The question has been occasionally raised as to whether it would be possible to pay the Club membership fee by credit card. The OHOC executive decided against having payment of membership fees by credit card at its June 2009 board meeting because

  • the Club would need to get a credit profile
  • a machine would be needed
  • it would cost the Club $10 to $20 per month
  • the Club would need to use Paypal along with the credit card, and using Paypal doesn't make sense because
    • along with OHOC needing to obtain a Paypal account, each of our would-be members would also have to do this
    • the Club would still need a signature for insurance purposes, so there is no gain by using Paypal
