Game Store Updates (Part 3)

Part 1 & 2

If you missed part 1 of this update, where we updated the game store, introduced the new currency RED, you can click here to read about it. If you missed part 2, where we introduced brand new subscription packs and payment options, and Plasma Boons, you can click here.

RED Updates

To start with, I've made some small changes and tweaks to RED and the RED related pages.

  • Added the ability to sell RED for Plasma on the Auction Market
  • Added the ability to give RED as coven quest rewards
  • If you're in the EU, packs now show at the correct inclusive VAT prices
  • Various bug fixes and label errors have been fixed

Subscription Updates

Thank you for the positive feedback on the new subscription packs and new payment method. I've made more changes and enhancements based on feedback so far.

  • Subscriptions can be now be initiated through the mobile site
  • You can now setup subscriptions for other players (not via Paypal)
  • Paypal option has been added along side the new payment option

I know a lot people who are happy with using Paypal, so I've taken the time to add the option to subscribe though Paypal again. So there are now two payment options you can use to subscribe to any of our subscription packs. You can now subscribe to packs for other people, although that's limited to the new payment method due to Paypal limitations.

Apple Pay 

For those who are on the latest version of Safari on a Mac, or play using an iPhone. Apple has released the ability to use Apple Pay over the web, and I've teamed up with our current provider, Xsolla, to accept Apple Pay here on Reign Of Blood. If you're on a Mac or iPhone, you'll see Apple Pay option pop up on the list of payment methods on your basket page. From there, you can choose Apple Pay as an option and quickly pay using your iPhone fingerprint or your Apple Watch. Android Pay has yet to be released for the web, but I'll be sure to add it if they ever do.

Xsolla/SMS Changes

Xsolla have updated their payment systems, and I've spent a while setting it up for Reign Of Blood. The new system has a brand new look, and is much easier to navigate through all the payment options. The new system is mobile compatible, and even more secure.

Because of the mess SMS charging is, the way I had it setup was you buy RED with SMS and then use that to buy packs. With Xsolla's new system I can happily now let you just buy packs as standard with SMS, rather than having to use the previous more awkward method. I know some people who live in certain countries will be happy with this, as its their only payment option.

They also politely, but firmly, asked to update their logo on the payment page. Better oblige!

New Plasma Boons

4 new Plasma Boons have been added. Power Hour Warning and Power Hour Spy have been added to go along side the current Power Hour Log. Also Gym Motivation 1 and Minion Hunger Notice. Click here to see view the Plasma Shop for more information.

Mobile Updates

As I have said previously, you can now subscribe to your subscriber packs on mobile. Both payment methods are available on there, just like the desktop, as well as Apple Pay for the regular packs if you're an iPhone user.

And what's more, I've added a direct debit/credit card payment option to mobile, using the same company as the subscriptions, as the company I'm using on the desktop don't support mobile on their current system.

And finally, as I have upgraded to Xsolla's new payment platform, which is mobile compatible, I have added the ability to pay with Xsolla on the mobile site.

Other Changes

I've made a bunch of small tweaks and bug fixes. The basket summary now reflects correctly what pack you're getting, especially for VAT packs. I've also made very clear that all payments are secure and that we don't see or store any of your payment details. (I have no desire getting into that!) I have also fixed that annoying glitch when taken to the desktop thank you page when on mobile.
