The BPS Board of Managment has decided to increase the cost for Sinhalese membership in BPS in order to offset the steep rise in postage within Sri Lanka. The membership increase will take effect 1 January, 2014. Details will be given in the newsletters that accompany the mailings in 2013.

PayPal, Shopping Bag, and Internet Payments

Effective 7 november, 2011, BPS will no longer be able to receive payments from PayPal. For this reason we are entering an agreement with Sampath Bank, Sri Lanka, to handle credit card payments via their secure Internet Payment Gateway (IPG). In the future we may install other internet payment options. We are considering AlertPay, 2CheckOut, Moneybookers, and others. But for the immediate future we intend to use the Sampath Bank IPG.

New Hosting Server

Concurrent with the change to the new IPG, we will be transferring the BPS site to a new Linux-based hosting server. When this occurs, the site may be offline for as much as eight hours. Usually, however, such a changeover takes only two to four hours. Please be patient; we will be back online as soon as we can.

Typ0graphic@l Errors, Bad Links, etc.

As with any large site web project, this project is bound to introduce errors onto the web site. We ask both for your patience and for your help. Please use our contact page to notify us of any problems you may encounter.

Browsing the bookshop

Our on-line bookshop has changed drastically. The bookshop may now be browsed using our bookshop search page, which features selections for category, publisher, publication type, and allows you to sort the result. Moreover, you can search for author or title, keyword, or by the catalog number.
