Is WaniKani free or do you need to pay to level up
It’s free until level 3, so you would decide if you want to pay for a subscription after reaching level 3 ^^
You can find the subscription pricing page here
The first three levels are free, you have to then decide if you like it enough to want to pay for it.
The prices can be found here:
Right now it’s 9$ a month or 89$ annual. You can also get a lifetime account.
EDIT: @MissMisc was faster.
