if you are english or american or from europe or even vulcan lol the best way to buy cpoints and save money on the tax that you pay with zen points is to play the game via steam and use a steam wallet to buy cpoints, its costs me ?16 to buy 2000 cpoints rather than ?19.20 it used to when i got charged vat (tax) buying the virtual point cards off this site trust me guys u need to buy via steam and save the cash.

I dont want to pay in Euros and recieve a transaction fee from my bank.

I also want to know exactly how much I am paying in sterling and paying the correct UK VAT of 20%.

Cant see why there is an issue when I could pay in pound sterling before.

For me this is Cryptics lost as I will spend my money on something more worth wild in the real world

Well STO has done it for me.
I have only rarely had need to buy c-store points.
From now on I will not.

I brought the game from UK in GBP, I brought my lifetime in GBP. I am british and only prepared to pay for goods in my currency. I also want my VAT to go to the UK governmant.

That's incorrect.

Q: Can I still buy Cryptic Points through Steam?
Cryptic Points will no longer be available through Steam, however, you can purchase ZEN for use in Cryptic Games. ZEN purchased for Champions or Star Trek using your Steam Wallet will go directly to your in-game ZEN balance.

I was thinking of getting zen by getting a paysafe card from my local store, has anyone else used these?
Are they reliable?
Roughly how much zen do you get to the pound? 50 zen = ?

Sorry if i'm being a pain in the butt, i'm only a 5 minute walk from the store lol
