CR should use Openbucks as a payment method for premium membership users. I think it's convient and help full at times, just enter a gift card from any retail store to pay your membership online. I use this a lot on Twitch.tv much better than putting your card info on the Internet even though most website are secured with your info. Please consider adding this it would tremendously help me and most users who can't use credit cards of some sort (http://www.openbucks.com)

I like this method too. However, I think it would be better if users weren't required to make additional accounts on other websites.

I wanted to post my idea in this thread but it got closed long before I thought of the idea.

In my opinion, the best solution is for Crunchyroll to distribute physical gift cards to stores. Once you buy a gift card, all you have to do is log into your CR account and redeem the code.

I have seen physical cards circulating around, but they're either for sale only online (where a user has to create an addition account on the website selling the card) or only offered as a prize in anime convention contests (and they're usually one of the more harder prizes to win).

I would also like the option of gift cards being available.
If i didn't have to use a credit card, i would have no issue doing a subscibtion, but until then i shall have to abstain.

I haven't verified it myself, but shinryou says that you can buy gift subscriptions in the CR store and then use them without being forced to keep an open credit card on your account after the purchase, either on the "purchaser" or "recipient" side. (I can absolutely understand not wanting to do so, given what's been going on.)
