Upgrading Your Account

A MediaFire account can be upgraded at any time, unlocking additional storage, sharing options, and bandwidth. There are simply too many benefits to upgrading for us to list them all here, so we encourage you to visit our product comparison page and see them for yourself.


To start upgrading an account, click on the downward-facing arrow to the right of the account avatar icon and username.

Select Upgrade from the pop-up menu to be taken to our upgrade page.

From here, choose either the Pro or Business plan, then follow the instructions to finalize your purchase and unlock your premium account features. If selecting a Business plan, be sure to choose the correct storage amount that you will need to host all of your content.


If you have never signed up for MediaFire before, you can start at our upgrade page and create your account during the upgrade process. You can also choose to create your account prior to upgrading if you prefer.


A quick note about APO and FPO Addresses

Anyone serving in the military overseas who wishes to upgrade or continue their Premium services will need to use their "Home of Record" (HOR) address that is currently on file with their military branch.


What payment methods are accepted?


MediaFire currently accepts direct payment via credit or debit card. This includes VISA, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.


At this time we cannot accept any other payment methods. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.


Can I pay for a single month?


When purchasing a Pro subscription, you are automatically signed up for recurring billing. However, the subscription can be canceled at any time from the Account Settings page. Doing this will not forfeit any subscription time already paid for, but will cause the account to downgrade to Free status once the paid subscription time is over. For more information on this process please take a moment to read our article on canceling a subscription.


Do you charge tax for Premium Subscriptions?


If you are a resident of Texas, you will be charged 8.25% of each transaction.
