What does Zen cost?
 
I'm not real keen in the idea of giving my credit card info without knowing what I'm paying for. Is the cost of Zen described anywhere? IE: How much zen per $.

it's really simple: 1 zen=1 cent, 100 zen=$1.00 USD

Best just to hit a store and get the pre-paid $10.00 card (or however many you need) to use for 1000 zen...this way, there are no charges incurred on your credit card :D

Yeah now that we have to pay pwi we also get to pay international transfer fees.

If you buy $50.00-$100 worth of points you get a small bonus and at $200.00 it is slightly bigger still.

Thanks f9...

As for the bonuses for spending more... I think I'll go to the store. Getting more virtual stuff is all fine and dandy, but God and my wife would hurt me.

Back to the dilly grind I guess.

PS: I'm more afraid of my wife in this respect.

Can you pay for zen through PayPal?

Not sure if you're meaning directly from your PayPal account. PayPal IS a payment processor for PWE.

To the OP: The formula is $1 USD = 100 ZEN if using a payment processor. Prepaid cards follow the same conversion but are only available in the US and Canada (at least, per the billing options page).

If you're in the EU, you'll be charged in Euros, and VAT may be applicable.

It's PWE, not PWI, and international transfer fees are usually assessed by your bank, not PWE.
