    Bank accounts are the main way. Credit cards are only used as backup for Paypal in case your bank account doesn't go through.

    If you don't have a bank account or a credit card then I suppose you shouldn't be playing a subsription based game (or you're a kid, in which case get your parents to do it).

    I'm British and I use my bank account with PayPal all the time, are you making this difficult for yourself?

    If your bank account has an account number and a sort code it should work.

    If at first you don't succeed, threaten to quit unless it's nerfed.

    I just do not understand all the rage over this. I realize it says it comes with a 30 day free subscription.. however; almost every pay to play game I've ever played has had the same requirement. A game card or credit card has always been required to set the game up.. then charges after the initial 30 days. Obviously it can be frustrating.. but unless you've never gamed before and are 100% new to MMOs (In which case you wouldn't be posting in the forums) You could have found this out in advance.


    As for not having a credit card: You -could- purchase a prepaid card that is accepted as a credit/debit card.. Like a Visa giftcard. You load it like a giftcard and then can use it as a credit card.

    As for not being willing/able to have even a debit card... good luck in the rest of the world as in this day in age damn near everything requires at least a debit card.

    Ok do you have access to a store that carries the prepaid Visa gift cards? I think they have ones for like 10 bucks.

    Or just a prepaid credit card...tho I think there is a set up fee.

    I am really with these folks who ask the question, subscription fee game...what did you expect?

    30 days free yes, I don't have a box here tho - I am pretty sure it will say somewhere on there that a gamecard or credit card is required.

    So this thread again boils down to L2R

    This has been a issue for over a decade, going back to EQ1. It says and always had said on the box "A Valid Credit Card is required to play this game". Kinda simple really. You need a CC to set up the subscription then immediately cancel.

    As already pointed out by many people, OP, there are no excuses for having trouble with Paypal unless you don't have a bank account of any kind, even if other countries, as others have shared. Paypal does not mean credit card.

    Also as others have already pointed out, a lot of these things are typical of all MMOs, and are stated clearly before you purchase. If you don't have a bank account (which you can use with Paypal) nor a credit card, you should've been aware of the issues you'd face with playing a subscription-based game long before the game went live. This isn't Trion's fault.

    Wow Op you're acting like a child calm down dam.

    You need to go & get a game card but guess what you can wait until you need to go to the store for something else & save your gas money.

    Trion makes you use a game card /or credit card before your first free 30 days turns active its commen sense.

    When you buy a apartment for 5 months & you get 1 month free you need to pay the firsts months rent before you move in.

    thx for the kind response, hadnt thought about the prepaid cards, i might be able to get one and load it closer to home, but i guess itl have to wait till tomorrow, ill stil try again with paypal but i doubt it works /shrug

    in any case, its just irritating as hell that it wasnt stated i can understand them wanting to secure subs, but not everyone likes or have credit cards

    Do you have a debit card? If so you can use it as a credit card. That's what I'm doing.

    A Debit Card can act exactly like a Credit Card so it should work. Well as long as it has a Credit Card logo like MasterCard or Visa which most do now a days.

    as far as i know the uk and the us are the only ones that have a debit card that can double as a credit card.
    I know for sure canada's debit cards are access to the bank account only.
