There are 3 ways to pay, by cheque, by by bank transfer and credit card (requires a PayPal account).

Bank transfer is best for euros, a cheque is best for US $ or UK £. Paypal can be used for all other currencies. Do not use bank transfer for anything except euros. VH3 participants are encouraged to pay cash at one of the regular Sunday Hashes, unless you use Online Banking.

By Cheque

If your bank account is outside the euro zone, then the best method to pay is to send a cheque in UK pounds or US dollars to the following address :-

John Russell
Propst Wittola-Str. 28A
2301 Probstdorf

Please make all cheques out to John Russell and include a note or post-it inside with your full name and Hash Name, so that I know who has paid. I will send a receipt via e-mail as soon as I receive the cheque. If you do not receive this receipt within 1 week of sending the cheque, please send an e-mail to I may wait and send them all in to my bank in one batch, so please do not be surprised if it takes time (a month or so) to clear the cheque.

By Bank Transfer

The second method is by bank transfer. This method is recommended if you have a bank account in the euro zone. Please do not use this for US $ or UK £, just send me a cheque. Any transfer which results in a fee in euros will result in my asking you to pay the shortfall on the weekend.

Name on account: John Russell

Please note that Austria is phasing out the use of the old "Kontonummer" and "Bankleitzahl" and replacing them with the IBAN and BIC for all bank transfer within Austria, as well as those to countries within the Single European Payment Area (SEPA), which is the EU plus a few other countries (Switzerland and Monaco).  If in doubt, use the IBAN and BIC codes.

IBAN = AT58 1100 0005 8486 0100     (in Austria only, you may be able to use 00584860100 as Kontonummer )
BIC  = BKAUATWW                             (in Austria only, you may be able to  12000 as Bankleitzahl)

Bank Name:            Bank Austria ,
Name of Branch:     Vienna International Centre, Vienna, Austria
Address:                 Wagramerstrasse 5, 1400 Vienna, Austria

Please make sure that you label the transfer with your name in the reason for payment field ("Verwendungszweck"), so it can be recognized easily on the bank statements. Please email me as soon as you have paid, so I can make sure you do get the credit for the payment (just in case the bank does not forward all the information on the transfer to me).

By Credit Card

The third method is to pay using a credit card via PayPal. Use this for currencies other than Euros, US Dollars or UK Pounds, or if you just prefer to use your PayPal account. This is a secure method of paying over the Internet using Visa, MasterCard, Discovery or American Express. The disadvantage is that there is a registration procedure before you can pay. You will be billed initially in euros and this will be converted to whatever currency you use for your credit card in the normal way. If you wish to pay by credit card, send me an e-mail ( using the email address that is registered to your PayPal account, and I will send you a request for payment via PayPal.

Any questions to John "Glo-Balls" Russell.
