Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Thank you for supporting futekiya!
We have received a number of similar questions regarding our #ReadMangaTogether for FREE Campaign so please check the FAQ below first should you have any questions:
The error “This site can’t be reached” appears on the screen
There may be an issue with your device’s network settings.
Please connect to a different LAN or use a 3G or 4G connection. Using a different network may solve the error. We apologize for the inconvenience.
I haven’t received the registration confirmation email.
In many cases, there was an error when entering your email information.
Otherwise, the confirmation may have gone directly to your spam/junk folder.
In addition, we have confirmed rare cases where mail servers have treated the confirmation email as spam and automatically discarded it.
If that seems to be what happened, please try using a different email. On our end, we are changing the settings of our mail sending servers in order to prevent this from happening.
I signed up, but I still cannot access the Library for free.
You need to subscribe to the FREE Plan. After signing in, please click the green button that says “Click here to subscribe to the FREE Plan” to access the Library for free.
Can I use PayPal to make payments?
As we stated in our recent announcement, due to the impact of COVID-19, our development progress has slowed down.
At the moment, we are working to ensure a June launch of PayPal as a payment option. We greatly appreciate your patience.
My credit/debit card can’t be used with Stripe
We have found that some credit/debit cards cannot be used with Stripe.
The issue may be because:
・the card does not allow subscription payments
・the card does not allow use for services from abroad
・the card has insufficient balance (in the case of debit cards)
・the card is on a blacklist
However, there may be another underlying reason for your card not working on Stripe. In this case, please contact your card company or use a different card.
Do you have a mobile app?
Unfortunately we do not have a mobile application. Our reader works on browsers only.
However, we will look into developing a downloadable app if we receive more requests and readers strongly prefer to read on an app.
If you have any other questions, please contact us using this form and we will be glad to answer them.
Thank you again for your continued support of futekiya!
