    Hi guys, I’ve been reading SLR lounge for about a couple years now and am already subscribed to the emails. When I enter myself it says I’m already subscribed, so how do I acquire the ebook download via this option?

    Tried the “pay with a share” option, made sure to set my Facebook post as public, I verified that it did indeed post, but the share app can’t seem to verify so I can’t get the download :( I signed up for the newsletter a long time ago so that option doesn’t work either to get the guide.
