The International Feng Shui Guild Payment Policy and procedures create a successful and safe experience for our members and advertisers. We utilize payment methods that are safe and easy to use with convenient payment options, and offer the strongest protections available.
Membership payments are active: FROM either the date paid or the end of the current membership term whichever is later THROUGH the membership payment term, whether annual or quarter. All membership benefits lapse at the end of the current paid membership term, and only begin again upon payment. Click here to learn more about membership in the IFSG.
Annual Payment Terms: Membership is active for one year (12 months).
Quarterly Payment Terms: Accepted for Red Ribbon Professional and Professional members only at this time, membership is active for one quarter (3 months). Quarterly payments are not down-payments for the annual payment, but are separate and distinct membership terms. Accepted through the PayPal invoicing process. At any time, should member choose to move to annual payments, they may contact the office or login to member account to pay for annual membership.
Membership Lapse Notifications
Members are notified of impending lapse date beginning approximately 45 days prior. Notifications continue lapse date and for an additional 30 days after lapse date if needed. Members who lapse beyond 60 days past their lapse date will need to pay a re-instatement fee of $25 in addition to annual dues to re-instate their membership.
Notifications are sent via email to the email address in our contact database (which may be different than the email address listed on personal or school public directory listing). It is the member’s responsibility to make sure contact records are updated and maintained accurately.
Payments for advertising or other promotional ads may be made using any of the below methods of payment as well as PayPal invoicing. Ads must be approved by the IFSG prior to placement.

All payments must be in US dollars and may be made either through electronic/online means or by check.
Online Payment Processing
Online payment processing is secure and protected through PayPal. We accept VISA, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express through PayPal or through phone orders. Payments made via e-check through PayPal are not active until processing is complete and payment is cleared. Payee does not need a PayPal account to make online payments.
Personal or Business Checks
Personal or business checks are accepted for full amount due. Return check or insufficient fund fees will be charged back to the member or advertiser through the reduction of services provided. For example, fees related to membership payments will reduce the membership term accordingly.
