There are always alternatives, some better than others. Of course soldering is the best practical option. While intimidating to those that have never done it before, it is easy. Most are intimidated from trying at some point and it not working, likely at all. But they watch videos and see others doing it and can't tell what they did wrong. Secrets are in the little details. A good condition soldering iron head, clean everything. Body oils will prevent solder from sticking. Flux is not optional. And all Flux is not created equal, and each type has a purpose
