Dating Sites That Don’t Need Credit Cards
Dating sites that don’t need credit cards. Do they exist? And why would you want to use them?
Here’s what you need to know about using online dating without a credit card.
Hiding Your Tracks
I’m not going to be a moral judge on you for wanting to hide your tracks online.
If you use a credit card to sign up to a dating site then there’s always a chance that a tell tale sign will appear on your credit card statement.
If you’re in a relationship and want to use a flirting site or something then you need to avoid any chance of being caught.
Some websites will put an innocuous entry on your credit card bill, like DBX Services Ltd. However, a suspicious partner can simply Google this and sometimes they’ll be able to find out what the entry is relating to.
Stopping paper based credit card billing can sometimes help, but it’s only covering your tracks to a certain extent.
Use Other Payment Methods
One way of avoiding credit card use (at least, directly) is to use another method of paying for a dating site membership.
Many sites allow you to pay for membership with virtual money systems. PayPal is widely accepted, and sites like Blossoms accept PayPal.
PayPal can make it easier for you to cover your tracks. It’s generally safer to cover your tracks if your partner doesn’t know about your PayPal account. And make sure you have some money in your account and don’t end up having to use your Credit or Debit Card to pay the PayPal invoice.
A few sites use less well known methods of paying for membership subscriptions. Just be careful of other methods. It can be quite hard to get a refund if you’ve accidentally signed up to a scam website.
I’ll also point out a big warning – sites that don’t take credit cards are to be regarded with suspicion. If a credit card company won’t provide merchant services to a site, then that’s a huge red flag. Proceed with caution with such sites.
Free Dating Sites
Free dating sites don’t require any methods of payment, so this is another option.
Just be careful as many sites claim to be free, but they’re not.
The downside to these sites is that they’re full of scammers and frauds. Love cheats like free dating sites because they don’t need a credit card to use them. So take great care on these sites, as they’re generally not such great places to find marriage minded partners (if that’s what you’re seeking).
So as you can see, you don’t always need a credit card to be able to use a dating site. Just be aware that sites that don’t take credit cards can sometimes be shady outfits. And alternatives like free dating sites have pitfalls as well.
