What options are available to contribute to become a VIP Member?
    As of right now, we offer Shopify as a middleman service to process and verify transactions. For those who are not familiar with Shopify, this payment processing service catered mainly to small businesses as a means of credit card processing in person transactions through the use of their patented smartphone card swiper compatable with both iOS and Android devices. Shopify also offers the means of payment processing for purchases over the internet, which is what Anarchy Nation is using currently.

What happened to Google Wallet and Ribbon.co for processing transactions?
    Google Wallet (formerly Google Checkout) was Google's means as a viable competitor to PayPal. We used Google Checkout/Wallet to process transactions between 2010 and 2013. Unfortunately, Google decided to back out of the payment processing business. This applied to all of the vendors using the service, and it terminated all of their services in late 2013.

    After searching for yet another alternative, we came across Ribbon.co which was a small company that provided payment services. Ribbon was a service much like Google Wallet where those looking for VIP Memberships could complete their transactions within 5 minutes. There was no need to sign up on their website. It was a quick and easy way to process payments, and we at Anarchy Nation loved their setup and services. Unfortunately, Ribbon stopped their services in May 2015, and in the same way Google Wallet had done so. Ribbon.co changed their focus at the time to the likes of donation drives and a KickStarter clone.

Why don't you accept PayPal transactions?
    When Anarchy Nation was originally Anarchology.org, we used PayPal as the only way for users to contribute to gain VIP status. However, there was a rather horrible falling-out with the service. Anarchy Nation will never use PayPal again, and has become Anti-PayPal. Click here for more information!

Who sees my personal information when contributing?
    Just like other services like PayPal and the our former service Ribbon.co, each Shopify payment service acts like a middleman for sensitive information. They deal with the personal information (i.e. credit card numbers and otherwise personal information). Only the transaction numbers, email address, and sometimes the physical address is shown in a transaction. This information is only used to locate a user’s account in order to add the VIP Membership status to it. We never have and never will share this information with any other entity.

Can other members or guests see any of my personal information?
    No. Members and guests are not able to view any information regarding contributions. However, if you are added as a VIP Member, they can see that in your member status (i.e. Orange bar stating you are VIP). Contributions are separate from the website, and are only viewable to Administrators.

What does the contribution look like on my billing statement?
    Under the current payment processing system through Shopify, you will see SQ *CHAOTIX on your statement. We chose the term CHAOTIX in order to make the purchase seem more discrete on the billing statement rather than the use of the website's name. We understand that family members might see your statements, you would likely not have them see website names in the desciptions. We got your back!

I contributed, but don't yet have an account on Anarchy Nation. What should I do?
    Don't worry, this isn't a problem. You can create an account using the Register button located on the top bar of the site. Registration is free, and takes a couple minutes. Once registered and have activated your account, you can simply contact Anarchy Nation through private message when logged in, or email using the information at the bottom of the page to contact via email.

If I contribute to become a VIP Member, am I going to be charged when the year(s) end?
    No. There are no recurring costs. Contributing to become a VIP Member is not a subscription. When any VIP member reaches the end of their yearly or bi-yearly membership, we send out a private message asking if they would like to renew. If they do not respond by the given date, their account is then set to regular member.

Do I have to be a member to contribute?
    No. If your wish is to stay a guest (non-member) of the site or just a regular member, you can still contribute. We respect the wishes of all viewers of the site on whether they want certain accesses to the site or not. Every penny helps pay for the server fees!

What will I see in the hidden sections available if I become VIP?
    As of this moment, VIP Membership opens up two large categories of boards on the site. These would be the VIP Danger Zone, and VIP Discussion Section. This opens up more than 2000 topics not visible by either guests or regular members. For those who look to post Non-Nude content, it also opens up a new section where only VIP members can post, but everyone else can just view.

Why hasn't my status changed to VIP? I contributed and it's been hours!
    The process to add privileges to member accounts is not instantaneous after contributing. An Administrator must first verify the transaction, and associate a member's account with the given transaction. This can take up to 24 hours if the email address, username and transaction ID are known by the Administrator.

    Keep in mind that after reviewing a transaction, an email is sent to the email address used to complete the transaction. Please check this first, especially if the email address used to create an account on Anarchy Nation is different than that used to create your account.

    If you are already a member that has contributed, you can send a private message to Anarchy Nation saying, 'Hey, I contributed using the email address youremailaddres@provider.com!' This will help us narrow down your contributions, and we will promptly add VIP status to your account.

Can I change my mind after I contribute to become VIP?
    To simplify matters, we only offer a window of time between the initial contribution and when VIP Membership is granted to reverse charges. If you change your mind in the hours before given access to the hidden sections, we will honor that request by cancelling the transaction. However, if you change your mind after given VIP access, the transaction cannot be reversed. We do not offer pro-rating (percentage of contribution per days of use) in cancellations. Please keep in mind that these contributions keep the site alive. If you are a VIP member who no longer wishes to be VIP, or wants their account deleted, we will honor these wishes.

How do I know when VIP membership is added to my account?
    If you have recently contributed using any of the available services, look for an email from the Administrators of Anarchy Nation confirming your VIP Member status. This will be sent to the email address used to complete the transaction. If that email address used differs from the one you used to sign up for Anarchy Nation, you might need to contact us.

    Keep in mind that we send out two notifications of member status change: one in the form of a private message to your user account, and another in the form of an email to the email address associated with the transaction for confirmation. If you see either of these, you should now see 'VIP Member' under your name when logged in, and viewing your Profile. If you don't, contact us!

Are you VIP? Here’s a quick and simple test to check!
    Here is a simple way for a member to check whether or not they have been granted VIP Membership status all with just one click of the mouse. First, you must make sure that you are currently logged in under your account. Second, CLICK HERE! If you see a normal discussion board for VIP Members, you are VIP. If you are prompted with a message that you cannot view a section of the site, you are not yet granted VIP status. If you have contributed, you should contact Administrators with your transaction information!

Bitcoin - Back and easier than ever!

Shopify - All Major Credit Cards Accepted!

IMPORTANT: DO NOT USE A PROXY/VPN/TOR WHEN PURCHASING!

Do not use any kind of IP masking service when purchasing through Shopify! Doing so will likely have your purchase flagged as fraudulent, the order will be cancelled, and you certainly won't get VIP Membership status. Using IP masking when browsing the Anarchy Nation forums is okay, just don't use it when buying VIP. If you want more anonymity when purchasing, pay with Bitcoin instead!
