You may submit your application form electronically, or print out the form and mail it with your check/M.O.. If submitting the form electronically, please (1) include a note with the check, containing your contact details and other relevant information; and (2) add a note in the Comment box on the form to say that the check or M.O. is on its way. This will help us to quickly identify your form and payment.

What Happens Next?

Our Membership Services Coordinator will receive your application form and payment. S/he will then send you an email, welcoming you to the IBBA.

At the same time s/he will forward your details to the IBBA Website Manager, who will:

  • create your IBBA website membership account;
  • send you some information, which will include your website password (which you can change later if you wish) and instructions explaining how to add your details to the IBBA Membership Database;
  • subscribe you to the IBBA Mailing List, our private email discussion list.

This is normally a fairly quick process, but as it is a manual process it may take a day or two, depending on when our officers are in front of their computers to pick up their mail and carry out the necessary actions. If you do not hear anything within three working days for electronic submission, or six working days for postal submission, please email the Membership Services Coordinator so that we can be investigate.


If you have any questions concerning your payment, please contact the Membership Services Coordinator.

More information on Credit Card payments

The International Butterfly Breeder's Association accepts credit card payments for membership dues through the PayPal service.

When making a payment through PayPal you can be assured that your transaction is secure and private. PayPal will ask you for your email address and for you to choose a password in order to complete the transaction. A receipt of the transaction will be sent to your email address. If you should log into PayPal to make future payments to the IBBA or payments to other PayPal members, your credit card information is already saved in the system. Again, all transactions are done through a secure server and no transactions can take place without your direction.

If you are renewing your membership and wish to pay by credit card, select a membership option below.
