Subscriptions are sold by the issue not the year, month or any other time period. The basic subscription includes 8 issues of the magazine which however we do aim to deliver within each calendar year. We accept payment by U.S. check, money order or traveler's check made payable to "PinGame Journal." (See the CASH caution below). We also accept payment through the on line service PayPal (see below). We can not accept credit cards (except through PayPal) at this time.
You can subscribe to the PinGame Journal (or order a CURRENT, SAMPLE, or BACK issue) using PayPal by clicking the appropriate button below. You can also make a $5 or $10 donation to the PGJ to help cover constantly rising costs. This method will include a small service/handling fee (listed as "shipping") that we are charged by PayPal for the convenience of this online transaction. You are under no obligation to pay this fee (about $1.60 on a $34 subscription), however we would appreciate if you did, as those little amounts add up quickly!
If you opt not to have the fees added, please click HERE and make a direct payment from your PayPal account to goodstuff(at)pingamejournal(dot)com [replace (at) with @ and (dot) with .]

Make checks or money orders out to "PinGame Journal" and send, along with your name, mailing address, phone number and email address to:
31937 Olde Franklin Drive
Farmington Hills MI 48334-1731 USA
NOTE: We are very protective with personal information so please include your phone and email address as it can help us contact you if needed. Thanks.
CASH--Some, especially subscribers outside North America, choose to send U.S. currency rather than use a check or money order. That is fine and we've had only one problem with that method. But keep in mind that there is no "record" of the money sent or that we received it. If it is lost, we can not be responsible. It is important to us that everyone knows there are no guarantees. PayPal seems to be a much better alternative.
