New Payment Methods

Buy VIP Page Updates

It's been a while since I've given some love to our precious payment store. So today, I've spent time time on the layout and negotiated some more payment options. I'd also like to point out that due to currency fluctuations, the New Zealand dollar price has been reduced to average out with the other currency options we offer. I have also made some tweaks to Onebip should make it work better.

New Payment Options

I mentioned in the forums that I got a tip that the Ultimate Game Card is going to be shut down a month or so ago. Unfortunately, it turned out to be correct. They'll slowly start coming off the shelves now, and will be completely discontinued by 30th September 2014. (It annoys me because I know how many of you rely on them, and the reason they're closing it down is because they got bought out by Visa and the UGC is not part of their "vision", so they're closing it down, even though it's insanely popular and profitable! Oh well...)

Luckily I was able to get some new payment methods set up that'll fill that void (& more)!

When this company came to me, I was a little confused. They were a payment company who deal with using store giftcards as a general payment method. (Please note this is currently USA only.) For Americans, this completely fills the gap Ultimate Game Card has left. Basically, you can go into any Subway, any Burger King, any Circle K & more, buy their own store giftcards, come onto RoB, and buy VIP/plasma with it. How awesome is that?

Openbucks payment options
Xsolla is a payment company that is essentially a hub for all other payment methods.  They offer so many different methods, you'll find it hard finding one that you can't access. There are even more pre-paid card options (good news for the old Paysafecard users). Paysafecard and Ukash are everywhere around Europe, and Rixty is everywhere in the US. (They run also run MoneyPak and Coinstar.)

They also have several other payment methods, including even more mobile phone payment options (as we just offer Onebip independently).

The methods will differ from country to country, the above is what I see from the UK. Have a  look around and you will find something that is available to you.

I hope this helps with the all the requests I get about methods that isn't just credit cards. Been hard work getting all this sorted and I'm glad it finally is! If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

New Layout

The buy VIP/Plasma has had a little bit of a facelift. I've put the VIP packs and the plasma packs side by side so you don't have to keep scrolling down the page to see it all.

New Vials [Tonics]

Packs now come with free vials, which can be traded in Dead City for delicious tonics. You can also get your hands on these as prizes, and from the top daily quest. More ways to get vials will come over time.


To celebrate the new payment methods, there is a 3 day variety pack available. You'll find the link to get your hands on this pack on the top of your pages, or click here.

Quiz night

This Saturday evening we will be hosting another quiz night in our general chat room. Everyone is welcome! They'll be a total of 50 questions, and the first correct answer of each will win QP, and the most correct answers will win plasma at the end of the night. It will be hosted at just past midnight this Saturday night (Sunday morning). Click here for full details. Hope to see you there!
