Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I support lush?
Lush stories is a privately owned site, run by volunteers. Hosting the stories, images, chat rooms and videos, for hundreds of thousands of members, and millions of monthly surfers adds up to a lot of bandwidth costs.
All revenue is ploughed back into the site, so we can add new features, upgrade our hardware, and keep improving the user experience.
We actively support our authors. We edit, and help them publish their work, both on lushstories.com, and via the major online retailers. This editing time is given freely.
What's in it for me?
Along with the great features above, mostly it's about the kudos and pleasure associated with knowing you're supporting a wonderful, thriving literary adult community. Plus you get a badge that everyone will be jealous of!
What will appear on my credit card statement? Will I be rebilled?
You will be discreetly billed through our payment provider, "IBILLCS.NET"
We do not rebill. You will need to sign up again in 12 months time, should you wish to continue your support.
Can I use Paypal?
Unfortunately, Paypal do not accept any kind of payments on sites of an adult nature.
Can I gift someone Gold membership?
Sure! What a lovely gesture! When making payment, please put the member name of the person you are gifting membership to, in the member name field, and your member name in the from field.
