Bank transfer – Payment Reference Code

In order to identify your fee payment electronically after receipt on the EWRS account you need to copy the "Payment Reference Code” into your first field of Remittance Information of your bank transfer order sheet.
This code will be shown during your online bank payment procedure. You therefore need to proceed through the EWRS online payment procedure. 
This is necessary because of two reasons:
a. the selected bank payment option needs to be registered in the online database for fee payment administration, related to the actual Invoice of concern. 
b. you need to inform your bank account manager to copy the Payment Reference Code in the first description field of your bank transfer order sheet (without further text in that first description field). 

Online bank transfer order procedure

  1. During the online payment procedure you need to select the option “I would like to pay with a bank transfer”. 
  2. Upon the selection of that procedure the bank account information is shown as well as the “Payment reference” code. 
  3. Use the shown option to print the bank account information and the “Payment reference” code. This code is the only information the Treasurer needs/wants to identify your payment electronically.
  4. Insert only the “Payment reference” code in the “"First Description field” of your transfer order sheet.
  5. The EWRS Fee bank account information is given in your online Invoice PDF.
  6. In case you need to pay with an international bank transfer it must be done through an “Our Cost” or “Share” order. Be aware that the EWRS prefers payment with a credit card. The online credit card payment takes the least administrative time use and is most cost effective for the Society.
  7. After payment with a bank transfer, send an e-mail to the membership officer with attachment of a copy of the relevant "Statement of Account", to enable identification of your transaction after receipt at the EWRS-BureauPost fee account.
