Manage your Coil membership by selecting My Subscription from the Profile menu. The My Subscription dashboard appears by default. You can also select the Payments dashboard from the top navigation bar.
My Subscription dashboard
View and revoke access to authorized apps
Authorized apps are apps that you've given permission to use your Coil login information.
- Click within the Apps line.
- View the list of apps that have permission to use your Coil login, as well as what other information the app has access to and the date that access was given.
- Revoke an app's access by clicking Revoke.
- Click Revoke again to confirm.
Manage your membership
The options you see on your dashboard depends on the status of your membership.
The example below shows an active membership that will renew on December 17, 2022. To prevent the membership from renewing, the user would need to click Cancel before December 17.
The next example shows an active membership that's been canceled. This user's membership can still be used until the expiration date. The user could also choose to restart their membership by clicking Renew.
If you've never had a Coil membership, the dashboard shows a Subscribe option. Clicking Subscribe takes you to the payment details screen. If you'd like to purchase a membership, you must pay by card in US dollars. We accept most cards issued by the major credit card networks.
Remember, you only need a Coil membership if you want to support web monetized content. You don't need to purchase a membership to web monetize your own content.
- Locate the Renewal line.
- Click Cancel.
- Click Cancel membership.
Your membership is now canceled and will not renew. You can still use your membership until its expiration date.
Get the Coil extension
If you're signed in to your account on a supported browser but don't have the Coil extension installed, the dashboard provides a link to the extension in your browser's add-on store. In the example below, the Enable the Coil Extension panel links to the Firefox store.
Add, update, or remove your payment method
Your payment method is saved to your account when you purchase a Coil membership. You can see the payment method you used in the Payments dashboard.
Update your payment method
Click Update to change your payment method. Only one payment method is supported at a time. Your updated payment method will be used the next time your membership renews.
Remove your payment method
You can remove your payment method if you no longer have a Coil membership (e.g., you've canceled your membership). Click Remove, then click Remove again to verify the change.
You'll receive an error if you try to remove a payment method while your Coil membership is still active.
Add a payment method
Click Add card to add a payment method to your account.
Enter your payment details, then click Add card again.
Note that adding a payment method does not subscribe you to Coil. If you want to purchase a Coil membership after adding a card, you can do so from the My Subscription dashboard.
Redeem a promo code
To redeem a promo code from the Payments dashboard, enter your code in the Promo code field, then click Redeem.
View your billing history
If your account has a billing history, a list of each membership charge appears at the bottom of the Payments dashboard.
