You can purchase upgrades in Hungry For Hits either from the “Upgrade: Subscribe” page or the “Upgrade: Buy once” page under the Upgrade menu. You can also see the prices for the different upgrades there, and you get a discount if you upgrade for 3 months or more. You can purchase upgrades for 1, 3, 6 or 12 months at a time.
There are several different ways to pay for the upgrade. Upgrading is done automatically if you use a SolidTrustPay account balance or CoinPayments payment button. If you pay with card through SolidTrustPay, the upgrade takes effect when the payment has cleared, usually within 1 business day. There will also be a button to upgrade with Commissions, if you have enough funds in your account. When you use CoinPayments, the upgrade will take effect as soon as the transaction has been confirmed twice, it usually takes 5-45 minutes.
- Which upgrade type you want
- For how many months
You will get an address or a link to send it to, and you you will receive coupons for your upgrade. Each coupon equals one month upgrade, and you will still get a discount when you buy 3 or more. You can chose to use them all at once for a consistent upgrade, or spread them out over time.
When your upgrade runs out, your account status will go back to free member, and all benefits of being upgraded will be removed. You can see when your upgrade expires on your Account Settings page.
Should you miss out on extra prizes or commissions because you forgot to purchase or activate an upgrade, the extra prizes or commissions will not be added to your account retroactively.
If you already have the surf window open when you buy or activate an upgrade or a short account boost, you have to refresh your surf window (or go back to home page and restart surf) for the timer to change.
If you have an upgrade and buy or activate another one before your previous one runs out, the time will be added on top of the time you have left of your existing upgrade so that no time is lost.
When you buy an upgrade with commissions, you get a 20% discount. You have to start the upgrade yourself, because you get a coupon when you buy the upgrade. You can select to start it at once, or save it for up to a year.
