Online payments can be made by credit or debit card or through net-banking. These payments are not collected by NSC directly but by the service provider. 

Once payment is received by the service provider in cleared funds, the service provider will inform  NSC to confirm the details of the successful payment made by the member/non-member, or third party making payment. On receipt of this confirmation NSC will confirm to the member/non-member that the payment has been received and accepted by NSC. In the event that the member/non-member does not receive confirmation within 15 days of making the payment it is the responsibility of the member/non-member to check with NSC that the payment has been accepted. 

The member/non-member shall remain responsible for the membership, publication, event or other fees until such time as the confirmation as referred to above is received from NSC in relation to each of these amounts owed to NSC.
