Subscription Members

Paying by Subscription is the easiest way to pay and easiest for i3 to process, which as an all-volunteer organization is an important consideration.


Automatic Subscription

  • to pay automatically every month:
    • go to the website's membership page at https://www.i3detroit.org/membership/
    • Scroll most of the way down and click on "Set Up Automatic Payments
    • Follow the prompts to pay with either PayPal or Amazon
      • Note: PayPal is a better to use, but we are keeping Amazon for now because some people asked for it.

To Pay-As-You-Go

To pay online manually EVERY MONTH

THIS IS NOT RECOMMENDED! IT IS WAY TOO EASY TO FORGET YOUR DUES AND GET YOUR KEY SHUT OFF! USE THIS METHOD AT YOUR OWN RISK...

  • Go to the Membership page (https://www.i3detroit.org/membership/).
  • click the "Pay One Month" button.
  • Follow the checkout process.
    • Note: PayPal is preferred. Please use it if you can. Amazon is available by member request, but is much less friendly and has higher fees.

To pay online manually every YEAR

There is currently no way to do yearly subscriptions. Please put a reminder on your calendar to renew next year!

  • Go to the Membership page (https://www.i3detroit.org/membership/).
  • click the "Pay One Year" button.
  • Follow the checkout process.
    • Note: PayPal is preferred. Please use it if you can. Amazon is available by member request, but is much less friendly and has higher fees.


To pay by cash/check

This works best for yearly dues. Monthly cash and checks create extra work. Please use sparingly.

  • Place the funds in an envelope (found next to the black box near the front door).
  • Write your name and amount on the line marked "Dues".
  • Put envelope in the black box.
    • It's a good idea to email Treasurer to let them know that you paid, so there is an online record of when you did.

FAQ

  • Q: I joined on March 16th and paid $49. When will I next get billed?
    • A: May 1. We don't do fractional months. New members get billed on 1st of next month. So you paid the April 1 bill which was for April.
  • Q: When do statements get sent out?
    • A: NEVER. They don't get sent out. You can review your account anytime online in the CRM. All new members should have CRM passwords. Contact membership@i3detroit.org if you do not.


  • Q: How do I get on Hiatus?
    • A: Hiatus is for people who are going to be out of town, or not coming to the site for months at a time, like summer vacation for 3 months, or going back to school out of town for 9 months, or whatever. You get on HIATUS by emailing membership@i3detroit.org or treasurer@i3detroit.org BEFORE you leave. Your storage must be cleared and you must return your key. Your dues are not charged for the months you register to be on Hiatus. To become ACTIVE again, same process. You MUST send an email, we do not monitor key swipes at the door.
