Payment Methods

WaniKani is a paid service after level 3. If you want to continue, you need to find a payment method that works for you!

What type of payment can I use?

WaniKani accepts most major credit cards. These ones:

Accepted card types: AMEX, Diners Club, Discover, JCB, MasterCard, Visa

Can I use other currencies?

Yup! If you’re from outside the United States, the currency conversion will be handled by your bank or card provider. Be aware that some banks may charge you additional fees for the currency conversion (it’s not us, promise).

What about pre-paid cards?

Maybe. If you’re planning to use a prepaid/gift card make sure that 1) it has enough money on it, and 2) that you can use it both online and for recurring charges. Some prepaid cards require activation before they can be used online or for subscriptions. Make sure to check the information include on the back of the card first.

Some prepaid cards really don’t like being used online, and some do. It’s a toss up whether they’ll work, but you can always try.

What other payment methods are available to use?

Aside from credit/debit card, we accept Apple Pay, Google Pay, or Link. These options are only available in certain regions, so click on the links to see if your country participates.

Though I heard a rumor Koichi is willing to talk to people with Dogecoin. Just a rumor though, probably unfounded.
