You are not required to log in with a PayPal account if you choose the fixed-term "Individual One-year Membership". After clicking on "Check out with PayPal" you can select "Pay with Debit or Credit Card." PayPal can process Mastercard, Discover VISA and AMEX. If you would like to pay with your PayPal account, click on "Log into PayPal".
For "Auto-Renewing Subscription" you must log in with a PayPal account. We will be switching to Stripe payment processing soon, so there will not be a problem with requiring PayPal login to select Auto-Renewing.
With your membership submission, you will automatically be subscribed to the following email lists. You may unsubscribe or resubscribe at any time:
- MAS Members Group Discussion List: A private email list of MAS members for two-way discussion of songwriting activities. Powered by Google Groups. Please add firstname.lastname@example.org to your email contacts list.
- MAS Member News and Songwriting Activities Lists: One of our Mailchimp newsletters provides members and non-members with a monthly preview of MAS events. A second MailChimp newsletter goes out monthly just to members giving them reminders and access to activities such as Zoom sessions for song reviews. Every Mailchimp newsletter has a link in the footer of the email to allow you to change your subscription preferences.
After you log in, you will be able to complete your Artist Profile page. Your profile can include a biography, profile photo and links to your music websites and social media pages. You will also be able to embed SoundCloud playlists and YouTube or Vimeo videos.
