How do I buy paid time for my account?

To buy a paid account, you purchase Dreamwidth Points in the Dreamwidth Shop, which is linked from the "Shop" menu of pages in the site skin.

On this page, you first choose whether you want to buy Dreamwidth Points for an account for yourself, for another existing account, or to create a new account, by following the appropriate link.

On the next page, choose whether you want to use Dreamwidth Points for a paid account or a premium paid account, and for what period of time, by selecting the appropriate button.

If you have Dreamwidth Points in your account, you can apply them to the option you choose. If you don't have Dreamwidth Points in your account, you can purchase more points and apply them to your chosen option in a single step.

If you're buying time for someone else's existing account, you must also enter the recipient's username. If you're paying to create a new account, for you or for someone else, you must enter the recipient's email address if you're creating a new account. You may also optionally select a date for delivery, and whether you want the gift to be anonymous. Pushing the "Add to Order" button will then add this to your cart.

At this point, you can either select "continue shopping" to add to your order if you are buying for more than one person or account, or you can choose to check out to pay for your order. You can pay by credit card or check or money order.

If you want to buy paid time for a community, you can choose either someone in your circle or a different account. If the account is in your Circle (that is, you are a member of the community, or you are subscribed to it), you can use the first link and select the community you want to give paid time to. If the community is not in your Circle, you should choose the second link and enter the community's username manually.

If you are ever unsatisfied with your purchase for any reason, please contact us by emailing and let us know what the problem is. We're happy to work with you to find a solution.
