I won't touch the OP's personal "special case" with iLok, but I know for a fact that it originated with me (since he bought his first iLok key from me) - and his hate towards a lot of companies (especially iLok related) has continued since then. It's also not uncommon for the OP to start a thread, ask for help and then vanish into thin air.

Take a look at the service "mywirecard", which offers two types of Prepaid credit cards. Take note of the fine prints, and the costs involved. You can even "charge" these cards at every other gas station. The Master Card might be up your alley price/deal wise.
Though, I understand the pessimism towards credit card systems. Especially if you already struggle with the SCHUFA.
Then again, I don't understand the hate yet again towards iLok. You use and enjoy software that uses that kind of CP (where you have, funny enough, no issues!), you do impulse purchases rather than trying a demo first. And if something is not working to your expectations, it's always the fault of the developer.
You probably know this saying:
