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.

Cancel membership

  1. Locate the Renewal line.
  2. Click Cancel.
