    After receiving your member registration, we will process your membership and prepare your custom USPA ID for you and send it via email or ship it to you based upon your initial selection. 

  4. Start Building Your Profile Page

    You can add things such as:

    • Contact Information (address, phone, email) etc.
    • Your own website
    • Facebook Page
    • Twitter Page
    • Instagram Page
    • YouTube Channels
    • Linkedin Profiles
    • Business/Company Name & Address
    • Geographic Location
    Building a proper profile page can be extremely beneficial to you. You can add as much information as you would like or you can also choose to keep certain information private. If you would like others to find you either for hire or for freelance/contract work, having a rich profile page can make all the difference.
For email/digital delivery, orders will be (processed) within 24 hours with the exception of orders placed between Friday after 5PM EST and 10AM Sunday EST. When choosing expedited shipping, please take into consideration that there will be (one day that will account for processing time). For example, if you choose 2nd day shipping it will take 3 days for your package to arrive. Same exception will apply if there is a 2nd day order placed on Friday, there will be 2 additional days due to USPS standard hours of operation of Monday through Saturday. 
Depending upon membership choice, you will be able to access different areas of the website. If you have a Pro Membership you will have the option to maintain your own column if you choose as well as other Pro member features. All members will be able to customize their profile, add various information (personal website info, profile photo, email etc). All members will be added to the USPA database for ID and credential verification.
While the registration process can be done over time, it is best to complete all of the steps all together. 
There are additional circumstances that may contribute to longer processing times: PayPal non verified address, eCheck Payments, First time PayPal users, Phone Orders, not completing all fields in the membership application etc. In some instances PayPal will hold funds until information is confirmed. These instances are rare and should not add any additional time to processing your order.
