Is it truth or myth that the Sovereign Military Order of Malta

Is it truth or myth that the Sovereign Military Order of Malta (SMOM) offer Knights title for whomever that affords a payment?
This is a truth, not a myth.

With all the new sections and subsections of SMOM, the payments are expected for knights and dames. The original payments traveled back to the origination of the group, where a knight for example would pay the "fee" to become armed and armored with his traditional wares.

In modern day, members actually do pay thousands each year depending on the amount of fees to each organization in order to remain a "member" though obviously the difference in modern day is probably a little different(from any potential commercialization to keep the group running) compared to hundreds of years past.
