Using the PIRC eCard System
This Help page will explain the registation process, familiarize you with the options available to you through your Member Control Panel, and show you how to send a card.
::: The Registration Process :::
HOW TO REGISTER
You will only have to do this one time ever. This is to insure that a human is registering and not a robot.
- Click the Register link in the upper right corner of the screen. When the registration form displays, fill in your email address, password, and password confirmation. Below that, you will be asked to type in the text you see in the Capatcha box (pictured below). If you cannot read the text, click the blue button where the arrow is pointing to get a new set of words. You can also click the little blue question mark for more help with Captcha.
After entering your data, click on the Register button to submit your registration information . An email will be sent to the address you entered.
Check your email for a message from PIRC eCards with the subject line Please confirm your Test eCard Registration. It may take up to several hours before it arrives. Open the message. You should see the following:
Please follow the link below to activate your account:
Click on the link. This will confirm your email and complete your registration. You may now log into the PIRC eCards site and start sending cards.
IF YOUR REGISTRATION EMAIL DOES NOT ARRIVE
- Now and then, something happens and you may not see your confirmation email. In this case, check your spam folder. If you find it there, move it to your "in" box and add firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book. This will insure that email from PIRC eCards will always go to your in box.
- If you do not find your confirmation email in your spam folder, use the contact form on this site to send an email to the administrator who will manually activate your account.
::: Logging In :::
Once your email address has been validated, you may log into the PIRC eCards site and start sending ecards to your family and friends. You may send as many as you want, as often as you want.
To log in to the site, click the Login ink in the upper right corner. When the window opens, type in the email address you used to register and your password. If you want to stay logged in for 30 days, check the box on the screen.
::: Member Control Panel Options :::
The Member Control Panel has a number of very nice options that are easy to use and will enhance your card sending experience. This tutorial will cover each option listed in your Member Control Panel.
