SiteGround Payment Methods
- Credit Card
- Pay Pal (Only Available For Renewal)
Please note that the available payment methods may change depending on your region.
SiteGround is currently only offering Credit Card as a payment option on their sales page.
???? Credit Card Types Accepted:
- American Express (Amex)
- Discover Card
Using your credit card for purchasing hosting is the best option because you will not have to manually renew your plan every time.
With a debit card, auto-renewal isn’t possible.
What if you don’t have a credit card and want to use any different source.
If you wanna make a payment by a different source, for example, Paypal or debit card, you have to contact their sale support.
However, contacting their customer support without purchasing their plan is almost impossible. They don’t allow live chat or any kind of support for people who are not part of their family. And, that is a negative point about SiteGround.
You have to purchase any of their plans if you wanna chat with their executive. Once you purchased it, you will be able to see a help option in your account.
However, there’s one way to contact them without purchasing their plan, here the steps to do that.
How To Contact SIteGround Sales Team Without Purchasing Their Plan
SiteGround’s statement about PayPal payments:
Yes, you can use PayPal to pay for your hosting services, even though it’s not listed on our order pages. Simply contact our Sales department via the Live Chat button on top of the site in order to pay using PayPal.
Step 1: Got to SiteGround.com
Visit siteground.com and select the plan which you want to buy.
Step 2: Enter your new or existing domain name
After selecting your plan, a new page will open where you’ll have to enter the domain name.
If you have a domain name already, then select “I already have a Domain”, otherwise, select “Register a New Domain.”
Step 3: Fill Account Information
Fill in everything except your credit card info.
Don’t select an SG scanner as it is really expensive. However, if you want an extra layer of safety for your site then go for it.
Step 4: SiteGround Will Show You An Error
Now, wait for some time, Siteground will send you an email stating that your order didn’t complete. Reply to that email, ask them for help.
Tell them you are only able to use a debit card and PayPal at the moment.
They will arrange a unique link for you to make payment using your debit card or PayPal.
How To Use PayPal Or Debit Card If You Are Already A SiteGround User
It becomes little easy for people who are already a customer of SiteGround. You just need to visit the help center to connect with their customer executive.
Types of support SiteGround offers
How to do a live chat with Siteground customer support.
Step 1: Login to your SiteGround account.
Step 2: Click On Help Icon
The help icon is visible at the top right. Click on it and select the reason for contact and then proceed to contact the executive.
I personally prefer chat support as it fast and reliable. However, you can also raise a ticket or ask them for phone support.
Step 3: Select preferer Support Option
After a few minutes, live chat will start and you can ask the executive to help you pay the price using Paypal or debit card. The executive might ask you to enter your email, name, or number.
The agent will provide you a special link which you can use to make payment with a debit card or PayPal.
Once you complete the payment process, you’ll get a success message, as well as an email, informing the successful payment info.
SiteGround Renewal Process
Siteground offers a very decent discount at the beginning, but that discount doesn’t last forever.
Once your offer period offer, you’ll have to pay the normal charges to Siteground if you wanna continue with them.
That is one of the downsides of Siteground. They are expensive compared to hosts like HostGator, Bluehost, and A2Hosting.
The discount they offer also depends on the renewal period you are selecting.
For example, if you want a monthly plan of their cheapest plan (Startup Plan), then you’ll have to spend around a whopping 19.99$ months, but if you go with the yearly plan, then the price is just around 4.99$ Month.
Once your yearly plan discounts overs, you’ll have to pay around 15$ a month which is expensive. But, I think one year is enough to grow your site. Websites generally take off after a year.
We should not ignore the speed and the uptime SiteGround provides with this price. They are really fast, in fact, the average server response time of SIteGround in the last 1 year is around 700ms, which is pretty impressive.
Is PayPal Safe?
Using PayPal maybe even safer than giving your credit card number or bank account information directly to the website you’re buying from. That’s because your information is being kept in one place—at PayPal—instead of being shared everywhere you shop.
Can I Choose Monthly Plan For SiteGround?
Yes, you can select a monthly plan, but the price will go high. You will have to pay around 20$ a month which is almost quadruple compared to their yearly plan which is around 5$ a month.
Why Is SiteGround So Expensive?
The reason why SiteGround is so expensive is that they use Google’s cloud to store their customer’s data, provides custom control panel, and they provide great uptime & speed.
What Is SiteGround’s Refund Policy
SiteGround offers a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you don’t like their features, just ask for a refund or cancel your subscription by yourself.
Here are the steps to do that:
- Step 1 – Click on the Billing tab in User Area. …
- Step 2 – Click on Cancel Services under Billing Navigation.
- Step 3 – Select Services to Cancel.
- Step 4 – Select required fields under Cancellation Request then click on Proceed with Cancellation.
SiteGround doesn’t allow debit cards or PayPal payments while purchasing any of their plans. But, by contacting their support, it is possible to pay using other methods.
