Please note that we don't accept foreign cheques anymore. The bank fee for depositing foreign cheques and money orders is now extremely high. As a result, it is no longer feasible for IPF to absorb the banking fee. If you really want to pay that way, we have to ask you to please add £15, 18 euro, US$25, or CAN$25 to the total amount of your payment if you are sending a foreign cheque or International Money Order. Payments made in Cash, or by PayPal, do not require the extra fee. One payment for total amount.
