Making Payments on OSM

Step 1 – Login

Login to Online Scout Manager. If you don’t already have an account, you will be sent an invite to register.

Step 2 – Navigate to ‘Payments’

Using the left navigation window, head to Payments

Step 3 – Select payment

Click Pay Now to setup a one-time payment for the annual subscription via GoCardless.

You can also choose to ‘create a subscription‘ which will take the annual payment automatically while your child is in this section.

Step 4 – Add account (for first time use)

When prompted, click Add Account and enter your bank details to GoCardless.

One time payment direct debits
Even when making a one-time payment, users must click ‘set up direct debit’. This mandate exists only for the one payment you have authorised. No further payments can be taken. A parent must authorise every payment administered through OSM.

All bank details are held securely by GoCardless and neither OSM, The Scout Association, or the 6th EK Scout Group have access to them at any time.
