The $5 will be used to top up your account, this mainly applies to PayPal. Here are the two messages for each payment method again:

Credit card:
“We won’t charge your card. You may see a temporary pre-authorization charge to verify the card, which will be reversed within a week.”

“To confirm your PayPal account, you need to make a $5 pre-payment. This pre-payment will apply to any future bills.”

You mean if I use PayPal I am going to be charged $5?

Is there any other alternative if I don't wish to pay?

Currently, you could choose only between PayPal and Credit card payments.
