Hi Arkadians, Recently there has been discussion about the cost of depositing via the recently introduced method of using MOLPoints, from www.mol.com. Concerns have been raised about the cost of depositing with this method, so I wanted to address this. The cost When you deposit using your MOLPoints, a 25% fee is charged by MOL. For example, depositing 1 US Dollar gives 7.5 PED. How MOL works The exchange rate between MOLPoints and the player's local currency is different from country to country. Players with MOL accounts are offered specials from time to time, and can collect MOLPoint bonuses through various means. They can then deposit with those points into over 200 different games. Depositing options Depositing via MOL is currently not an option with the in-game interface. There are two ways to deposit: The first is explained at the MOL site here. The second is directly at the Entropia Universe site (which you have to log in to) here. During both processes, the depositor needs to confirm on two separate occasions the amount of PED they are receiving in exchange for the amount of USD they are paying. Reason Please be aware that the primary purpose of the MOLPoints option is to open up Entropia to players who would otherwise have no payment options. As we mentioned in the press release, it is not actually that common for young people in Asia to have a credit card. MOLPoints gives them an easy option that they are used to. It is also worth noting that these players (numbering in the millions!) are very much used to paying to play other game with MOLPoints already, with a similar fee being charged by MOL along the way, without ever expecting to be able to withdraw. The possibility of withdrawing again will most likely be new to most MOL customers. MOLPoints is simply one more depositing option, but one that powerfully opens up Entropia to a wider audience who would otherwise not have access. Having gone over the process again in response to your feedback, we believe the disclosure of costs during the depositing process is adequate in its own context. However, we could see that addressing it directly here for you would be helpful, so that is what I've done today. Thanks as always for your concern. I know it comes from a place of loving the game and wanting it to be a good experience for everyone, and so it's great when you let us know how we're doing.
