We've  a few different memebership available depending on when you signed up and activated with 48 however irrespetive of what memebership you have, how you purchase will be same for everyone. 


How to buy membership.

  3. If you have an active membership and want to renew this again then select "Buy next membership" 
  4. If your current membership has expired  then chose from the available options displayed. 
  5. Once you've selected the membership you want, a new screen will display your purchase summary.  
  6. You'll have the option to pay from your registered card, your available credit balance or you can add a new payment card.


Why not turn on auto renew on your account?

Auto renew allows you to set up a monthly recurring payment to renew your membership automatically. As we're a prepay service you'll need to purchase your membership monthly to continue to receive the allowance you want. With auto renew it takes the manual effort out off buying membership as we’ll auto debit your registered payment card


This means more free time for you and your never without an active membership 😉. Once you select the membership you want to buy then tick the "auto renew" option so it will automatically renew on the same day each month without the need for you to log in or overthink things.
