Account & Billing FAQ
How much does PeopleLooker cost?
When you visit PeopleLooker for the first time, you should be brought to a page with our latest sign-up deals and special offers. You can also view our current pricing.
PeopleLooker’s mission is to provide affordable and easy access to public records. In the past, access to public records was confusing and expensive. PeopleLooker aims to disrupt this trend by providing not only an affordable pricing model but also helpful customer service along the way. We are always offering different deals and pricing options in order to best fit our customers’ needs. Whether you sign up as a pay-as-you-go customer and purchase reports as you need them, or sign up for a subscription to unlimited reports, we never want you to ask yourself “if it’s worth it” to run a search.
If you have questions about specific pricing, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-800-218-3309.
What does my account come with?
If you’ve signed up for a paid subscription, you have access to run unlimited background reports! These can include, when available: names and aliases, relatives and associates, address histories, property reports, phone numbers, email addresses, criminal records and convictions, and much more. If you’ve signed up as a pay-as-you-go customer, you always have the ability to log in and view the reports you purchased and the option to purchase additional reports. You always have the option to upgrade to an unlimited subscription. You also have an opportunity to check out some of our premium services for an additional purchase, such as a Court Runner upgrade, depending on the information you need.
Do I have to sign up again for PeopleLooker when my subscription is up?
You don’t have to sign up again; your membership will be automatically renewed to the same term until you cancel. If you cancel, you’ll enjoy unlimited reports for the remainder of your paid term. Your subscription will not be renewed after that term expires. Should you wish to come back in the future, we’ll be happy to have you! You can always log back into your canceled account to view the reports you ran previously. You’ll also have the option of reactivating your subscription.
What payment methods does PeopleLooker accept?
PeopleLooker accepts U.S. issued Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express cards, as well as PayPal.
What if I don't have a credit card?
We offer PayPal as a payment option on our sign-up pages for those customers who don't wish to use a credit card. Don't use PayPal? Then you may want to check out our app for the iPhone (available from the App Store) or Android (available from Google Play). You also have the option of purchasing a subscription, through the app, billed to your iTunes or Google Play account.
How can I update my billing information?
You can add another credit or debit card to your account. Once logged in, open the “My Account” page from the menu or the dashboard. Click on “edit account info” on the bottom right hand corner and select “edit payment info.” Enter the credit or debit card details and billing information of the new card to add it to your account.
How do I view my purchased reports?

Am I still charged if the person I search does not have a criminal record?
