I think it auto-subscribes. Are you doing it through PayPal? If so, it will auto renew until you cancel it.
There are two main ways of subscribing, monthly recurring and yearly recurring. For those people who don’t like PayPal, and there are quite a few, we have an alternative credit card processor, Stripe.
The yearly sub has a useful 15%+ discount compared to the monthly plan. As far as cancelling is concerned, you can either do it from the Account Upgrade Control Panel
or simply cancel from within your PayPal account.
Additionally, we’ve now got a new non-recurring
six-month subscription. This does not automatically renew, i.e. once the six-month period is up, you’ll have to take out a fresh subscription plan to avoid being downgraded.
I hope this will be particularly useful for those dipping their toes in the water here, and also as a convenient way to gift another member an upgrade. In fact, we’ll be sending a mailing out soon featuring this… together with a special offer!
Appreciate the feedback on the new Colony design, we’ll attend to all points raised.
Focus will soon shift to the “outer” website (which still has the old design).
