How long does it take to get my Z-VIP card?

If you live in Los Angeles, and you use your credit card for your purchase, you should be getting your card in about one to two weeks, assuming there are no problems with your order (e.g. missing mailing address, bad email address).  If you used a check to make your payment, it will take an average of 5 working days extra to receive your order.

If you live in other states, or other countries, it will take longer depending on the snail mail speed. If you do not get an email from zbone.com after you have placed your order, there may be a problem with your order or email address.  Please email us with a valid email address so we can clear up any problems.

I'm already a lifetime member. Do I get the new features?

Sorry no.  But you can join the Z-NET services to get access to those new services that are provided there.  You can do so by going to zbone.net and click on "Join" after reading what is available there.

Notice that the price to join the Z-NET service plus the price of the original lifetime Z-VIP membership, is the same as the new price of the lifetime Z-VIP membership.  So you're not losing anything by joining the Z-NET service.

If you are one of the original lifetime Z-VIP members who paid full price ($60), please email me if you want to be admitted to the Z-NET services for no extra fees.

How long does the one year membership last?

Your one year membership lasts one year from the date of purchase.

Top Home


How do I get access to the Z-VIP forum only?

The only way right now is to purchase a lifetime membership.  There is no way to only get the Z-VIP forum access without the other benefits.

Top Home


How do I get access to the Z-VIP gallery only?

If you would like to access the Z-VIP gallery but don't want any other benefits, you can save a little money (compared to buying a lifetime membership online) by going here.

Top Home


I got my lifetime membership at a discount.  Can I get into the Z-VIP gallery?

Sorry no.  If you bought the lifetime membership at the full price BEFORE the Z-VIP gallery was created, email me and you will get access.  However, if you got your lifetime membership at a discount, you are not eligible.  If you would like to access the Z-VIP gallery you can do so by going here.  The price difference is the same as the full price of the lifetime membership.

I don't have a credit card. Can I use a check?

Sorry, there is no way to pay by check or money order right now.

Top Home


What kind of package will be mailed to me?

Don't worry. A plain white business envelope with no mention of zbone.com or strip clubs on the outside will be mailed to you.

Top Home


Why do I have to use this payment service?

Using this payment service is secure, convenient and free.

Top Home


I'm having trouble with your payment service.  What now?

It's possible that your credit card cannot be accepted by the service.  If you are having problems, please email us and we'll see if we can help.

How do I order more than one membership?

To order more than one membership, simply fill in the "Quantity" space in the order form.  Next, enter the names of the other individuals in the "Notes" section.

Top Home


If I order more than one membership, do the others get the same privileges?

Sorry, no. Only the person who made the order gets all the membership privileges. The others will get a Z-VIP membership card, and a request to join the Z-VIP mailing list. Specifically, the other people will not get access to the Z-VIP forum. The reason for this is because in order to be able to access the Z-VIP forum, you cannot be anonymous. Since only the person who ordered the membership revealed their identity, the others are not eligible.  However, the membership card will identify them as lifetime members, the same as the person who made the order.

Top Home


Is my name going to be on my card?

Yes. Some clubs may require that you show a picture ID and match your name with the Z-VIP card. Therefore, your name will be on the Z-VIP card so that there won't be any problems for you. However, if you specifically do NOT want your name on your card, please state this in the "Notes" area of the payment form. Please note that some participating clubs may require you to show your ID.

Top Home


I changed my mind. Can I get a refund?

Sorry, no. Like software, once you purchase the membership, there is no way of us to know where you visited, what you did or what privileges you have already used. And before you ask, no we cannot pro-rate the remaining portion of your membership because that would be an easy way for people to get a shorter period of membership than the full year. This would not be fair to the other members.

Top Home


Do you now have a copy of my credit card information?

No. You made your purchase through a secure payment service which keeps all the credit card information only on their secure server. Zbone.com does not have access to any of this information. All we have is your email address and your mailing address.

Top Home


Are you going to send me junk mail?

No. We will use your address only to send you your membership card and nothing else.  We will not sell your address to any other business or entity for any reason at any time.  If there is a problem with your order, and we cannot reach you by the email that you have provided, then we may send you a letter to your address.

Top Home


The club didn't take my card. What gives?

First, make sure the club you visited is on our list of participating clubs. If so, make sure that there are no special conditions on the privileges (e.g. day of the week, time of day).

Also, keep in mind that clubs may choose not accept the card for private parties, special events and promotions. If you still feel that there is a problem, please email us at vip@zbone.com with the name of the club, the date and time of your visit and any other information you think would help us track down your problem.

I cannot access the Z-VIP forum. What is my username and password?

When you purchased your lifetime membership, you should have received an email requesting your username. If for some reason, you did not receive this email, please email us. It is likely that the email address your provided with your order was incorrect or you have a spam blocker that is blocking email from us.

When you email us, please Include your full name as it appeared on your order, so that we know that it's really you, along with your Z-VIP card number and the approximate date of when you joined to help us find your file and follow the instructions below:

If you have already registered a handle for the bulletin board or review board, please email me your handle. If not, please register your handle at:
http://archive.zbone.com/hts/namelib.mv?action=register

After you email me your handle, I will upgrade your account so that you can access the Z-VIP forum, Z-VIP gallery and Z-VIP mail.

You will also get a separate email requesting that you join the Z-VIP newsletter list. If you wish to join, please follow the instructions in the email.

Please note that if you ordered a 1 year membership, that does not include a membership to the Z-VIP forum.

I didn't get a confirmation email from you.  What's going on?

You should have gotten a confirmation email within 48 hours of your order. If you have not gotten this email, it's likely that something is wrong. Either your email service is blocking our attempts to email you with a spam blocker, or the email that you provided with your order is wrong or has a typo.

In some cases, the email that you have provided cannot receive email for one reason or another. Please first check to make sure you can receive email, then check your spam blocker setting, then email us so that we can get in communication with you.

For detailed instructions on "whitelisting" zbone.com emails, or getting around your spam blocker, please read this document.

How do I change my Z-VIP username?

How do I get on the Z-VIP newsletter list?

When you purchase your membership, you will get an email invitation to join the Z-VIP mailing list. Please follow the instructions to join. If you did not get this email, it is likely that the email address you provided was incorrect.  If for some reason, you do not get this invitation email, please email us at vip@zbone.com.

and enter your email address and follow the instructions.

When is my favorite club going to start accepting the card?

We do have a list of clubs that we are currently contacting to try to become an affiliate of the Z-VIP program. If you have a specific club you are interested in, email it to us at vip@zbone.com and we'll let you know what the status is.

You can also help us convince them to come on board to the program by continuing to ask them if they accept the card. This may help convince the management to join the program.

Top Home


How do I know when a club has joined the program?

You can check our list of participating clubs. You will also get an email from the Z-VIP mailing list unless you have unsubscribed from it.

Top Home


Will I automatically be asked to renew my membership when it expires?

No.  Your membership privileges will automatically expire.  Please renew your membership at that time.

Top Home


I lost my card. Can I get a new one?

Sorry, no. You will have to re-join.  If you are a lifetime member, you can get a new card by going here.

Top Home


My lifetime membership card has worn out. Can I get a new one?

We suggest that you do not carry your card in your wallet to prevent the card from being worn down quickly.  If you're not careful, this is what your card will look like.

You can get a new card by going here.

I love my one year card. Can I upgrade to a lifetime membership?

Sorry, no. You must purchase the lifetime membership card at its regular price.

Top Home


Can I buy a Z-VIP membership at a strip club?

For a limited time, you can now purchase Z-VIP membership at Sam's Hofbrau in downtown Los Angeles. The club has free admission so if you park on the street, it costs you nothing to buy the card. Ask the bartender for either the 1 year card for $10 (save $5 on shipping and handling) or lifetime membership for $30. Please note that your lifetime membership does not come with any online benefits.

Top Home


I got my membership from a vendor. How do I get on the Z-VIP forum?

Sorry, but the participating strip clubs and vendors do not keep track of enough information for me to verify who has bought a Z-Z-VIP membership. Therefore, if you buy a membership at a strip club, you will not be entitled to all the benefits, including access to the Z-VIP forum, Z-VIP Gallery or Z-VIP Mail.

Top Home


I got my membership from a vendor. Can I get into the Z-VIP Gallery?

When you purchase a lifetime membership from a vendor, you do not get any of the other benefits, except for the Z-VIP membership card itself.  If you would like to access the Z-VIP gallery, you can save a little money (compared to buying another lifetime membership online) by going here.

Top Home


If I get my membership from a vendor, do I still get the free stuff you offer online?

Sorry, no.  The free "stuff" is only offered to people ordering online.
