Frequently Asked Question #21. How do I buy a Paid Account?

You can buy a Paid Account for yourself with automatic payments (automatic credit card payments according to your preferred billing cycle) or a manual payment at the LiveJournal Gift Shop. The US $19.95 a year price for Paid Accounts is only available with automatic payments.

Buying a Paid Account is a great way to show your support for LiveJournal. Paid Accounts also offer a variety of additional features not available to Basic or Plus Accounts.

Payment Methods


You can make a manual payment through the LiveJournal Shop using LJ Tokens, a major credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express), PayPal, Bitcoin or WebMoney.

Once a purchase is completed, Paid Accounts are neither transferable nor refundable.

As of October 1, 2009, LiveJournal can no longer accept payments of check, money order, or cash.
