Beginning November 1, 2011, the fee for processing each Star Rating, Galaxy Award, or Diamond Award is $8.00. This $8.00 fee applies for those living in North America and those living outside North America. This policy is not retroactive; that is, fees already submitted with Star Ratings, Galaxy Award, or Diamond Award applications will not be changed. Cash or checks drawn on US banks are acceptable. Credit cards can no longer be used, but PayPal is now available. If you want to use PayPal, send the application without payment and say you want to use PayPal. When the application has been approved, we will tell you how to pay by PayPal. (If you are paying by cash or check, it's ok to send it with your application.) There is no fee for processing a conversion.
