I bought a premium account before for $6/ a month I cancelled it didn't want to get auto billed each month I prefer pay as I go. The only thing I can do is premium free and it said it will automatically bill me.

You can use Paypal and only put in enough money for one month. When the auto renew tries to renew your subscription through paypal, it won't go through since your paypal account won't have enough funds.

I am not certain that will work since I believe PayPal normally requires an account to be linked to a bank account and/or credit card for backup funding.

You can mail us payments.
You can use CR Bucks to purchase a subscription.
You can purchase yourself a subscription as a gift.

Those are the three ways to currently do it.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

Must be because my paypal account was created such a long time ago. I do not have any credit, debit, or bank account information tied to my paypal. Although I have not purchased anything with Paypal in recent history. (My Paypal only contains funds from free promotions and stuff)

What would be the easiest way between those 3?
What do you mean purchase the subscription as a gift?

Do you mean make a separated account and gift it to another account ?
I don't really know how that would work but sometimes people make mistakes and gift it to another person accidentally.
I think that gift system is still very hard to proceed and sometimes it causes glitch in the server. And another way that it would make easier for all of us is just to remove that auto-renew from the entire site and rebuild the system. Not sure how Shinji is going to do this but I'm sure it is possible.I've never really used CR Bucks and I don't even know what that is but it's like another type of currency online? I've just never heard about this one. By the way, when you're talking about mailing do you mean we mail? Is it email or in real life? yeah sorry if I'm a little bit confused. I just need a clearer information on this matter.

No, because creating a secondary account is not allowed. You simply click on Gift Membership, a link which can be found at all times in at the bottom of the page in the category "Premium Membership"

Just go to the user's page, copy the name exactly and paste it? Should prevent you from making any mistakes.

The option to turn off auto-renew is a work in progress, but it will take time change. Making it happen is currently being tested by some coders.

Just read here for more info about payments:

Mail is snail mail, in other words yes real life. Not to ridicule you, but how would you send payment via email...?


Hope that cleared up everything.

This method works with Roxity, but there premium cost about 0,5$ more. And you have to transfer at roxity at least 10 $.

Nope.

You can not buy a 'gift' for yourself.
You need a second email address and then you purchase the 'gift' for the account you want to have as Premium.
