Continuing from posts 1 and 2 where existing members learned how to access their welcome email, reset their profile password, logon to their profile and edit their profile, we will now explore how to renew your membership. We assume that you know how to log on and view your my profile screen from previous posts. We are going to start at step 6 of the steps below.
Receive the Welcome email.
Click the link to request a password reset.
Reset your password.
Login to Your Profile
Confirm your profile data and correct.
Click the Renew button
Select any changes on the renew application.
Select your payment option
6. You are now ready to renew. So lets click the renew button. (you must be logged in and in your my profile)
You will be taken to the renew membership application. Be sure to scroll down the entire page. Follow the directions at the top of the page.
Above you see the membership you are renewing. (need to change a level of membership? That is a different post, so hold on tight and come back later or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.)
Below is the bottom of the screen, trail map purchase and Mailed newsletter purchase are optional. Acknowledgement of the Release waiver is required. (so is submitting it to us) When your application is correct and meeting your needs hit Update and Next.
8. Now you get to decide how you are going to pay. You will be presented with a screen showing your total. In this example I have a $35 family membership, I asked for $5 trail map, and I asked to have a $5 newsletter mailing. Bringing my total to $45. You have two options to pay. Invoice me: button will be for those that rather mail in a check. Pay online allows you to pay via paypal or credit card immediately.
If you select Invoice Me, your membership will not be activated for 2017 until your payment is received and processed.
Under the blue box is your application, please be sure to check this before selecting the payment option to make sure your data is correct.
Confirm the data by scrolling down, sorry no screen shot of your profile data, you have seen the same thing a bunch of times in these blog posts, so I am sure you understand how to review it again.
9. I won’t demonstrate the invoice, if you are struggling with how to mail a check, well not sure I can help you there. Just click the invoice me button.
Lets discuss pay online. When you click the pay online button you will get this screen.
You have one of two options, log on with your paypal account and follow steps. Or select the Pay with Debit or Credit Card. Unfortunately this is the end of our demonstration as I just have no desire to $45 for a couple screen shots. If you made it this far, I pretty sure you can figure out the rest.
