The only way to sign up for a non-expiring (recurring) membership is to have a PayPal account. It is PayPal that automates the process of charging your credit card every year to keep your membership active. However, if you don’t have a PayPal account, you can create one as part of the sign up process. All you need is a credit card, and a valid email address. It is very easy. Watch the slide show below:
The question how can I pay if I don’t have a pay pal account, was not answered. I cancelled my pay pal account and do not want to reinstate it, so how do I pay?
Seems like I got membership with you more than a year ago. Used the Streets and trips data well. Never heard anything about renewal, and no I don’t want it automatic. Do you notify for rtenewals? Or how do folks know when it expires?
Our system does not yet provide dates or send renewal notices. You can always log in to determine your current status. When your year is up, you get 2 weeks additional time before the system expires you. There is a Renew Now link. It is important to follow all the instructions to avoid an incomplete registration. We are working on making it simpler.
