Due to the changing nature of the online world, we are taking the opportunity to make some important changes to the functionality of www.ropelab.com.au.  This will affect all current and future RopeLab Online Members.  We feel that these changes will help to simplify the management and use of the website for all of us.  Please read through the changes and email us with any questions or comments.  As of 6th May, 2019:

  • New RopeLab Online Members may choose to purchase a 1 year membership for $60AUD, a 3 year membership for $165AUD, or a 5 year membership for $250AUD.
  • These memberships will not be automatically renewing.
  • These purchases will be made by credit card on the RopeLab website.
  • We will continue to email each member prior to their membership expiring.

What happens for existing RopeLab Online Members?

  • Existing RopeLab Online Members will continue to have access to the Member Content. 
  • Existing usernames and passwords will remain unchanged.
  • All existing RopeLab Online Membership processed through PayPal will fail at the next renewal and there will be no further payments processed this way.  
  • Those who would like to continue their access after their renewal has failed will need to purchase a new membership on the website.
  • We will continue to email each member prior to their membership expiring.

To thank you for your support:

  • Those members that have been continuous RopeLab Online Members since prior to May 2015 will be granted a free 1 year membership. 
  • Note that we will no longer be offering a 10% discount to members for RopeLab Workshops. However, those who attend a RopeLab Workshop will be granted free access to RopeLab Online Member Content for 6 months. 

What do you need to do?

  • If you are an existing member, you do not need to do anything.  When your membership comes up for renewal, you will need to purchase a new membership to continue to access the content.  It is a good idea to log on and ensure your email address is up to date.
  • If you are thinking about becoming a member, you may sign up now using the existing PayPal system.  This will fail at renewal so will only last for 1 year. Alternatively, you may wait for the new system in May, and purchase a membership via credit card on the website. 

We apologise for any inconvenience caused, and hope that the new system will be simpler for all.  Please note that there may be a couple of days where membership purchases are offline until we get the new system fine tuned. 

Please don’t hesitate to email Sarah directly at sarah@ropelab.com.au with any questions or comments.  She can usually check your membership status or fix problems quickly.

Thank you all for your interest and support.  We are looking forward to a simpler and more effective website.
