We have now enabled membership upgrade options for our InvestChat members. Basic forum access is free and will remain so, but we are introducing a new premium "Community" membership level which offers some additional features and benefits above and beyond the standard free membership. It also helps to cover the costs of operating the site. The main feature is the option to hide all advertising from the site - if you'd prefer an ad-free experience, our community membership option is perfect for you. We also have a "Business" membership level for service and product providers who are able to promote their business in certain parts of the site. This includes the ability to show a commercial signature on their posts and optionally use a commercial username and/or avatar. Full pricing details can be found on our pricing page. To upgrade your account, please visit the account upgrades page to pay online using PayPal, or if you would like to pay annually, we can send you an invoice to pay by direct credit or credit card. Business members should also read our Business Members Guide to help them get the most out of their membership.
