WHEN YOU NEED TO RENEW
You will know it is time to renew when you get an email notice that your membership is due to be renewed.
When your old membership finally expires, you’ll see a link in the member menu: “Renew your membership."
When you renew the first time using the new membership management system, you will need to set up an account on the membership system which is independent of the GNPA website. It is a highly secure service we use to manage and collect payments for memberships.
Setting up this account is a one time event.
Here’s How To Renew Your Membership:
- Log in.
- Click on the “Renew Membership - Expired” link.
- Next, set up your billing account by filling in your profile information and payment data.
- Then select the appropriate membership (regular, senior, etc.) because you have not previously set up your billing account there in no existing membership on file.
(If you do not see a list of memberships, click on the “Join the GNPA” menu item in the member’s menu and choose your membership.)
- Click Subscribe.
- That’s it, your membership has been renewed.
USING DISCOUNT COUPON CODES
If you have a discount coupon code, you will enter that when you are completing payment for your subscription. The discount will be applied to thel charged to your card when you make the payment.
If You Do Not Want to Use Your Credit Card...
If you are afraid to use your credit card online, here is how to pay for your renewal:
Go to Home Depot, Wal-Mart, CVS, Walgreens or other store and buy a PREPAID DEBIT CARD from Visa, Master Card or American Express for an amount large enough to cover your membership. Use it to pay just like you would use any credit card. Since it is an anonymous card, there is no way to use it to access your bank or credit cards.
Unfortunately, due to the cost of making the option available, our membership management system does not accept checks, cash, PayPal or farm animals, etc. for payment... To pay for your membership requires that you set up an account with the payment system and pay by a credit or debit card. That both allows the membership system to validate your membership is current and set up notices to renew when the time comes.
After you have selected and paid for a membership, renewal notices and renewals will be virtually automatic.
If You Do Not Want to Automatically Renew Your Membership
This is only possible by using a prepaid credit card.
By using a prepaid card, at renewal time, there will be no funds available and the account will not renew. AT that point, you will have to go in and enter a new prepaid card to renew.

IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM
Contact: Website Manager
If you are having a problem, our apologies, we'll get you taken care of and make sure you don't miss out on anything while we sort out your membership situation.
Please let us know what menu item you used, what the problem was and if possible, send us screen captures of the pages or error you are seeing OR the exact text of the message or error you are seeing.
Unfortunately, there are so many possible combinations of memberships, status codes and other details that make figuring out how to help hard without some detail.
After the initial renewal from the old system, it'll be smooth as silk going forward.
