Frequently Asked Questions


1. How do I purchase a Premium Access subscription?

We have partnered with a company called Tinypass in order to provide Full Access to all of our Premium content.

To purchase, click on Subscribe and then click the link under option #2. This will open the purchase screen.

Now you can click your desired payment amount, and then you will be prompted to pay through the Tinypass secure window.

Here are the payment steps for a Credit Card account:

• Select your payment method

• Enter your email and match the security code

• Enter your payment details

• Once your payment is complete, you will then create a password for your access.

• Finally, click the “Close Window” button and you will be granted Full Access to all of our Premium content.

(Note: Unless you choose to logout, you will stay logged in for up to 30 days. For security purposes, the system will require you to sign in again at that time.)

You will receive a payment confirmation by email directly from Tinypass.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please email or call (701) 256-5311 for support.
