Remove the 50p transaction fee

When joining up to a society/club via the Students' Union website there is a 50p transaction fee charged when you get to the online checkout. This may dissuade potential members from joining societies and clubs and diminish their student experience at UWE.

1:34pm on 18 Oct 16 I, having just finished setting up the Bee Keeping society, have asked about funding and one of the biggest things is that if I created Bee Keeping without charging anything for membership(which i have done) I would not be able to ask to purchase anything for the society. The difference for Bee Keeping is that because it is a sustainable and green society I can apply to funds for this very sort of thing... Is this what you are talking about? If not, sorry for waffling on.
