Membership fees payment methods

Paying for your membership is quick and easy. You can pay by Direct Debit, online, by post, by phone and by special arrangement in some countries.

How to pay

You can pay your IET membership subscription fees in a number of different ways:

By Direct Debit

Sign up to Direct Debit online via My IET (login required).

If you have not previously registered a My IET account, it is quick and easy to set up. Click on the "register" button that appears at the top of each IET website page and follow the on-screen instructions.

Direct Debit is the IET's preferred method of payment as it helps keep our costs to a minimum and therefore ensures that your membership fees are put to best use.
