Fee Payment
Including PAYM

How to make your fee payment? Having hitherto been very old-fashioned, ie payment only in cash or by cheque, Jonathan has now leaped so far ahead that probably nobody will be able to pay him at all. (Possibly a relief as he's just put up his fees!)

So how to pay him:

  • Cash (there's often a cash machine nearby)
  • Cheque (tried and tested for (?)200 years)
  • Bank transfer - ask for details of his bank account
  • Online, using your debit, credit or Paypal
  • Using Paypal and Jonathan's mobile telephone number
  • With your debit or credit card. NB, there is an extra charge of 4% for this, being the charge made to us by the company we use for both debit and credit card transactions through them.
  • PAYM (pronounced 'Pay Em') via your smartphone. Once you have downloaded an app from your bank, you can pay Jonathan by putting in his mobile (cellphone) number and the amount. Your fee payment is then transferred directly to him. Note: at present this only works with personal accounts handled by the participating banks listed below.

Banks Participating in PAYM

If you have a personal account with one of the following, you should be able to download their 'app' to your smartphone. (I understand that it has to be a smartphone.)

  • Bank of Scotland
  • Barclays 
  • Cumberland Building Society
  • Dankse Bank
  • First Direct
  • Halifax
  • HSBC
  • Isle of Man Bank
  • Lloyds Bank
  • Nationwide Building Society
  • NatWest bank
  • Royal Bank of Scotland 
  • Santander
  • TSB
  • Ulster Bank

Is PAYM Safe and Secure?

Before arranging this method of fee payment, I spoke at length to the Customer Relations department of my bank who assured me that they do not, whatever the app says when you install it, store details of your contacts in their databanks.

Only when you make or receive payments using PAYM will they record the transaction and the contact details.

As to whether the system is secure? Hmmmmm.

However, British Banks do seem to have put in place, as a priority, systems to check on unusual payments. They offer guarantees if things go wrong.

Why Use PAYM for Fee Payment?

  • It's very convenient! 
  • You can't pay out more than £250 per day. 
  • Your money transfers by Faster Payments which means it should arrive within 2 hours: often immediately.
  • No data is stored on your smartphone so if stolen, it reveals no bank accounts details.
  • To use this, you do need a smartphone!
  • For retailers it doesn't require expensive card-readers  and telephone charges. Instead, they'll be able to verify your payment has arrived using their own PAYM app.
  • You can receive payments this way too, although as yet, not from Business Bank accounts.
  • You can split bills, for example if you share a meal with a friend, then there's a way to split the bill. 
  • However, you do have to have cash or credit facilities in your account to be able to make the payment. In other words, it won't work if you have no money in the account linked to your mobile phone.

Jonathan Clogstoun-Willmott Books

All the books in the 'Chinese Medicine in English' series should be fully accessible on Kindles and Kindle apps. (Or you can buy the softback print editions, of course.)

('Western Astrology and Chinese Medicine' published 1986, was never available in a Kindle version.)

Request! Please!

If, having read one of my books you can write a review - preferably positive - that would help others decide whether to read it.

You can put your review on Amazon or, on this site, here.

And if you think it was terrible?

Well, let me know so I can improve it for the next person. (Ideally let me know before cursing it in public!)

Here are some of the books I (Jonathan) have written.

Subscribers to Kindle Unlimited can borrow the first four for 'free'.

Qi Stagnation - Signs of Stress

Yin Deficiency - Burnout and Exhaustion

Yang Deficiency - Get Your Fire Burning Again!

Yuck! Phlegm! How to Clear Your Phlegm ...

Western Astrology and Chinese Medicine

Published 1986 and, amazingly, still selling. Western Astrology and Chinese Medicine was apparently used back then by at least one acupuncture college to help students understand Chinese medicine! See Reviews.

Seven Reviews so far for Yuck Phlegm. (Despite the lurid cover, it explains the five main types of phlegm and what works best for each type. I hope it's easy to read and will be much more useful than all the websites on the subject.)

3000 years of Chinese being stressed, and at last, here's a book showing how all that experience can help you!

By the author of this website, it explains in simple English how to use stress to improve and enhance your life.
