You may register Messenger Plus for AIM with either your credit card, a money order, a check or cash. There is a 1-5 day wait for all credit card transactions. A $1.00 service charge is added to the total price of all credit card registrations to cover the related processing fees. There is a 10-15 day wait on all personal checks. If you register Messenger Plus for AIM with a personal check, a registration number will not be issued until the personal check has cleared the bank. All registrations with money orders and cash are sent the same day they are received.
RETURN CHECK/CHARGEBACK POLICY:
All returned checks are subject to a fee of $30.00 plus the original amount of the check. All chargebacks from credit card companies over disputed charges for the registration fee of our products are subject to a $50.00 fee plus the cost of the original charge.

Registrations numbers are nontransferable between AOL accounts and other programs offered by TPA Software. In the events of a canceled or terminated AOL account, TPA Software will reissue a new registration number for a new account one time only after confirmation that the first account has been closed or terminated. In the event a second AOL account is canceled or terminated, re-registration of the program will be necessary.
Users who need registration numbers for more than one ACTIVE AOL account must pay for and get a registration number for each separate AOL account. This includes "spin off" accounts using AOL`s "Create a New Account for a Screen Name" feature.
Please be aware that once a registration number has been issued, there is no way for TPA Software to recall or rescind a registration number. Once a registration number has been issued, there is no way for TPA Software to be guaranteed that Messenger Plus for AIM has been uninstalled and is no longer being used.
