Credit cards
All credit card payments to Mates Down Under are handled through PayPal. We have chosen this as it is simple and, just as importantly, secure. You do not need a paypal account, we just use them to process the card payment. Sometimes, credit cards are refused - PayPal blame the card issuer and vice-versa. Trying again a few hours later, or the day after generally resolves the issue.
I have paid, why can I not contact other members?

This is because your subscription may not have activated automatically.

There are several reasons why this could be the case, if you do not return to the Mates Down Under site using the link in PayPal, there may be a glitch at the PayPal end, there may be a connectivity problem and so on.

We try to monitor payments and check that they activate automatically, but we may miss some. Sometimes we cannot find you on the system to check, for example, if your PayPal email is different to the one you used to register, so, if yours does not activate, please let Kev, the webmaster, know at

What are the costs?

Registration is free, browsing is free although after looking at 3 profiles you will need to register on the site to view any more.

You only need to pay when you are ready to contact another member. Membership levels for the site vary and the current pricing can be found by clicking on the subscription button when you are logged in.

All of the paid membership options will give you full access to your messages and unlimited contacts with other members.

You can sign up for them through your members area - click on the subscriptions link. Payment is securely online using a credit card and taken via PayPal (no PayPal account needed).
