Most of the time your membership activates instantly, but it may take a bit longer depending on how it was purchased.
Here’s some helpful information on how long your membership may take to activate:
Credit Cards and Membership Cards are activated immediately
Other methods of payment may take up to 14 days to activate
For more information on how long your membership may take to activate, or if has been 14 days and your membership has not been activated, please ask an adult to contact Club Penguin’s Billing Team.
