I received this question:

Is there still a way to pay $250 for the year or is a monthly payment the only option now?

Here is my reply:

I used to allow people to set up annual payments with a discount of $50 for those who did not want me to grade their work ($250), and $100 for those who did need their work graded ($500).  No longer.  

Last year, when I set up recurring payments on my site, the system required that I set payments up to automatically renew every year.  

This was designed to make things easier on subscribers. You only have to subscribe once.  Then, my site renews automatically for you.  No new registration, new passwords, new hassles, etc.  🙂

But, for both sides, the annual renewal turned out to be a bad idea.  I ended up bogged down in refunds and paperwork.  

I have discontinued the annual rate and left only the monthly rate.  So far, this is working much, much better for everyone.  You may find this helpful: https://dwanethomas.com/before-you-cancel/
