Frequently Asked Questions

How to manage my Oakville News account?

The round Oakville News icon will always appear in the bottom right of the website on your screen. Simply click the icon to access your account.

Why is Oakville News doing this?

Oakville News wants to protect your information, and the only way we can do that is for you to create a password to access your account.

Do I need to add credit card information?

No, you do not need to add your credit card information.

What happens once I log in?

You can access Oakville News but occasionally see a pop-up requesting a donation. For readers wishing to make a one-time donation, they will not see a request for a donation for a year, or if they are contributing monthly, they will only see a request if their credit card information expires.

Why do I see an adblocker message requesting funds to access Oakville News?

Adblockers allow readers to browse the internet without seeing any advertising. However, we need to pay our staff and operating expenses, so if a reader uses adblocking software, Oakville News cannot create revenue from advertising.

Why are you requesting donations? I see lots of advertising on the site.

We aim to provide news to all regardless of a person’s ability to pay. Currently, our only source of revenue is through advertising sales. Unfortunately, it isn’t enough. Most advertising readers see Google generates, which pays about 10 cents on the dollar. To maintain the level of reporting, we need the financial support of our readers to pay for writers and operating expenses. Advertising revenue covers just 1/3 of what is required. We hope our readers who can contribute do, so those who can’t can keep reading Oakville News.
