You can purchase upgrades in Hungry For Hits from the “Upgrades: Buy Once” page or the “Upgrades: Subscriptions” page under the Upgrade menu. For the Buy once upgrades, you can use Paypal, Cryptocurrency or Commissions. A button to upgrade with Commissions will only appear when you have enough in your account. For the Subscriptions, you can use you card.
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.
On the “Upgrades: Subscriptions” page, you can use your card to start a subscription for an upgrade. Checkout is handled safely and securely through Stripe. We can not see your card info, nor do we store it. To cancel your upgrade, go to the “Manage Subscriptions” page under the Upgrade menu and end it there. You can also send a support ticket, and the site administrator will cancel it.
On the “Upgrades: Buy Once” page, the upgrades are one time purchases, not subscriptions. There will be no recurring payments, no matter if you use Paypal, Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies, or Commissions. However, should you miss out on extra prizes or commissions because you forgot to purchase an upgrade, the extra prizes or commissions will not be added to your account retroactively.
When clicking the yellow buy button on the “Upgrades, Buy Once” page, you can chose to pay with Paypal or with a variety of cryptocurrencies. The first page that opens when you click the yellow button looks like this. Fill in the 3 areas that are marked with red in the picture below.
- First name, Last name and email address on the left side of the page. This is to send you status and email confirmation of the purchase. It will not result in any spam or newsletters.
- Chose Paypal towards the bottom of the right side of the page.
- Click the green “Complete Checkout” button at the bottom of the right side of the page.
- Once you click “Complete Checkout”, you are taken to the regular Paypal checkout page. Log in and pay as usual.
It may take a few minutes before the transaction has been verified, and the upgrade will start automatically as soon as it is completed. It usually takes 1-5 minutes with Paypal, and 5 to 45 minutes if you use Bitcoin (or other cryptocurrencies, because they need to get confirmed as it sends).
If you already have the surf window open when you buy 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 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.
