It is now in principle possible to pay directly on-line, using a UK credit or debit card, by going to the LPO's main website ( and choosing 'Mon Espace LPO' on the home page. Existing members will be able to become registered via 'Je suis déjà inscrit' as long as they have a note of their LPO membership number which should appear on correspondence from the LPO. Those wishing to join from scratch need to click on 'Je veux adhérer' and follow the instructions. The questions that need answering are in French, of course, but are along the lines of those used when making any purchases on-line (e.g. via Amazon).
