comment How to you prevent someone from getting a “new free trial period” by just creating a new login?
Hmmm... I suspect that many honest users will give a fake address from fear of getting junk mail (I do) and dishonest users (which is what I'm concerned about) will just use f fake address every time).

The trick is : unique info that users have a very limited # of (phone #) that they can verify ONLY they own.

You could also record a hash of their cc # and cc name and billing zipcode and check for duplicates (of even just the cc name and billing address)

@unor, that answer assumes pluggins. See my update above (can't use pluggins)
