You can purchase upgrades in Hungry For Hits from the “Upgrades” 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 cryptocurrency through CoinPayments.
Blue SolidTrustPay button:
Pay through your SolidTrustPay account. The account will be upgraded immediately if you use a SolidTrustPay balance. If you use a Bitcoin transfer for your purchase, the upgrade have to be manually added. Please send a Support ticket with your username and what you purchased if you use Bitcoin (or use the white Bitcoin buy button which is automatic).
White Bitcoin button, CoinPayments:
Fill in your name and email address, then select Bitcoin or any of the cryptocurrencies as your payment method. Continue by clicking “Complete Checkout”. You will get information on how much to send and where. Your account will be updated as soon as the transaction has been confirmed twice, usually within 5 to 45 minutes.
Blue TransferWise button:
Pay with a bank transfer or your TransferWise balance. The account will be upgraded manually. Just send a Support ticket with your username, which upgrade type you want and for how many months.
Pay with your ORU funds. Include in the description your username and what you purchased. The upgrade will then be added manually.
Card payments is possible for special deals only, which runs the first week or two weeks of each month. Those special deals can be found in a green sale box on the Upgrade pages when it is active. The card deals are for 3, 6 or 12 month upgrades, as well as lifetime upgrades.
It is possible to send Bitcoin through SolidTrustPay as well, but then it won’t be automatic. Please send a Support ticket with your username and which upgrade you bought, if you use Bitcoin through SolidTrustPay. When you use Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies through CoinPayments, the upgrade is automatic and will take effect as soon as the transaction has been confirmed twice. It usually takes 5-45 minutes.
If you have enough commissions in your account, there will also be a button to upgrade with it. There is always a 20% discount if you upgrade using commissions. You get a coupon to start the upgrade when you use your commissions. You can then decide when to start the upgrade yourself. You can start it at once, or save it for up to a year.
There is always a discount when you buy an upgrade that lasts for 3 months or more.
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.
