To begin with you will need to sign up for a free trial. This is how all Runbox accounts start out. You can find the “Sign Up for a Free Trial” button on our front page at

You can pay for Runbox as soon as your account is open, and there are a number of benefits to doing this. We often have special offers that are only available during the first 24 hours after you sign up for an account. You also get a fully functional account without any of the trial limitations.

You have nothing to lose by paying for your account as soon as you sign up as we give you the free trial month anyway (i.e. your account will expire 13 months after you opened it), and we offer a 60 day money back guarantee where you can change your mind for any reason (you don’t even have to tell us why) and we will refund your subscription payment.

Credit and Debit Cards

Runbox currently accepts both Visa and MasterCard debit and credit

For payment by other types of card please see the section below.

Some banks refuse credit/debit card transactions if they are being requested by a company outside the country the card was issued in. If this is the case, you should contact your bank and ask them to authorise the transaction. If you still find you cannot pay then please read the section below about paying using a card via PayPal without the need for a PayPal account.

These include the cards listed below, plus many other regionally issued cards (e.g. the EC-Karte).paypal

The actual cards offered via PayPal can vary according to the country you are in.

Pre-paid cards

There are a variety of pre-paid Visa, MasterCard and American Express cards that can be purchased. Some of these work with online purchases, and others do not. We tend to find that most don’t work with our payment processor, and as such we don’t recommend this method of payment.

Bank Transfers

Runbox also accepts payment via direct bank transfer in US Dollars, Euro and Norwegian Krone. To pay using this method complete the payment process choosing “Pay with other methods”. Once you have completed the process you will be given our bank details so you can make the transfer.
