    i was very surprised you gents dont allow paypall transactions o_O

    id really rather not have this appear directly on my bank statement if possible and paypall is nice vague about spendings on my statements, any wiggle room on buying PED this way? like could the CEO pm me their paypall details for PED or some such?

    id feel much safer using it as i havent used any of the others.

    i want to make a deposit of £20 or $32 based on present conversions

    is this possible or am i nailed down to credit card only?

    alright i notice there are % charges for handling transactions =/ is that the reason?

    This falls under the category of MindArk. They deal with all depositing and the likes. They are based out of Sweden which is why there isn't an option for Paypal. I wish they would include in the future, more North Americans would be able to deposit this way. Maybe send in a support case to Mindark?

    its odd because they cant take money until i move to a planet so the wallet must be specific to that plant/company, can i simply have somone sell me ingam ped and il pay them after via paypall? or does that break the eula or some such rule?

    Any additional fees incurred during a deposit or withdrawl are not going to Mindark, but rather the financial institutions or method(see Visa).

    Credit Card users are dinged 3.5% on deposits b/c that's what Visa charges vendors to use their service.

    If you're in the UK, I believe there are several indirect payment methods available, if discretion is your goal.

    Hmmmm, the misses isn't allowed to know you spend some of your earnings on games?? :D

    lol, na just kidding.

    Well as mentioned, this is MindArk's department, not one of the planet partners.
    Not sure, maybe a planet partner can ask MA to add a PayPall option?
    And as mentioned, you alway's can shoot a support case to MA.

    As RochChick say's, UKash might be a option for you.
    Seems to work basically the same as PayPall, but I don't know if it's available in your area.

    Regards,
    Ion

    true i guess but isnt all that going to take more time? its been two days, i finally get on by making a new account and im stuck with either

    "Hmmmm, the misses isn't allowed to know you spend some of your earnings on games??

    lol, na just kidding." <--- this, and your right lol :D

    or waiting more time to be very lazy and start myself up :D idk il look at various avenues and either decide to buy or is scamming allowed? on some games the admins are of the thesis if your stupid enough to fall for it, but i guess as everyones so nice here il probobly feel to bad to scam somone even if it was allowed :D

    hell mabye il just make a femail avatar and befriend the highest level guy i see :D

    The reason provided by MindArk why PayPal is not available ingame is that it is not secure enough.

    paypall is no less secure then a credit card transaction, it also has buyer and seller protection and insurance to cover fraud, there is no possible to scam somone on it unless they happen to ignore their bank statement for well over a month, filing a dispute gets you your money back if the dispute is ignored, it gets you the money back if you can prove what you are saying is true and various other easy to provide proofs that can get you your money back.

    if i pay for something on card and call my bank my account gets frozen i lose access to my cash and it takes forever for the fraud to be proven. paypall----- its so much easier, and some of these pay cards... i mean how secure is a voucher? iv never heard of paypall accounts going missing....

    Interesting.

    Why people don't use a paypal debit card to deposit (has visa logo) i never understand. From my understanding that should work.

    Anywhere you use a debit or credit card the merchant will incure a cost from the payment provider. I don't know the exact % or amount, but the charge goes unseen because its usually added to the cost of whatever you buy. In this case you see 1.5% I believe of a charge from the payment provider (DIBS I think).

    I agree it does suck. The only way I think you can avoid any fee for depo is a bank transfer.

    Which, of course, requires $100 USD mininium deposit. (i think)
