Its the online System that has baffled some of us, but we have been promised that once we get our head round it then it's plain sailing and the easy way to pay for things for Guides.

So here are some hints and tips to help us all!

  • If you follow the links sent when you sign up you will have access to our page where you can view our program, sign up for events and see what payments you have signed up for
  • if your payment fails-this is because a spend limit has been set at some point when it was set up, so if you contact 1stmarpleguides@gmail.com, cancel your direct debit and then re-set up your payment details. This shouldn't happen from this point forward!
  • The systems suggests you set up an account but If you have more than one child on the system it is essential to do this so you can toggle between each child. If you don't the system gets "stuck" on the last child you did anything for until a new link is sent for a different child.

Getting to know you!!
