Hello there! Ready to subscribe for a PRO plan or renew your subscription? Shortly, the payment methods available at the moment are Credit Card and Apple Pay. We are also working on a few others like Google Pay and Link payment.
Here is a step-by-step guide to payment options available on the FIDE Online Arena:
Note: Don’t forget to allow pop-ups in your browser if your bank requires a 2-step verification.
To pay with your credit card, you need to open chessarena.com on your computer or phone browser.
Click on your profile icon and then on your subscription plan.
If you have not subscribed for a PRO Plan yet, you'll be able to choose the subscription that suits you best: annual or monthly billing options are available.
If you are already a PRO plan subscriber but need to change your payment method, you'll see your payment methods listed at the bottom of the page. Here you can add a new card or delete the one that you no longer wish to use.
If you'd like to pay with Apple Pay, you need to follow all previously listed steps from your iPhone browser. Please note that it is not possible to manage your payment method from the FIDE Online Arena App yet.
Almost done! You'll be able to choose the Apple Pay option and get your PRO subscription in a few seconds.
All payments are processed through a secure system (Stripe or PayPal), and your personal information is kept confidential.
So why wait? Sign up on FIDE Online Arena and start playing chess today.
