Both Oranum and Psychic Source have a large selection of experienced psychics with a wide range of specialties, but there are some significant differences between these two sites.
While Oranum is known for its free live video sessions, Psychic Source has a money-back guarantee and attractive introductory offers – you can schedule a reading for less than $1 per minute and you get 3 minutes for free.
Let me take you through the specifics of each site to help you decide which option is right for you.

Oranum vs. Psychic Source: Types of Readings
When compared to other popular online psychic reading sites, Oranum has the most reading categories; 13+ primary categories to be exact.
Some of the more popular categories include:
- Love and Relationships
There are also niche categories such as:
- Pet Readings
- Fortune Telling
- Sound Healing
- Dream Interpretation
Oranum has a much larger database of psychics than most other sites too, far too many to count.
Unfortunately, you cannot filter your search based on psychic gifts and abilities, but you can choose very specific categories at the top of the homepage, which will help speed up your search.
Then, to get a sense of each psychic’s reading style, read more about them in their bios or join one of their live sessions.
Psychic Source has an equally extensive selection of reading categories, but not as many as Oranum. Some of the most popular categories are:
- Love and Relationships
- Career and Finance
However, you can also find reading categories that address more specific concerns. Love and relationships, for example, has subcategories that include sibling/parent issues, cheating/wandering hearts, toxic relationships, and more.
Psychic Source also has a good number of psychics with abilities ranging from clairvoyance to clairaudience, as well as those who use tools such as crystals and angel cards.
Winner: Psychic Source for the extensive selection of reading categories.
Oranum vs. Psychic Source: Pricing
Oranum gives psychics the option to set their own prices. Fortunately, the rates are still competitive. The lowest per minute rate I discovered was $0.39, and the highest was $9.99.
To get a reading, you’ll need to buy coins, which are credits. There is also a generous introductory offer for first-time customers – $9.99 worth of free coins, which can buy you a 10-minute reading depending on the psychic you choose. All you have to do to claim this offer is validate your credit card. You also receive bonus credits when you buy additional coins.
Advisors on Psychics Source, like those on Oranum, can set their own rates, but there is no price cap. I discovered a significant disparity in rates among psychics on this site. Readers can charge as much as $17.99 per minute, with the lowest being $4.99.
On the plus side, new customers can get a private reading for either $1, $2, or $3 per minute – depending on the psychic. To take advantage of this offer, you must purchase a package, which will also get you 3 free minutes.
Winner: Oranum for competitive per-minute rates.
Oranum vs. Psychic Source: Website Usability
Setting up an account on Oranum is simple; all you need is an email address, your preferred username, and a password.
Once you’ve logged in, you might feel a little disoriented because the site is cluttered with videos of psychics and reading categories, so you will need to do some digging to find a good psychic match.
When you click on a psychic’s profile, you will be taken to their full profile, where you can learn more about their gifts, tools, and reading style. However, I was underwhelmed by the majority of the profiles I looked at as they only included a brief message, maybe a star rating, and a list of their specialties.
Psychics on Oranum can choose not to display their reviews, making it difficult to judge the quality or accuracy of their readings. But, you can always check out the live sessions to get a sense of their reading style.
Oranum has a mobile app, but I recommend using the desktop version of the site. The mobile app is not very user-friendly.
The Psychic Source site has a straightforward sign-up process and is easy to navigate in general. There is no need to create an account before you can browse the different psychic profiles either.
Once you create an account, you can either search according to reading type or base your search on a psychic’s reading style and the tools they use. I found these filtering options sped up my search process, allowing me to meet with a psychic sooner.
One of the things I really like about the Psychic Source website is that you can view a reader’s video, phone, and chat schedules, ensuring you can speak with your preferred psychic at a time that is most convenient for you.
Psychic Source also has an app that allows you to connect with readers on the go.
The only drawback I discovered was that Psychic Source forces your hand – the only way to create an account on the site is by buying an introductory package.
Winner: Psychic Source for a user-friendly experience on both desktop and mobile.
Oranum vs. Psychic Source: Trustworthiness
Oranum claims to vet psychics on their website, but they do not provide specifics about their screening process, which is disappointing.
Furthermore, Oranum also does not provide a satisfaction guarantee, which does affect the site’s credibility to some extent.
Having said that, psychics are required to host live sessions weekly. This is an opportunity to meet and chat with each reader before committing to a private reading. What’s more, Oranum has been around for several years now, which helps with trustworthiness.
While Psychics Source does not specify how they vet their psychics, the fact that they have been in business for more than 30 years is a good indicator of their trustworthiness. Advisors on the site are also bound by an ethical code that protects users: no requests for personal information, no solicitation or imposition of personal beliefs.
Furthermore, Psychic Source provides a money-back guarantee of 100% for readings lasting up to 20 minutes.
This means that if you are dissatisfied with your most recent reading for any reason, you can file a claim and receive credits back if you report within 24 hours. I tried this process myself and found it to be a straightforward process. I received my credits back within 48 hours.
Winner: Psychic Source for their satisfaction guarantee and ethical code.
Oranum vs. Psychic Source: Added Extras
Oranum: Extra Features
Oranum distinguishes itself from other sites by allowing you to meet and chat with a psychic in real-time via a live video session before paying for a private reading. This is especially important given that readings on Oranum are not backed by a satisfaction guarantee.
That being said, you will most likely have to sit through hundreds of ‘lives’ to find your ideal match.
Psychic Source: Extra Features
Psychic Source has a lot of extra features that make visiting their website even more enjoyable. There is a ‘Favorite Tool’ that allows you to narrow down your options and create a shortlist of psychic candidates.
The website also provides free horoscope readings for your star sign up to a year in advance.
And the icing on the cake is their loyalty/rewards program. You get 3% back on every purchase you make on the site, which you can save up and use towards future readings.
Winner: Psychic Source for their reward program and ‘Favorite Tool’.
The Bottom Line on Oranum vs. Psychic Source
Psychic Source outperformed Oranum in four of the five categories.
If I had to choose, Psychic Source is my site of choice, especially given Oranum’s lack of a satisfaction guarantee. With Psychic Source, you’ll get an easy-to-use, reliable website that’s been around for over 30 years and has some great features.
However, Oranum has some advantages that should not be overlooked. Their low-cost readings, live video shows, and bonuses are fantastic.
Overall, the best psychic website for you is determined by your needs – and no one knows them better than you.
