All new TCC members must submit an application form (click here for instructions) and pay the $100 initiation fee plus their first yearly dues. To make your payment online, select the appropriate initiation fee and annual dues amount, then click the yellow checkout button in the shopping cart to complete your payment. Please note that while all transactions are processed via PayPal, a PayPal account is not required to pay your TCC dues and initiation fee. To make your payment without a PayPal login, select the gray “Pay With Debit or Credit Card” option on the first page of the checkout process, then enter your credit card account details as instructed. All amounts are in U.S. currency.

If you have questions or concerns that are not answered below, please e-mail the TCC at firstname.lastname@example.org before completing your payment.
I don’t have a PayPal account. Can I still pay my dues and initiation fee online?
Yes. A PayPal account is not required. When you click the yellow checkout button in the shopping cart, you will be directed to a page at PayPal.com where you can click the gray “Pay With Debit or Credit Card” button to complete your payment without logging in as a PayPal member.
What should I do if I added incorrect items to the shopping cart?
Click the red trash bin icon next to any item to remove it from the cart.
Is this the only way to pay my TCC dues and initiation fee?
No. You may send us a check, or provide your credit card information directly to the TCC.
Is there an additional fee or service charge if I pay my dues and initiation fee online?
TCC dues and initiation fee amounts are the same no matter how you choose to pay. However, for payments from accounts not denominated in U.S. dollars, PayPal and/or the financial institution that issued your debit or credit card may assess a foreign exchange transaction fee.
Why is my payment going through PayPal?
Accepting online payments requires a credit or debit card processing service to verify the transaction and implement the transfer of funds between financial institutions. The TCC board has selected PayPal as our online payment processor because it is a leading international provider of online payment services, and we believe it is familiar to many of our members. Dues payments submitted via PayPal are transferred directly to the TCC bank account and are tracked by our normal accounting procedures.
Will the TCC keep my credit or debit card information on file?
No. All Web-based dues and initiation fee payments are processed via PayPal, and the TCC will never have access to your credit or debit card account information.
Is your payment system safe and secure?
Opting to use any online payment platform is a personal choice. If you are concerned about the security of the PayPal online payment service, we encourage you to use an alternate method to pay your TCC dues. Contact the TCC at email@example.com for details.
