Netflix prices and accepted payment methods
Netflix, as you surely already know, is a video streaming service based on a library containing hundreds and hundreds of contents including movies, TV series, exclusive shows and much more. The service is available in the form of a monthly subscription without renewal constraints: this means that, if you no longer want to use them, you can stop the automatic payment at any time and resume it whenever you want, without incurring any penalty. However, keep in mind that the data of the viewing activity will be kept for the only ones 10 months following the closure of the account.
At the time of writing this guide, Netflix provides three types of subscription, which I illustrate below.
- Base - allows viewing of content on only one device at a time, in low definition. Its price is 7,99 € / month.
- Standard - allows viewing of content on two devices at the same time, with HD resolution. Its price is 11,99 € / month.
- Premium - allows viewing of content on four devices at the same time, with UltraHD resolution. Its price is 15,99 € / month.
Netflix accepts several payment methods: in addition to the credit card (the allowed circuits are Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Postepay), it is possible to pay the monthly subscription using the PayPal account or one or more Netflix gift card. As you will soon discover, it is precisely by using these last two payment methods that you will have the possibility to subscribe to Netflix without associating any type of card.
Depending on the promotions in progress, an initial trial period of the service may be granted, of varying duration, for example 14 or 30 days.
How to make a Netflix account without a credit card
Now that you have the necessary information on the available plans and the relative prices, it is time to move on to the work and to understand, in practice, like having Netflix without a credit card. Exactly as I explained to you in the previous section of the tutorial, the service provides two excellent alternatives to adding a card: the association of a PayPal account or top up your personal wallet via gift card Netflix. Here is all explained in detail.
PayPal is an online payment system that can be used in conjunction with a credit card, but also completely independent from the latter: the PayPal account, in fact, provides for the existence of a personal "wallet" on which it is possible to pay money, by reloading in fact the bill itself.
You have two ways to do this: you can do a Bank transfer to your PayPal account, using a special IBAN to proceed with the payment (provided that the current account from which the money comes has the same holder as the online account), or ask a friend / relative to top up your account, perhaps returning the sum in the form of cash.
If you don't have a PayPal account yet, you can create one for free by following the instructions I have given you in this guide; for further information on top-ups by bank transfer or third-party money transfer, I invite you to consult the specific tutorial I have dedicated to the subject.

Alternatively, you can top up a Netflix account (even during creation) using a special one wrapping paper. These gift cards, available in denominations of 15 €, 25 € e 50€, can be purchased from retailers such as Euronics, MediaWorld, Unieuro, Mondadori, GameStop and at supermarket chains Esselunga and they are very simple to use: once you have purchased the card, it is enough scratch the metal band placed on the back of the same to obtain the 11-digit PIN to be used for recharging, or take the latter from the receipt.
Once you have obtained the aforementioned code, you can go to this web page to redeem it; if necessary, the top-up code can also be used when registering for the service, thus avoiding the need to combine a credit card or PayPal account with Netflix.
