We know that a number of members have requested more guidance on access and use of our new Portal, particularly with regard to membership, invoices and payments. We hope to provide this here.
Our new Portal allows you to view and edit your contact details and company description, as well as view and pay your invoices and track which events you have registered for. You can access the portal by clicking the My Profile icon at the top right-hand side of the website.
Once logged in, you will also be able to connect with other members and access a wide range of content that is only available to our members. Logging in is easy. Your user name will generally be the primary work e-mail address that we have registered for you and if you forget your password, it is really easy to reset.
To learn more about your new portal please watch the Portal introduction video:
For a detailed overview on Invoicing & Payments please see our video below:
We have also compiled the following Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) based on your e-mails and calls to us over the last few weeks relating to invoicing and payments:
We recognise that you may have received fraudulent requests for payment. Please note that all your invoices are now held in our secure membership portal and we only e-mail copies of those invoices when specifically requested by you. Please contact your account manager or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org immediately if you receive any of the following:
- A request for payment that does not contain a link to our online portal
- An invoice sent as an e-mail attachment without you specifically having asked for one
- Correspondence from any e-mail address NOT ending in @etoa.org
Our system automatically issues invoices and issues payment reminders for all members. As a buyer there is no obligation to make any membership payment in 2021, so if you do not intend making a contribution, please e-mail email@example.com and we will issue an appropriate credit note which will stop the payment reminders.

We are in the process of removing the payment chasers from our system for buyers. Please ignore any that you receive from us. We still raise an invoice for buyer membership in order to help members assess the value of their membership should they be able to make a voluntary contribution.
If you wish to pay your invoice in full, then please just log into the online portal and follow the instructions Q16 If you wish to make part payment, please let us know via email firstname.lastname@example.org before you pay so that we can issue you with a credit note for the amount that will remain unpaid. This ensures that your account is up to date.
