In order to reduce the risk of handling cash payments, our preferred method of payment is for participants to use mobile-to-mobile technology through Paym or Pingit.

Payment can also be made by direct bank transfer to our community account. Cash payments for tournament entry fees will only be accepted when they are made at the preceding tournament.

WEBSF Financial Procedures

Something to consider before making a payment

To make it easier for us to process and confirm your payments throughout the season, we ask that you fill in a short payment summary form alongside any online payments you make.

We will use the following information in cross-referencing your payment:

  • your name
  • your email address
  • what you are paying for (have paid for)
  • the name(s) of the person(s) you’re paying for (if applicable).

We don’t mind if you choose to fill in the payment summary form before or after making a payment.

Please note that submitting a payment summary form does not register as entry for a tournament – tournament entry can only be confirmed once pre-payment has been received and processed.

Making a payment

Paying for tournament entry fees, membership or merchandise has never been easier or more secure. You can now pay in a couple of clicks using mobile-to-mobile technology through either Paym or Pingit.

Mobile banking apps (Paym)

Paym allows you to make mobile-to-mobile payments by registering your mobile number with your bank and logging onto to own mobile banking app.

Most major banks offer Paym as a payment method. Visit the Paym website to check whether your bank is one of the banks or building societies that are signed up.

To pay via Paym, simply follow the steps below:

  • Go to your mobile banking app and log in.
  • Enter ‘07773015618’ in the mobile payment section of your banking app. This mobile number should bring up ‘West of England Billiards & Snooker Foundation’ as the registered payee.
  • Enter the payment amount.
  • Enter a payment reference (for example, ‘WEBSF Billiards’, ‘WoE Snooker’, etc.).
  • There is no need to enter your name or the name of the person you are paying on behalf of (this information should be provided in the payment summary form you submit alongside your payment).
  • Send the payment.

Pingit

You can also pay using Pingit by downloading the Pingit App and registering your bank details.

To pay via Pingit, simply follow the steps below:

  • Go to the Pingit App on your mobile and log in.
  • Go to the ‘send a payment’ section of the app.
  • In the search field, enter ‘West of England Billiards & Snooker Foundation’ or click on the ‘Scan QR code’ and scan the code on this webpage.
  • Enter the amount.
  • Enter a payment reference (for example, ‘WEBSF Billiards’, ‘WoE Snooker’, etc.).
  • There is no need to enter your name or the name of the person you are paying on behalf of (this information should be provided in the payment summary form you submit alongside your payment).
  • Send the payment.

Please remember that all tournament entry fees must be paid in advance of the event in order to secure your place in the draw and are non-refundable, unless there are extenuating circumstances.

Please use the following reference codes when you are prompted to apply a reference to your payment (this makes it easier for us to process and confirm your payment).
