What is "Pay by Zone"?
Free to Play Players can purchase different zones of the Spiral with the In-Game currency called Crowns.
When you approach a street or zone you cannot access as a Free to Play player, you will be asked if you want to enter this Premium Zone. You can purchase the Premium Zone with Crowns.

What is a Membership?
Free to Play players can upgrade to a Membership, which gives the player access to all zones of Wizard101, for the duration of the Membership. Memberships can be month to month, or you can purchase several months at a time for a discounted price. Membership automatically renew, and you will see a charge from KingsIsle Entertainment on your credit card statement.
