    bigUmovies sign up question

    I tried to buy the $19.95 lifetime subscription. I filled out all the credit card, billing info etc and hit continue at the bottom of the page but nothing happened. I tried it 3 times and then gave up.

    What am I missing here? Do I need an account first to sign in to?

    Apparently you need to sign up for an Alert Pay Account. Once you signed up, you will need to verify a credit card to your alertpay.

    The easiest method to verify is to use a credit card. They will charge a "secret" amount of 1 - 2 euros to the card that your submitted. You will then need to find out from your bank (or wait for your statement) the "secret" amount and then enter the amount to verify.

    I did all that by calling the bank for the amount and then verifying the amount to my alertpay account. Voila! It's done.

    However, after doing all the above, I found out that I cannot add funds to my alertpay account so bigU can deduct the funds. I cannot add funds using the credit card which I have already verified.

    Can only add funds using bank wire transfer which will cost an additional $20. Crazy.

    I have already given up as I have no wish to pay extra just to get the funds into my alertpay account.

    Ridiculous why it's been made so difficult.

    Or am I missing something here?

    I used a master card gift card and it worked fine right from the alert pay page.

    I don't trust it.. Why does it want me to enter my Paypal login on it's site? Why not have an external link that pushes me to PayPals secure site?

    Lol, it's not PayPal, it's AlertPay and it does take you directly to AlertPay. I did it personally so I know it's legit. AlertPay's page is transparent therefore you can see the background of the app instead of the white background.

    Lol, this app is so illegal it's ridiculous.

    I don't really care, but these movie rips are so blatantly illegal I'm surprised everybody here isn't up in arm arms about it.

    I DL'ed a movie this morning that is still in theaters and you could clearly see that it had been recorded by someone in the seats of a movie theater....

    I recommend anybody who was stupid (like me) and paid for this app, DL everything you can right now before the app gets closed down.

    The "lifetime" membership will only last until they are shut down.

    Sorry, but I'm not likely to believe someone with 2 posts, who happened to come around around the same time this app appeared.. Nothing personal..
