2. Choose the desired Membership level from the options presented: Premier, Professional, Divers in Uniform, Business Member, etc. Then click the "Continue to select a payment method..." pushbutton at the bottom right of the page.

3. Payment may be via Paypal or the SingleDivers's Payment Gateway where payments via echeck or credit card are accepted. Select either method preferred and click the "Continue" pushbutton. You will be transferred to whichever secure payment website was selected.

4. Once transferred to the secure payment page of your choice you must follow ALL the prompts until either a) Paypal says your transaction is complete or b) you see an Electronic Remittance Ticket (confirmation number) if using the SD Payment Gateway. If paying via Paypal, your membership will be automatically upgraded to the level you chose. If paying via the SingleDivers's Payment Gateway there is up to a 24 hr lag as we still have to manually apply your membership upgrade to your account. (We are working to fully automate this but please bear with us as this is our preferred payment option.) Also please NOTE that if using the SD Payment Gateway you will see an Electronic Remittance Ticket AND a RED PAYMENT LINK that will return you to our website's payment gateway. This step is REQUIRED so you may enter the remittance payment information in order to complete the Membership Upgrade process.
