What is Free to use
"Able to act or be done as one wishes; not under the control of another"
How often do you see this, only to be asked for your credit card details when you subscribe and told they won't be used until your free trial is over.
No this is not ethical and it is not fair.
A free to use program should be just that, free to use until you have learned enough about the program and decide to subscribe to it under your own control.
By handing over your c/c details your are allowing that company to be in control of your decision.
Because once the free trial is over, 1 minute past midnight the following day your card is debited.
These companies work on the assumption that you will forget about the free trial period and therefore forget to cancel your free trial subscription.
Would you go to your local supermarket and hand over your credit card before you have chosen the goods you are going to buy, of course not, nor should you when buying something on the internet.
Any legitimate and ethical company would allow you to try their goods before asking you to subscribe with whichever payment system you use, that way it is your own decision to buy or fly.
With Wealthy Affiliate, you are given the opportunity to fully engage in every aspect of the program for 7 days before you even think about subscribing to the premium membership.
This is a true Try before you buy program.
