How to purchase without a credit card?
« on: January 21, 2008, 05:14:37 pm »
Hello,

I'm very interested in your upcoming KORD scenery.
I would definitely buy it upon release but I don't have access to a credit card.
So, is there a possibility to do so without one?
Maybe you could release it via simmarket because they accept bank transactions.

We are investigating alternative forms of payments, but the first one eventually coming other then Credit Cards will be PayPal. Not sure if we can make it in time for KORD release tough, because it will need a substantial update of our sales system.

There are no plans to deliver it via simmarket.

Well, simmarket was just the first idea I had.
Paypal shouldn't be a problem for me, but I hope that it doesn't take too long to apply this system because I've been waiting for this scenery for a long time.

We are working on it, and testing it already. It might become available in time for Chicago release, but of course will apply to Zurich as well.

Release seems not too far away, any update here?
How much should I transfer to my PayPal account (only in case you can get the system work, of course...)

PayPal payment will be available in time for Chicago release (should be a couple of days), and will be possible for Zurich as well.

Good news, glad you made it.
Do you have an exact price?

Just one question, on the esellrate payment site, I have to enter my personal information (adress, tel. number etc.).
Why do you collect these datas for paying via PayPal?
I have paid some stuff with it and up to now, it was never required to fill in such forms...
Please explain.

Well, I guess you should really raise this question to Esellerate, since they are the N.1 worldwide leader in ecommerce (Esellerate=Digital River), I'm sure they can handle your data in the proper way.

We surely need a valid email address, especially with PayPal payment, were you need to manually register the serial number so, if you supply a fake email address, you might have troubles activating the product, since the email with the serial number will never reach you. And, if we can't reach you via email, we might have troubles finding your order in case you'll ever need support, like a manual reactivation when you exceed your available activations or anything related to your order we might have to handle.

I have no problem with the e-mail adress, this is really required.
However I felt like asking because of this "issue", but I think I can put my trust on their data protection...
