    This strategy also works with a LOT of other platforms.

    As you may know, Ahrefs is $179/month for the Standard membership. The 7-day trial is $7.

    So you're broke, and you get the trial, and you see the power of Ahrefs, then your trial runs out, and you're back to square one, because you can't afford a subscription like that.

    Using VCCs or prepaid cards is usually not an option for Ahrefs and other high-value SaaS. They understand that if they allow these cards, people will abuse them.

    But PayPal is harder to control. This works for all platforms that accept PayPal and offer free trials.

    Here's what you do:

    First, use your debit card / credit card / PayPal to get a week on each of them. If you have a debit card and a PayPal account (most people do), that's two weeks for you.

    From there, we are going to make use of PayPal's option to attach up to seven email accounts to a single PayPal account. These six new emails we attach will let us to get an additional 6 weeks for $7/week.

    Instructions: https://www.paypal.com/ms/smarthelp...itional-email-addresses-to-my-account-faq1686

    When you are signing up, use MultiLoginApp and a proxy if you're paranoid. But I found this didn't matter.

    When you go to pay, select PayPal. When you are logging into PayPal, use one of the new email addresses you attached to the account. Your password will be the same. You MUST login using one of the new email addresses you attached to the account or it won't work.

    And that's pretty much it. Ahrefs will see it as a new PayPal account and will allow you to start the trial. Easy.

    There is a way to detect this, and i hope they wont read this and apply additional ID check when payment is done.

    Anyway, this is a really nice share.

    The trial allows them to get some money at least.

    Please move to Jr. VIP

    I'm not sure that it is possible to patch due to the constraints of PayPal's API. Surely they would have done it by now; attaching new emails to your PayPal is not some crazy secret. This is why a lot of providers do not accept PayPal for free trials, I think.

    Requesting it be moved back because most of the people who cannot afford Ahrefs are probably normal members.

    Woah I knew about multiple paypal emails, but never thought of using it to game trial accounts. Awesome share dude. @MisterF did the right thing by moving it to Jr. VIP section. It shouldn't take them much time to patch this, if they get the other details of the buyer.

    I think they can patch this using the buyer name + billing address. Those two piece of info should be available to the seller via api afaik. :)

    You could probably do this forever. Those 7 emails that PayPal has can be changed.
