Pay for OVPN anonymously

author David Wibergh, about Online Privacy, Products & features

At OVPN, we take the security and integrity of our customers seriously. Our VPN service does not store any logs, uses the encryption possible, and lastly fixes any DNS leaks.

These features are the reasons we can guarantee that our customers can remain completely anonymous when using OVPN. But can you pay for OVPN anonymously?

We currently accept four different payment methods: bitcoin, credit card, paypal and cash. With two of these methods, you can remain completely anonymous.

Paypal

We use Braintree in order to accept Paypal purchases.

Paypal payments are traceable by authorities. Thus, you cannot trust that you will be completely anonymous if you pay with your own Paypal account.

Bitcoin

OVPN allows payments using bitcoin. We use Coinbase](https://coinbase.com/) as our bitcoin payment provider in order to ensure great security.

It takes roughly 30 to 40 minutes for a bitcoin payment to be verified. Once the payment has been verified, your subscription is activated automatically.

By paying with bitcoin, you remain completely anonymous even throughout the payment process.

Credit Card

We use Braintree as our credit card payment processor. Braintree is PCI DSS certified, meaning your credit card information will be safely stored with them.

Credit card payments are traceable by authorities. Thus, you cannot trust that you will be completely anonymous if you pay with your own credit card.

Cash

In Sweden, there are two VPN providers that allow cash payments: OVPN and Mullvad.

Cash payments require you to put cash in an envelope along with a note stating your username. You will then send this envelope to our address.

Once we receive the envelope, we will add the subscription you’ve bought to your account. As it takes roughly 2 to 3 days for the envelope to arrive, it means your subscription won’t be active directly.

By using cash payments, you remain completely anonymous in the payment process.

Conclusion

When you are connected to OVPN, you can be sure that you are anonymous and that no logs of your activity are kept or stored.

OVPN also allows two different payment methods that offer absolute anonymity in the payment process.
