UNDERSTANDING YOUR ONLINE COURSE MEMBERSHIP
How you are billed for your Te Wakāa Rākau online course 'auto-renew'
Once you begin the course you automatically become a member of Te Waka Rākau. Your weekly or monthly membership fee renews automatically (auto-renew) until the completion of the course or until canceled. This prevents disruption to running services.
Put simply, if you register for the online course your membership will auto-renew each week or each month until you cancel the membership.
Your membership auto-renews
The auto-renew weekly or monthly billing continues unless you sign-in and manually choose to 'toggle off' the auto-renew. If you toggle off the auto-renew, you will not be billed again and your membership will not renew at the end of the billing cycle. If you change your mind, you can toggle the auto-renew back on at any time within your membership period, to continue on with your membership billing cycle. PLEASE BE AWARE that if you choose the 'cancel my subscription' link you will immediately revoke your access to Te Waka Rākau and all supplementary material. We do not recommend that you do this.
To ensure that your membership does not lapse / Update your card details
Update your card payment details (expiry date, CCV code etc) or to add a new payment method and set it as the new default for recurring payments:
++ If your credit card is linked to your PayPal account then sign into PayPal directly to update your card details
If you wish to disable the auto renew feature / cancel the membership
1. Absolutely, just log in to your account at or email me at
2. Click on the 'subscription' tab
3. Toggle the 'Auto Renew' option to the off position and hit the 'Save changes' button
You will receive an email confirmation almost immediately. And that’s it! Your payment auto renew has now been suspended and you will not be billed again. You will continue to have full access to all the benefits of Te Waka Rākau until your membership expires. Should you change your mind, simply return the 'Auto Renew' toggle to the 'on' position.
