Activating an Account

The "Activate Account" page offers several options.  You will only see the ones that apply to you.

  • Select Account - This is useful when a broker is paying for several of his clients.  The default value is normally correct.
  • Automatic Payments - This is the preferred way to pay for your account.  Start using the software immediately this way.  Once you sign up, you don't have to do anything until you're ready to cancel.

Automatic Payments

We use PayPal to process your order.  PayPal is a secure method to pay for goods and services online using your credit card.  PayPal is used by many online businesses and millions of online shoppers daily.

We chose PayPal to ensure our customers the highest level of security for their online transactions.  PayPal guarantees the security of all transactions.  Trade Ideas LLC does not have access to your credit card number.

Initial Signup

When you select the automatic payments option, we will show you a summary of your choices.  Hit the Continue button if these options are correct.

At this time you should be at the PayPal secure server.  To verify this, look for the address at the top of your browser window.  It should start with "", as shown above.  The status bar at the bottom of your browser should have a picture of a lock, as shown below.  Your browser might not look identical to these pictures.

The top of the web page will contain details about the transaction, including the price of the subscription and the schedule for future payments.  The bottom of the page will ask questions about how you intend to pay for the subscription.  If this is the first time you have used PayPal, the page will ask you for your credit card number, and will ask for other personal information.  If you have used PayPal before, the page will prompt you for your PayPal password.

Answer the questions on the screen.  You may see two or more pages from PayPal, depending on the options you have chosen.  After you have finished entering all payment information, you will be returned to the Trade-Ideas website.  You will recognize the website by the Trade-Ideas logo at the top, as shown below.
