The remaining steps of the application process only apply to members applying for the full paid membership that include a physical card and access to instore offers.

Confirm delivery details

Simply confirm a UK delivery address on this step - if the postcode lookup option does not show your exact address, i.e. flat/room/building number, please select the option to 'enter address manually' instead - this will ensure the card reaches you directly and is not delayed in the post.

We are unable to post cards outside of the UK, if you living outside or the UK or due to move here for your studies soon, you can check with your place of study if you can have the card posted to them for collection.

Upload your photo

You have the option of uploading your photo from your device, or using your webcam. You can find some general tips to help you take a good quality photo and upload that succesfully here. In summary; ensure the photo clearly shows your face (no filters, no friends in the background etc...), the file size is between 50kB and 10MB and the dimensions are 600px by 750px (w x h).

Make payment

You're now on the last step of the application and all that is required is to complete payment before a world of savings and membership perks are opened up to you!

Payment can be made with all bank/credit cards on our web application, as well as with apple pay if applying through our app.

One last thing.... If you ordered a TOTUM membership that includes PASS, you will now need to login to the TOTUM app to complete PASS ID verification.
