Upgrading and gifts
Please answer LibraryThing related questions here (and on the other Help and FAQ pages). To ASK questions, however, please use Talk.
 What are the benefits of upgrading?
A basic unpaid account is limited to 200 books in your library. There is no limit on the library size for a paid account.
 How do I upgrade my account to a paid membership?
On your profile page, click Upgrade to a paid account. You can choose either a lifetime membership (good forever and ever!) or an annual one, which is good for one year. After that year, your books and account remain, but you won't be able to add any more books without renewing.
 How do I give someone a gift membership?
 What payment options do you offer?
We use PayPal to process our payments. PayPal also offers the option of paying with a credit card even if you don't have a PayPal account. If you'd rather not use PayPal, you can also send us a check or money order.
 I paid with Paypal but my account still says free! Help?
If your account doesn't upgrade immediately after a Paypal payment, email email@example.com
If it says paid/pending you can already add more than 200 books while you wait.
