Q: How do I cancel the auto-renewal payment
If you have a subscription directly with VPchat,
you can go to http://reg.vpchat.com/VP/account
to cancel it. If you have a PayPal subscription, you need to go to
www.paypal.com and cancel it there.
Q: Why did my credit card payment fail?
Unfortunately, the bank doesn't usuallygive us
information about why payments fail. Make sure your card information is
current, especially the expiration date. You can log into your account
to change your payment information.
Q: I paid via PayPal and the payment was accepted
by your company. Why can't I get into chat yet?
If the email address you used with PayPal doesn't
match the address you use at VPchat, we might not have been able to find
your account. Send your PayPal receipt to email@example.com
Q: I paid via eCheck and my bank has already
taken the money out of my account. Why can't I get into chat yet?
EChecks take up to 7 days to process. Once your
bank takes the money from you account, the money travels through the FDIC
before it arrives at our bank. We apologize for the inconvenience. Contact
firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Q: How do I cancel my PayPal subscription?
You have a PayPal subscription. You can log onto
your account at www.paypal.com to cancel it.
Q: I set up an account and paid with an eCheck,
why can't I chat?
Because check fraud has become such a problem,
we have been forced to put a hold on all new accounts that are paid by
eCheck until we know that the check will clear. This normally takes 4-6
business days. In most cases, your eCheck will clear your bank before
our bank knows about it.
Q: How do I upgrade my account?
You can upgrade your account by going to http://reg.vpchat.com/VP/changeSubscription.

Q: I have a name on someone elses account.
Can I get my own account with this name?
You can and it's really simple. Just go to http://reg.vpchat.com/VP/new,
and use your current name to sign up for a new account. You'll be asked
for your password. Provide it, go through the payment process, and your
nickname will be the owner of your new account.
Q: My account expired, and I'd like
to turn it back on.
Even though you can't log in to chat, you can still
log into your account at http://reg.vpchat.com/VP/account
and make a payment to reactivate your account.
Q: Why do you need my ID to cash an eCheck?
Our bank requires an extra form of ID when cashing
a check. Typically this is your driver's license number. If you do not
have a driver's license, then please provide the number from some other
form of ID.
