Error when creating an account in Photobucket

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi Experts!

I tried logging in to Photobucket and creating an account. 

However, I failed to do so because it said that I was ineligible to register. 

This is a bit weird since it’s a new account and I had entered valid data. 

I had actually created accounts several times already and it said the same thing every time. 

Please help.

See the screenshot of the error message that I got:

We’re sorry.

Based on the information you have submitted to us, you are ineligible to register on Photobucket.

Error when creating an account in Photobucket


For users who are not so familiar with Photobucket, it is an American image and video hosting website, web services suite, and online community with headquarters in Denver, Colorado. It hosts over 10 billion images from 100 million registered users. The website was founded by Darren Crystal and Alex Welch in 2003 and received funding from Trinity Ventures.

In 2007, Photobucket was acquired by Fox Interactive Media then in December 2009, News Corp, Fox’s parent company, sold Photobucket to Ontela, a Seattle mobile imaging startup. After that, Ontela renamed itself to Photobucket Inc. and since then continued operating as Photobucket. This video and image hosting service is not free. It is on a per subscription basis.

It offers three subscription plans: Beginner, Intermediate, and Expert. The Beginner plan is at $5.99 a month while Intermediate is at $7.99. The Expert plan is at $12.99 a month. Now, if your registration keeps failing and the error says you are not eligible, go to the bottom of the page and click the Terms of Use link.

That would explain why you are not qualified to register as a user. It says there that to register an account, one has to be 16 years old and older. They actually have a free account but as of June 30, 2017, they dropped their free hosting service. Every user now has to start with a paid account.
