Instructions / Help

1. The instructions following are preliminary and will change as we figure things out. This website will always be a “work in progress” so if you see instructions below which don’t reflect your experience, please let us know. As of May 22, 2015 we are implementing our new Paypal Express Checkout.
2. Just remember that this is something new and there may be a glitch or two along the way. So if you encounter ANY problems, be sure to let us know and we’ll fix it.

a. To Join, select your membership level above, click on the “select” button. This will take you to the checkout page where you will fill out the checkout form. Please set your username to your first initial and last name. Obviously we can’t make you do that, but if you do it will help us know who you are at a glance, rather than trying to search and match up your obscure user name to a real name. You can set your visible name to anything you like later in your profile.

b. After you set up your Name, username, email, then choose the radio button that corresponds to the way you wish to pay… by credit card or check. Credit card payments go through Paypal. Fill out the billing/checkout form and either click on the paypal button (if you chose pay by cc) or click on the submit button if you chose pay by check. If only the paypal button shows up, it’s ok. Just click enter and it will take you to the check confirmation page.

c. If you pay thru paypal, when you are done at paypal they will send you back to our website to complete your payment. We will send you an email with an email validation link. You will need to click on that link to validate your account. This is just a measure to discourage spamming with junk emails. We appreciate your patience with this extra step.

d. To Renew, you’ll want to be logged in. The first time you log in to the new website, your username will be your first initial and last name, all lowercase. Click on the “lost your password” link on the log in form. You’ll get a link that will let you change your password.

e. If you choose ‘Pay by Check’, after you fill out the form and click on submit or the paypal button, you’ll be taken to a confirmation page. Print two copies of that page, one for your records, the other to be mailed with your check.

Mail your check and form copy to:
Colorado Springs Astronomical Society
P.O. Box 16318
Colorado Springs, CO 80935-6318.

You will receive a welcome email from CSAS after you submit your registration form. Your application validation will take approximately 5-10 business days, from the time the application is mailed.

You may also pay with cash or check or credit card at a meeting by simply following the instructions above and instead of sending a check to the address, attend a meeting and give a copy of the form you filled out to our treasurer, along with your check or cash. In most cases Tom can also run your credit card info at a meeting. If you plan on doing this though, it would be a good idea to email Tom at: CSAS Treasurer and let him know so he can be sure to bring the cc reader or have someone else have it if he cannot make the meeting.

If you want to pay with paypal right away and for some reason the program won’t let you, you may still do so by again following the instructions above (ie, filling the form out!) and going into your own paypal account and sending the correct payment ($30 or $300) to paypal@csastro.org. In this case you don’t need to send a copy of the form to us.

Bottom line on all methods of joining: You need to actually checkout with the level you want so that you are in our system, and then make your payment.

Problems? Please contact us at: Webmaster if there are any problems with the membership forms. Thanks! We want you to get the most out your membership with CSAS ! We also want to be responsive to your needs and welcome you to the local astronomy community!
