Thread: Paysafecard/virtual wallets

    Paysafecard/virtual wallets

    I could use a guide in order to be confident enough to spend money on a virtual credit card or paysafecard for example.
    As a dyslexic who has trouble understanding payment processes, I will not be well able to navigate through the accounts payment page with anything non standard that has no information on the process.
    Surely Funcom you can add a section for virtual wallets.
    A lot of AO players are nerds who don't use banks/paypal.. I'm one of those people and would love to re-open my account.

    If anyone could give a step by step guide, preferably with pictures or exact text, I would appreciate it greatly.
    Before anyone asks, I don't/won't be using Steam.

    I have used paysafecard lots of times for other games and I've read that some people have managed to get this to work for Anarchy online too.
    But there is just one thread on this topic in English and one in German, neither give information on how to actually do it..

    I'd suggest that a dev or whomever is responsible in this area, creates a visual guide so the company can receive payments from more people.
    Don't you know how many are away because they can't give you there money?
    Have you tried mass emails to let people now this is actually possible with a paysafecard or virtual wallet?

    Sometimes I really wonder what is going on here.
    Is it realistic to have such a bottleneck with information and methods for payment? ^^
    I don't understand why payment methods are not the top priority, before development...

    Sadly Funcom is known far and wide, for their astonishing mishandling and skewed priorities, not only for AO.

    Im just one of those suckers that love AO, and will until they either close the game down. Or give it the priority it deserves.

    In any case, i do hope you will find a way to join AO again.

    I'd say, just make a PayPal account, it is totally safe, and you don't need to store anything on it. Give your card details, transfer the $$$ you will spend on AO, then delete your card details. Quite simple really, and much better than to wait for Funcom to change

    I don't have credit card and don't use a bank account.
    As far as I know I can't use paypal without hooking it up to a bank account.
    This isn't a problem with all poker sites so far, as they all take online wallets or directly from paysafecard.
    I know from forums that some people have managed to use paysafecard with AO. Just nobody seems to want to share how exactly

    ps. Thanks Raelil
    Still froobing it at the moment
    Not sure how long I will last before I get bored.

    Yes, PayPal is very safe! You just need to send them your social security number or other personal information in snail mail to verify your account.

    nop, no need for that. Paypal charges your credit card for $1 to verify your card, and immediately refunds it. I think you only need to give more details if you are a merchant, which is understandable I think

    that said, Funcom has a tricky way of circumventing paypal security measures. they make you preapprove all future payments, so you cannot reclaim them. My account recently went frozen and FC charged me $70 for 1 month.... been over 24 hours and still no word from customer service... :/
    Sheesh, why does Funcom have the worst customer handling of all companies? I've been a customer for like 10+ years and always had rough bumps with their billings :/ they eventually resolve them, but making you cringe every time you pay for something is not good rep for a company

    You can choose if you want to add a bankaccount or a credit card. No need to add a bank account.
    It tells you to add a bank account but there is a link which says "Add a credit card first" or something similiar at the bottom.

    And seeing the payment options on funcoms page you either need a creditcard or a paypal account.
    With everything else you seem to be out of luck.
    Don't know if it is possible to get a prepaid credit card without a bank account..
    It might be possible to add a payssafecard to paypal depending on your country.

    But I'm not a merchant. I had an account before they changed their policy and the account is forever locked until I provide that info to them.

    I've tried making subsequent accounts and that's all they ask for.
    I've gone through their support (email & call) and that's all they say I need to provide to get full access to an account. So I would not recommend PayPal in the slightest.

    As of April, 2012, new Federal Regulations require Money Service Businesses, such as PayPal, to verify the identity of a customer before we can provide various services or product offerings. As a result, PayPal must ensure we have collected and verified important data such as customer name, address, date of birth, and national tax ID or social security number.
    ^ is the very reason I am unable to use a PayPal account. As you must send your SS# to them through the mail along with other identification that, if taken, would easily be used for Identity Theft.

    Interessting.. I'm using it for years and not once did I have to provide any proof whatsoever. They just did what aramsunat said with my bank account and credit card to verify they exists and that was that. Maybe country dependend laws that change how they have to do that.

    Thanks Behoernchen.
    I try to see if paypal will allow me to keep an account with just a paysafecard as my credit card.~
    It seems from the link you sent that after ordering a paysafecard credit card I might be able to use it like a credit card.
    Possibly even allowing my to bypass paypal and pay directly to funcom.
    It's going to take me a while to figure this out though. If I succeed I'll return here with info on how.

    one time i paid for a subscription with an american express gift card. These are only supposed to work with merchants inside the U.S. The payment went through however, for about 10 minutes. during that time i was able to set up all my perks on my main. when I logged off and back on to see that my account was frozen, I contacted FC support to have my account reverted back to a froob account (since I never accessed shadowlands it was still possible). When I went back to my main, I found that I was a froob account except with all the perks and perk attacks of a paid player.

    Fun times. now that account eventually got paid legitimately and its no longer sploited.
    wasnt my fault
