Frequently Asked Questions
Why do you have a members-only area?
I wanted an area where members of our community could explore information with people of like minds without feeling inhibited. This is also the most technically advanced area of my site, which includes secure servers, radio programs, chat rooms, video files and more.

We have gone to great expense and time to put this entire site together and to create a community where all aspects of our lives can be explored. I have taken no money from this site, but we do have scribes and technical people that do need to be paid for the services they provide.
What are your membership fees?
$9.99 for a monthly members; $99.90 for an annual membership. We also offer discount rates to seniors (over the age of 55), students and membership overseas of $5.49 monthly, $54.90 annual.

Are credit card transactions secure on ShirleyMacLaine.com?
Yes. They are as secure as technology will allow. We have taken every precaution available. However, if you prefer, you may join our member's area by sending a money order or your credit card number through the mail.
