Offline payment

Transfering small amounts of money from one country to another is quite expensive. That is one of the main reasons why I strongly recommend to use PayPal whenever possible.

Premium membership. It is not possible to get a Premium membership by offline payment, because Premium membership implies payment by standing order. (But please read about Premium mode).

German players should read our German payment page.

Prices

The price for Standard membership is 2 Euro per month plus 2 Euro per payment.

The column Premium shows for how many months you will be in Premium mode.


Payment methods

The charges for money transfers and postal rates greatly differ for different countries. Therefore, I cannot tell which payment method is best for you. Please check how much each of the offered payment methods costs in your country.

Method 1: Cash in a letter

This method may appear to be risky, but we have made very good experiences: not a single money letter got lost until now. Therefore, it is probably the best option (leaving PayPal aside). Please send the money in Euro currency, if possible.

Important hint. Any bank charges for currency conversion are subtracted from your membership fee. Wrap the cash notes into newspaper before putting them into the letter. Don't send coins - not even Euro coins.

Standard membership
Duration Premium Price
4 months 0 months 10 EUR
9 months 3 months 20 EUR
14 months 8 months 30 EUR
19 months 13 months 40 EUR
24 months 18 months 50 EUR

Please send the membership fee to the following address:

Thomas Stahl
PlayChess
Im Niederried 31
63486 Bruchkoebel
Germany

Important: Please supply your player name (with correct case) on a piece of paper inside the letter. Then send an email notification to PlayChess.

After receiving your email notification (containing your player name and the amount of money), I will normally activate your membership within 1-2 days. The mail should contain your player name (with correct case), the money amount and the duration of the membership. This can speed up the activation of your membership.

Hint: Please note that your membership will be activated immediately after reception of your email - before the money arrives. This way, you don't have any risk.

Method 2: Bank transfer

International bank transfers are quite expensive - even within Europe. It is strongly recommended that you ask your bank how much the transfer would cost - before actually sending the membership fee.

Two points are important: Tell the bank that you will pay all the costs for the transfer. If you don't tell them, I will have to reduce the membership period according to the amount my bank charges. Send the money in Euro currency.

Any bank charges that PlayChess must pay for accepting an international transfer will be subtracted from your membership fee.
