To allow APDT website (and other important ones) to use pop-ups, while blocking all others, you can add www.apdt.com.au to the list of allowed sites.

How to access pop-up blocker setting:

All about PayPal

What is PayPal and how does it work?

  • PayPal is a "middleman service" for online purchasing, just like wire transfer in the old days. Over 99 million Internet users now prefer to use PayPal to make online payment.
  • As an online financial transaction broker, PayPal lets people send money to each other's email addresses. At no time will either party see the other's credit card or bank information. Similar to an escrow service, PayPal acts as the middleman holder of money and through its policies, practices and business integrity, PayPal has earned the trust of both sellers and buyers. With multiple guarantees in place, buyers and sellers entrust PayPal with their credit card and bank information and PayPal keeps that private customer information secret and secured. Then, while "blinded" from the other praty's confidential information, strangers safely send money to each other through PayPal and email.

You don't need special technology nor a business license to send/receive money through PayPal. The only requirements are:

  1. A valid email address.
  2. A valid credit card or bank account.

Does it cost money to have a PayPal account?

  • PayPal is FREE for buyers and for sending money to someone else. Once a buyer sets up a PayPal account, it costs nothing to send money to a vendor. The funds are withdrawn from the buyer's credit card or bank account, or both. PayPal doesn't charge buyers to send money.

How safe is PayPal?

  • Although no system is 100% foolproof, PayPal keeps errors and fraud to a bare minimum by utilising the latest in secure technology and employing a large team of experts in all areas of online safety. Every transaction is confirmed by email to the PayPal account holder and any transaction you wish to dispute will be resolved by a team of analysts who is accessible 24/7. PayPal also guarantees 100% protection against unauthorised payments from your account.

How do I open a PayPal account?

  • Please go to www.paypal.com.au and click "Sign Up". If you don't sell online, choose a Personal account and follow the instruction. You need a valid email address and a valid credit card or bank account.
  • If I don't want to open a PayPal account, can I still renew my APDT membership online and pay with credit card?
  • Yes, you can. When you renew your membership online, please choose PayPal as method of payment and you will be redirected to PayPal website. Your payment summary will be displayed on the left hand side and on the right hand side there is a login box. Underneath the login box, click "Don't have a PayPal account?" link and follow the instruction. You need a valid email address and a valid credit card to finalise the payment.

I requested a new password but still can't login to APDT website with the new password.

  • If your membership is current (ie. you have paid for this year's membership), most likely it's a typo problem. Please ensure that you have typed in the password correctly. If you copy and paste the password from your email, please ensure you don't copy any blank spaces before and after your password because this would make your password invalid.

Library

How do I borrow a library item?

How many items can I borrow at any one time and how much does it cost?

  • You can borrow a maximum of 2 items and it's free to borrow items from our library. Please read the Library Borrowing Rules for more information.

I click on the "Library Catalogue" link but the page is empty?

  • Only financial members of APDT Australia may borrow from the library. If you're a member, please login to view the library catalogue.

I thought you have hundreds of books, DVDs and CDs in your collection. Why am I only seeing a few in the online catalogue?

  • Yes, we do have hundreds of items but we're still in the process of uploading them all to the online database. In the meantime, if you can't find the titles you want please download the complete catalogue and email your loan request to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Some library items have a red cross icon under status. What does it mean?

  • The red cross icon means that particular item is on loan and you can't borrow it. Once the item has been returned, the status will change to a check box that you can select to borrow.

Can I write a Review for books I have read?

  • Yes, all financial members can write a review and give ratings to library items. Just click on the "Review" button under each item and submit your review.

I borrowed a library item but the librarian sent me an email saying it's on loan by another member. How did this happen?

  • When a member submit a request to borrow a book, the librarian will review it before approving/declining the request. In the meantime, the item is still shown as available on the Library Catalogue. If there are more than requests for the same item, the librarian will loan the item to the first one on queue (determined by the system time stamp).

If you are an Associate Member, you can upgrade your membership any time. Follow the steps below to upgrade to a Full Member and pay the $10 difference in the membership fee.

How to Upgrade Your Membership

  • In Your Member Profile panel to the right, click Member Profile. Your Membership Plan opens.

  • Select Full Membership.

  • Click Upgrade at the foot of the page and follow the prompts to pay the $10.

You can pay by PayPal (you don't have to have an account) or Direct Deposit.

  • Direct Deposit: We display your Invoice. Take a note of the Invoice Number because you must quote that number when you pay from your bank. If you do not quote the Invoice Number, we cannot locate your payment and your upgrade won't take place.
