To subscribe, first you need to find a Star to subscribe to. You can do it by browsing our extensive Stars directory or by conducting a search - you can see it at the top of every page on this site. Once you find somebody you are interested in, just click the "Subscribe" button placed on the Star's page.
You can unsubscribe at any time - just go to the page "My Subscriptions" and click "Unsubscribe" link that can be found next to the Star's name.
While subscribing, you will be asked to fill out a secure credit card authorisation form. You need to do it only once, when subscribing for the first time. For subsequent subscriptions you can use the same credit card or add a new card.
There are many reasons why your payment can be declined. Credit card companies don't tell us the reason behind it. The best way to handle this situation is to contact your bank directly to make sure that your account information is accurate and/or you have sufficient funds.
After a short period of time we will automatically retry to make the payment and notify you of this attempt and the outcome of it.
This is not common, but can happen. Normally when a Star puts his/her page on pause there will be a message that explains the situation. In this case your recurring payment remains frozen (on pause) until the Star returns and resumes their activity. So, you are not being charged for the officially paused subscription.
If the Star has not made an announcement about the pause, you may want to contact this Star and find out what is happening. As a result, you may receive a refund from the Star.
Also, you can cancel your subscription at any time. Furthermore, while canceling, you will be asked for the reason why you wish to cancel. Each and every answer will be counted towards the Star's credibility and may have consequences.
More on our policy regarding refunds you can find on dedicated page Refund policy.
Anyone can become a Referral Associate. This role gets the best of both worlds: percentage from the revenue of a Star and/or part of the service fees.
The more Stars Referral Associates bring to SubscribeStar - the more money they get.
