To summarize: An insider is someone who purchases memberships from us to support our creations. Through a paid membership, Insiders directly interact with us as creators to provide support, and through our platform have the opportunity to engage with a greater community of Insiders and us as creators.
As an Insider, you’re joining our website to be part of an exciting movement to support us as a creator while you get special benefits, which may include access to our merchandise (when offered), exclusivity, and engaging experiences with us as the creator and the Insider community. In exchange, you pay us for membership programs, on a subscription basis, for the foregoing access and support.
The timing and amount of each membership subscription depends on the type of membership agreement you enter into. You can see the details as you join, as well as in the receipt sent to you after your successful payment. You can view all your active membership subscriptions and billing history on your membership page at https://www.simplyvanished.com/account/my-subscriptions
To become an Insider, simply create an account, add your preferred payment method, and join a membership program to start supporting us as a creator!
We offer monthly subscriptions where you pay per month. You may cancel your membership payments at any time. Terminating or lowering the tier support of membership will go into effect in the subsequent (not current) payment term.
You may lose access to the special benefits if you cancel your membership subscription, your payment method fails, we ban you from our website, or we choose to remove them.
If you are located in the jurisdiction in which our payment providers are required to charge and collect tax (e.g. VAT or, sales tax), then this tax is added to the total charge. Except in limited circumstances, this tax is shown when you set up the initial membership subscription. Our payment providers remit all tax collected to the applicable taxing authority. As tax is largely dependent on your location, you are responsible for keeping your address complete and up to date.
Depending on your location, some banks may charge you a foreign transaction fee for your membership subscription. We do not control this charge, but it is typically around 3% . Please contact your bank for more information.
