Active Worlds Advanced mode

The "Register" button is logically used to register yourself as citizen. You will have the choice between a subscription per month or per year. The yearly subscription is less expensive and, in conterary to the monthly subscription, to cancel your subscription you simply don't renew your payment. Indeed, the monthly subscription will charge you automatically each month.
Eventhough payments per cheque are possible, the delay can be very long when made from outside the United states.
If you are within the Euro zone, it is more interresting to purchase your citizen account either by creditcard or cheque from this website, especially because often we apply promotional reductions.
Indeed, lots of Europeans forget that to the Active Worlds prices, displayed in Americain dollars, banks will apply exchange and bankcommisions. Sometimes these can be relatively high.
We advise to consult our section "Security" to engage yourself without risks.
