Hello there,

I´d like to buy an account for one year. But have no credit card.
So is there a different way like paypal or paysafe card to pay for an account?

    To Ogolar,

    Have you considered a reloadable gift card?

    What exactly do you mean with "reloadable gift card" ?

    Here in Germany are two different types of cards which you can call a "reloadable gift card"
    The one is a giftcard like, for example an amazon gift card. That would be ok, for me. But as far I know, you can just pay at amazon for example.

    The second one is a prepaid credit card. Tha´s no option because I don´t want an need a credit card. So I will not get a credit card and pay for owning a credit card every year just to get the membeship of obisidian portal.

    I believe this would be the second type you mentioned. Not a credit card that affects your credit score and you pay the debt at the end of every month. But funds tied to a re-loadable card(These are normally purchased around the holidays in the US, but are available year round). At the moment a credit card/gift card I mentioned above is the only option here at OP. And we'd love to have you attain an Ascendant membership. I can forward you the link to our payment processor Stripe for further questions if you'd like?

    Ok, that´s real sad.
    So I will not ascend.

    Maybe OP can consider to finde new ways to pay. More people in Germany an hole Europe will maybe join.
    Credit Card is not real common around in Germany. Maybe Paypal or Paysafe Card?

    You can send me a message if someday ther will be different ways to pay.

    Hello there,

    I found a friend with a Credit Card (Master Card) who was willing to pay for me. But when we entered the data, it says "The card was declined"

    What to do now???

    Hello again Ogolar. I see you are subscribed however I do not see any pending transactions. Please check your credit information again and your account balance. After you have verified that information you may need to reach out to your credit card provider for more detail on what issue you experienced. I'm here with you every step of the way if you have any questions.

    Hi, same problem here. It would be great if you could add PayPal as payment method.

    Noted. Multiple users have requested paypal and I've pushed the idea to management.
