I would like to create a Netflix account, but I do not like ot use my VISA Card for online payments. Can I use my PayPal account to pay for a future Netflix subscription?
The official website of Netflix gives the following information on the matter:
[stextbox id=”info”]Netflix accepts Paypal as a payment method as long as it is available in your region. If you do not see PayPal as an option when signing up or when you are updating your payment method, we are not available in your region at this time. Feel free to check back periodically to see if it becomes available in your region.[/stextbox]
Based on our experience so far what we can say is that if you want to get a UK Netflix account and register there, then you can not pay with PayPal. However, if you want to get a Netflix account in the USA, then you can pay for your subscription using PayPal. So, if you really want to use PayPal, but you currently reside outside the USA you can use a VPN provider to get a US IP address, and once you are actually using your VPN subscription and have a US IP address, then you visit Netflix.com and sign up for a US account, and you arrange with the payment using PayPal. In that way you can pay for your Netflix subscription using PayPal. The recommended VPN provider for these purposes is PureVPN.
Later you can use your VPN subscription to get an IP address in for example the UK, and if you use your UK IP and visit Netflix.com you will be able to watch the UK Netflix, even if you have your original Netflix subscrition in the United States. Sounds good?
If you have further insight in whether you can pay with PayPal for Netflix in nations such as Canada, Netherlands, Germany, Austria and so on, please write a comment!
