Due to all the additional admin work involved (and some unhappiness at the bank), we will no longer will be accepting checks/cheques for less than 2 years subscription at once.
I can forsee a drop in subscribers
If people are paying monthly it will no doubt means that this is the easiest way for them to budget. Getting asked to pay up front for 2 years will probably mean that many will be unable to budget and will stop their subscription.
With the volume of worldwide subs there are surely it would be simple enough to operate three bank accounts in £, € and $ within your bank?
If your bank is unhappy with the amount of "work" you are giving them, remember you are paying them substantial fees, then you should look at moving to a better bank.
A simple excel spreadsheet should enable you to keep track of payments received, and reduce admin.
Hopefully the volume of subs who do not renew will not materially affect the site.
