As the entry form verifies the age of the competitor and the fees are charged directly to the competitor, the name and date of birth must be provided by the competitor, even if the competitor is a minor. Minors will be asked for their parent's contact information, which will be removed from the system when the member reaches the age of majority.

2. Pay the membership fee and other necessary fees

Each registered member can pay the fees on his/her own membership page, i.e. in his/her profile, via the online shop (Shopping Cart). The online shop is always open. In our online shop, you can pay using the online banking IDs of Finnish banks, the most common credit cards and MobilePay.

Payment in the online shop is made through the Paytrail Plc website. Paytrail Oyj acts as both the seller and the recipient of the payment for payments made with Visa, Visa Electron and MasterCard cards, and the transaction takes place between the customer and Paytrail Oyj. The FDO continues to act as the marketer and supplier of the products and is responsible for other obligations relating to the transaction.

To make a payment, log in with your credentials and select the payment you wish to make by clicking on the shopping cart.

At the time of payment, please remember to allow the payment service to return to the FDO page before closing the page!

Please check your profile to see if your payment was successful and contact our office immediately if you have any problems.

So what fees do I have to pay?

To compete in FDO competitions you will need to pay a membership fee (not for series marked Open), a competition licence and a competition fee.

The membership fee (15€) and the competition licence (20€) are valid from the date of payment until the end of the year (31.12.). New fees will be on sale at the beginning of each year.

The competition fee (varies per competition) is competition specific and is paid separately for each competition.
