Adding more options in buying cyrptic points
 
Hi there, Please open more options to buy cryptic points, some people do not have credit cards or paypal account.
or just prefer other ways to pay, for example buying cryptic points from perfect world is lame since you will lose alot of points due the transfer rate.

100=80 thats not fair >.>

i bought 2000 ZEN and transfer to startrek it became 1600 lost 400 points -.- with 400 point i could get other items...
please reconsider this option

If 100 Zen has the same costs as 80 C-Points, why is it not fair???

Zen are cheaper per point, but the $ you spend ends up giving you the same number of C-Points as if you'd been able to buy them directly.

For those without credit cards or paypal, what about pre-paid credit cards?

Isn't that why they started the dilithium exchange?

Pre-paid credit cards don't provide the account confirmation information... (basicly a throw-away item...)

well, as for crytpic points, if i buy them from pay pal let say 2000 CP i would get the full 2000 CP points. (at cryptic site)

but if i buy them from PWE i get 2000 ZEN tranfers to STO (star trek online) leaves me 1600 due transfer rate.
rate at PWE is 100 ZEN = 80 CP
so 2000-400 = 1600

I pay the amount on both sides i think but recieve les at PWE so thats not a fair trade. I know PWE needs some income to but i do not like that i lose points in process.

see what i mean ? with that ?

@ what do you mean with dilithium exchange ? im sorry im fairly new to the game... please explain :)

the price is the same if you go buy $25 worth of cp from getting zen it will get you 2k cp, go look at the crypic virtual points card you will see $25 spent on cp from cryptic gets you 2k cp. the cp are worth more than the zen thats why its not a 1 to 1. the Dilithium exchange is down right now but you can buy cp from other players for Dilithium, at a rate of about 300 Dilithium for 1 cp because the cp is worth more than the Dilithium. :)

You need to compare the amounts of money you spend. From what I've seen on other posts, 1000 zen = 800 c-points, and they both cost the same amount of money.

Precisely. It's always been $10 for 800 C-Points, and the ZEN conversion rate takes that into account. Also, if you go the ZEN route, there are several other options at your disposal to use, depending on your region.

Click and Buy, Moneybookers, Google Checkout, prepaid cards

That link is a full listing of PWE's current payment options for ZEN--and not all of them are credit card-based.
