Membership fees and renewal
The Membership fee is stated in the User profile of a Member and on the sign-up page. From time to time, we may offer different membership terms, and the fees for such membership may vary. The Membership fee is non-refundable except as expressly set forth in these Terms. Taxes may apply on either or both of the membership fee and the reduced shipping charges for Members. Only credit cards are eligible for payment of your Membership. Do not sign up for Membership with a debit card. Also known as a "check" or "ATM" card, a debit card typically has the word "debit" printed on the face of the card. If all credit cards we have on file for you are declined for payment of your Membership fee, you must provide us a new credit card promptly or your Membership will be canceled. If you provide us with a new card and are successfully charged, your new membership period will be based on the original renewal date and not the date of the successful charge.
