Frequently Asked Questions
How do I become a paid supporter / member?
We have numerous supporter options including:
- Annual Paid Supporter (for confirmed Tesla Owners Only)
- Signature Supporters (for confirmed Tesla Owners Only)
- Holiday Home Supporters (included with the above)
- Supplier Supporters (for Tesla related products/services)
Follow the instructions on the above links to become a paid supporter. These are subscriptions which will renew each year on the anniversary of purchase, however, you can amend or cancel your subscription at any point from your account. The suggested supporter fee is £50 a year.
How are funds spent?
Funds are spent on various projects that are outlined by the Tesla Owners UK President each year during the AGM, all of the projects aim to get us closer to reaching our mission. We’re all volunteers and take no salary and only necessary expenses inline with our club rules.
A lot of work goes into this passion project and over the years we’ve spent a lot of time and our own money getting to this point, as I’m sure you can imagine a lot happens behind the scenes to keep the group running smoothly, we hope you support us with our mission by purchasing a welcome pack & becoming a yearly supporter.
All committee members and the President pay the same supporter fees.
Accounts are viewable to all supporters on this page (alongside meeting minutes etc)
Why doesn’t Tesla fund this?
In short, it’s not something they’re willing to offer and I’m not sure we would accept it even if they did offer, by being self-funding it ensures that we continue to be independent which I believe is vital.
My partner, spouse &/or children would like a name badge do we have to buy multiple packs?
You can do but I’d recommend you buy one supporter pack and once you’ve completed payment then go to secondary/replacement name badges and purchase one or more of these as required.
Do you store my debit/credit card details?
No debit/credit card information is ever stored on our servers. We use Stripe.com, one of the most secure and reputable payment processors available. All card numbers are encrypted on disk with AES-256 and decryption keys are stored on separate machines. None of Stripe’s internal servers and daemons are able to obtain plaintext card numbers; instead, they can just request that cards be sent to a service provider on a static whitelist.
Stripe’s infrastructure for storing, decrypting, and transmitting card numbers runs in separate hosting infrastructure and doesn’t share any credentials with Stripe’s primary services (API, website, etc.) For more information, you can visit Stripe’s security policy right here!
In other words, your debit/credit card details are safe!
I don’t want a welcome pack &/or don’t want to sign up to a yearly subscription, is there an alternative?
Sure, we’ve got the limited edition signature supporter package which is a fixed one off payment for 3 years of access. Pay what you want for it and don’t worry about it for 3 years.
I want to support the group but the price is too high/expensive
Please remember we work hard to get exclusive discounts for our supporters and we hope you should be able to recoup some of your money back straight after joining.
You can also amend and cancel your subscription at any point, so in the very worst case you would be paying £35 for 1 year, we hope you continue after the first year but that option is available.
However, we do understand that not everyone is comfortable paying £35-£50 a year so we offer a discounted signature supporter rate of £30 per year if you pre-pay for 3 years of access which grants you access to all the benefits above minus a welcome pack.
When will I get my pack?
This depends, we do print runs roughly every 3 months as this helps to keep costs down, so you will get yours as soon as it’s ready. We could offer weekly prints but we’re all volunteers so I’m reluctant to down tools every week to pack up welcome packs. If there is a large event upcoming we will do our best to get packs ready for these.
Can I purchase in person?
Currently, we’re only accepting orders via our online shop. Due to personalisation of various items within the packs, we will not be selling welcome packs on any event day. If you’re not attending an upcoming event you can pay £2 extra to have your welcome pack sent via post.
If you require a second name badge (for partner/spouse/children etc) please purchase the above pack and then after payment purchase an additional badge and lanyard from this link.
