Can I pay by credit card – is it safe and secure?

We have the facility in our office to take credit and debit card payments. We use extremely secure servers, that encrypt your details making it a very safe and secure way to be joining & paying. If you would like to pay by credit card, please ring us and we will take your card details over the telephone. We would rather you pay this way than by paypal infact – however if you’d rather use paypal that’s fine too.

Who should I write my cheque out to?
Cheques should be made payable to friendsfirst.
Why don’t you believe in free trials?
friendsfirst don’t believe in giving people free trials for a number of reasons.


Firstly the ‘free trial’ offer is most commonly used as a technique by online dating agencies (including online Christian dating agencies) to bolster their so called membership numbers. People sign up for a free trial and then leave. What happens is that further down the road when real members try to contact these ‘free trial’  members, they no longer exist, causing frustration all around.  All friendsfirst members are live and paid up and reachable!


Secondly making new Christian friends and finding a relationship takes time. You can’t do it in 10 days or in the short period of time that a free trial allows.


Thirdly – what are you trialling with a free trial? If its how the system works, you can find this out from our website and talking to us. There is no such thing as trialling our members – as they are constantly changing. You might not like one person sent to you in a free trial, but they’d be no indication of the next member. We’re all individuals and all different.
