As the name suggests, Findmypast PayAsYouGo credits work on a pay-per-view basis. You can purchase a bundle of credits for a set price and these credits are used up each time you view a record. All PayAsYouGo credits are valid for 90 days from purchase.
You will find more about the prices of PayAsYouGo credits on the bottom of the 'Subscribe' page.
Records cost between 5 and 20 credits to view. Any records you view using PayAsYouGo credits can be accessed again free of charge via My Records.
Once you’ve purchased credits, simply select a record to view. You will be shown the number of credits that will be used if you view the selected record. If you are happy to purchase the record with your credits, select on the ‘Confirm’ button.
You also have the option to select ‘Don't ask me again for 30 minutes’. By choosing this option, your credits will be reduced each time you view a record over the next 30 minutes.
You can view your current credit balance at any time by selecting ‘My Account’ from the navigation menu.
