Payment Methods and Fees Categories

We accept the following methods of payment:

  • Credit Card - Payments are accepted from Visa, Mastercard, and Amex accounts only.
  • Cheque - Cheques should be made payable to the Canadian Society of Hospital Pharmacists. Cheques may be post-dated to July 1 of each year.
  • Split Payment Plan - (CHEQUE ONLY + $20 ADMINISTRATION FEE) - Member and Supporter dues (excluding Student Supporter and Member-In-Training fees) must be paid in two equal installments, the first payable upon joining/renewing and the second provided as a post-dated cheque, dated  on/before November 1 of each year. No other method of payment will be accepted for split payment. A separate receipt will be issued after each payment is processed. A $20 administration fee applies, which should be divided equally between the two cheques. To pay in two installments, please return the printable membership or supporter form by mail with your two cheques.
