Join AARO using an Offline Payment option:

SEPA bank transfer or virement. If you have a bank account in the SEPA (Single European Payment Area), you can send money to AARO using the transfer/virement facility of your local bank. This is usually a free service for both you and AARO.

Euro-denominated check. You may send a check denominated in Euros directly to AARO’s headquarters. Please add €15 to the total if your check is from a bank outside France.

International money transfer service. Many Americans living overseas use a money transfer service, such as Wise or XE Money Transfer. (These are less costly than traditional wire transfers through a bank.)

Direct debit. You may opt to allow AARO to directly debit for bank accounts in a SEPA country, either on a one-time or on a permanent basis (For the latter you are debited each year for your membership fee.). You can cancel a permanent direct debit order at anytime.
