (+ eventually an online banking device) as if you are paying through your bank’s website. You can also pay through your account of major banks in 10 other European countries (handy for short-term expats). This system is TüV-certified and market-leader in Germany for online payments. Click here for more information. Using the Sofort system is free of charge.
Ever since 1989, Bancontact / Mr Cash has provided smooth and secure payment processing and today it is the Belgian market leader in electronic payment services. The Expat Club website uses the services of Multisafepay to enable payments with Bancontact. Using your bank card through Bancontact costs €0,25 + 1% per transaction.
You can use your MasterCard and Visa Card. We currently do not offer American Express, Diners or Discover. The payment process is simple and fast, just what an online payment should be. Using your credit card through Stripe payments costs €0,25 + 2,5% per transaction.
With PayPal you can make safe and secure transactions through your PayPal account, your Maestro card, or your preferred credit card (Mastercard, Visa Card, American Express or Discover). Creating an account is very easy. Just go to the PayPal checkout page and choose the bottom right option. Submit your personal details and your card info, create a password and you’re done! Using your PayPal account or your credit card through the PayPal system costs €0,30 + 3,4% per transaction.
As of November 2015 we stopped accepting regular online bank transfers. This can only be done in exceptional cases and by selected members. The following only applies in those two instances. For selected members, please go to the checkout page, select the bank transfer payment option and finish your booking. After you receive the confirmation you can transfer the indicated amount to our bank account with the Order ID as your reference. The bank details are shown on the screen and in the confirmation email. For bookings within 3 working days of the event you should send us a printscreen of the final confirmation page in your online bank environment. Please note that the SOFORT Banking system works virtually the same as your own online bank environment. In case you need it, this is our bank account:

BE 12 3631 1368 9292 (ING Belgium)
BIC (if required): BBRUBEBB

Expat Club does generally not accept cash payments for daytrips, but we do for our open local events, such as lectures and workshops.
