Paying for Flickr Pro Without a Credit Card

Tender & endangered Cow/Horse says:

Currently in India where prepaid cards aren’t available. I’ve PayPal and Google Pay. Yet the Pro sign up window ‘Other Payment Methods’ is greyed out. A representative has outlined some method via Google Play/ Flickr app (which I’ve downloaded now) ... but I still get the greyed out link mentioned above(!). Clear alternate payment methods- anyone?
I’d regret having to leave Flickr- especially for a reason like this.

You mention "a representative", which suggests that you've already been in contact with Flickr staff via email. That's the only way to resolve payment-related issues.

The link to contact staff by email (in case I've misinterpreted your comment) is: help.flickr.com/contact

Unfortunately I recently tried to contact Flickr about a similar issue, but I never had a reply. My card has expired and I want to use paypal as my preferred , but no option is available. I guess Flickr is happy to wave goodbye to long term customers.

As mentioned, we ask that members contact us directly here if there are any billing questions. I see Marc from our Support team is in contact with you and he will be able to assist you further.



Das Boot 160:

I do see where you have contacted us on 8/5/21, Steven from Support reached out and the email bounced. I will respond to your contact as well, please let me know if you do not receive the email.

If you have a friend nearby who does have a credit card, you can have that person (open a free flickr account if necessary and) give you a pro subscription.
You can then reimburse them.

Before I got a PayPal account, and neither did I have acredit card, I got my pro as Viejito describes.

(By the looks of it, I also shall have to take that road again, when my Pro runs out, January '23..., still no credit card and PayPal trashed by Flickr...)

I also use PayPal for all my online purchases, and I'm very surprised that I won't be able to use it here anymore... surprised and angry, actually.

Do you have a Flickr account to be able to Give Pro to a Flickr member, or can anybody give it even if they haven't a Flickr account themselves?
I'm asking this on behalf of a Contact of mine who tried to renew his Pro membership but it wouldn't accept his credit card, which was valid but was declined for some reason. He lives in Mexico.

(Sorry, I know this isn't PayPal related and is off-topic but I came across your very informative comment above when looking for help for him here in the Help Forum).

I do not think so: “Give Flickr Pro” appears even to non-members, and clicking on it does open a payment window, but I would try ernstkers’s suggestion first, if I were your contact.

What about trying while using a V.P.N.? If the system thinks you are logging in from another country those options may not be grayed out. I do not know if this would work but worth a try IMHO.

Yes, that's another possibility.
