Select Billing and locate your subscription plan at the bottom of the page.  Click Change Plan and Cancel Membership. Your membership will be cancelled and your access will be removed at the end of your current payment period.

 

My credit card is being declined.  Why is that?

Many credit/debit cards have online purchase restrictions. If your card is being declined, please contact your credit card company to let them know the purchase you would like to make is valid. Also, certain credit/debit cards do not allow for recurring subscription billing, and therefore, may be denied.

 

How do I redeem a gift card?

Customers who have a gift card can redeem their code via a special redemption page.

Clicking on the Join Page or Get Access Now button will allow your customers to claim a gift card.

This is a 2 step process.

Step 1

Redeem the code and create an account as demonstrated in this gif below.

The redeemed gift card amount will be added to the customers balance.

Step 2

While logged in, they can go back to the join page or click on content in the catalog (via the 'Get Access Now' button), and select a subscription option. During the checkout, the end-user's gift balance will be applied towards their chosen subscription.

At this time, a credit card is still required to set up a subscription, even though a gift balance will be used initially. The credit card will not be charged until after their gift balance has been used in full and their subscription is set to renew.

How do I redeem a coupon?

Please note that coupons and gift cards are two different things. During the checkout process, customers can enter a coupon code in order to receive their discount. Customers can enter one coupon code per purchase.

Depending on the device being used, the checkout experience and placement of the coupon code field may vary. It is important to inform customers about the coupon code location to ensure they are able to enter their code before completing checkout.

Desktop browser

The coupon code field will appear on the right side of the final checkout page.

Mobile Browser

In-App Purchases

Coupon codes cannot be redeemed via in-app purchases through apps. This is due to the payment being processed by a different system.
