In this section, you will need to select YES or NO to all answers, apart from 4.2 where you will have the option of uploading a copy of your Club Safeguarding policy.
To upload a cop of this policy you need to click on the Red paper icon highlighted.
In the pop-up box that appears, you then need to change the document type to Supporting document instead of Generated by COMET.
You then need to click the Choose button and upload your Clubs Policy by double clicking on it wherever it is saved on your device.
Once you are logged into COMET, click on Your Name in the top right corner of the Comet home screen as highlighted in White.
From the drop down, you need to click on 'MyComet' highlighted in Red.
Player memberships should be paid by the Player or Parent/Guardian to the club, with the club then paying this fee via MyComet.
The FAW advises clubs not to complete any Player Membership payments via MyComet until they have received payment from the Player or Parent/Guardian.
Once on the MyComet page, click on the Player Membership Fees button to open a dropdown menu.
Then select the Unpaid button to view a full list of all Player memberships that need to be paid for.
When accessing MyComet, as with the main COMET page, Google Chrome is the best and most compatible web browser so we would recommend using Google Chrome as your browser.
Once on the unpaid player memberships page, you need to select the relevant transactions you wish to pay for.
You can either tick the box at the top of the list, next to the Amount heading, if you want to select all memberships, or you can tick on specific membership fees individually.
Once you have selected all those you wish to pay for, click on the Add selected memberships to the cart button, above the list of unpaid memberships.
Once you have added the relevant player membership fees to your cart, you will notice in the top right hand corner of your screen, the shopping cart icon will now have a number in it to reflect the number of transactions you have selected to purchase.
At this point you can either return to your My Comet dashboard to add any further products to your shopping cart, such as Competition entry fees or affiliation fees, or if ready to purchase these Player membership fees, click on the Cart Summary button to proceed.
Once you have clicked Cart Summary, you now need to review your purchase and tick to agree you have read the terms and conditions of the transaction.
Once you have read and ticked the box to confirm, a yellow PayPal button will appear.
Click on this button to proceed to PayPal to complete your payment.
At this point the system will take you to your PayPal login page to complete the payment.
Input your PayPal log-in details and click the Log In button.
You now just need to follow the usual PayPal check out process.
Once logged into PayPal, you will be on the payment summary page.
You can still review your purchase in the top right-hand corner and the summary page will then contain billing addresses and payment methods you may use to make payments via this account.
If you need to cancel the payment at this stage, you can click on the Cancel and return to FAW button highlighted.
If ready to pay though, just click on Pay Now.
PayPal will process the payment and once successful, the system will take you back to your MyComet homepage.
You will get the above message on your screen confirming the payment has been made whilst the system sends you back to MyComet.
You must not close or refresh your browser when the above message is showing. You should only do so once you have been returned back to MyComet.
Otherwise there is a risk you could be charged multiple times or there is a chance the transaction will not record on COMET but you could still be charged.
Once back on the MyCOMET homepage, you will see a record of this payment in the My Items section.
You will also be able to access a copy of the payment invoice in the Payments section underneath the items section.
You will also have received a confirmation email as soon as the payment went through, listing any products purchased, along with a copy of the invoice attached to the email as proof of payment.
You have done everything you need to in order to purchase a Player Membership via COMET.
