Let me in!

I registered on your site yesterday, and when I try and get to the MLS [merchant level salesperson] user groups, it says my membership is pending. I was wondering if I need to pay a fee to get access to those groups, or if I did something wrong.

Would you mind letting me know when you have a moment?

Thank you very much.
