How do I delete my account?
We don’t like to lose anyone, so before deleting your account do feel free to get in touch with us so we can perhaps help with anything that’s not quite working for you, or with something you’d like to see changed…
But, if you’re sure, to delete your account you first need to make sure your subscription (if you have one, i.e. if you’re a PRO ACTOR) has been cancelled.
(This is important – if you do not cancel your subscription you will still be charged. See here for more on this.)
Following this, click on MY PROFILE > MY ACCOUNT > DELETE ACCOUNT and follow the instructions there.
Cancelling your Subscription
You can cancel your subscription to enCAST at any time without penalty or charges. This explains how:
If you subscribed by PayPal
- Log into your PayPal account.
- Click the Profile icon at the top of the page, then select Profile and Settings from the drop-down menu.
- Select My Money on the left side of the page.
- In the ‘My pre-approved payments’ section, click Update.
- Select the seller whose agreement you want to cancel and click Cancel.
- Click Cancel Profile to confirm your request.
If you subscribed by Credit Card
- Please send us the most recent receipt you have or the original invoice and we will cancel it directly.
Note that your account will remain active until the period of subscription has expired.
Should I include my location when I apply to a casting?
Yes. You should tell the production where you live when you apply to a casting.
Some productions will only accept castings from locally based people, either because they don’t have the budget to bring over actors and put them up, or because they are in such a rush they need an actor already living locally.
If you don’t tell them where you live you might find you have wasted your time and theirs when they find out that you are not local. It’s best for everyone to know where you live right from the beginning.
- tell them where you live
- if you live away from the casting area, tell them you’re prepared to travel to the casting if needed (remember, you’ll have to pay for this)
- try to hide where you live or give them several different locations
