How will my membership be renewed?

Your membership will automatically renew at the end of your 30 day subscription, if you have funds available.

If you haven't cancelled the membership, we will try renew your membership everyday for 30 days from the day it ends.

How do I upgrade my membership?

Visit the membership page and select the plan you wish to upgrade to, then click "Choose Plan". You'll be upgraded instantly on a new 30 day subscription, plus, we'll refund the remainder of your previous membership plan!

How do I downgrade my membership?

Visit the membership page and select the plan you wish to downgrade to, then click "Choose Plan". Your new membership will begin once your current plan expires. That way, you'll still get all the benefits of your current plan until your new plan becomes active.

We'll also save your old membership details, in case you decide to upgrade your membership at a later date.
