This is for Randomos and anyone who may know...has there been any progress in setting up an alternative to credit card payment for GameTap? I am anxious to subscribe, support both URU and Game Tap but still would hope to have an alternative. I understand that such innovations may take time with a large organziation and will certainly find a way to make work out if nothing can be done before launch of URU, but wanted to ask humbly if there has been any progress on this? Thanks for all that is being done for this great launch and I do not mean in any way to show any lack of appreciation, just wondered about this one little thing. Thank you again and Shorah. :D

PayPal uses your checking account. If you have a checking account with any decent bank you should have a Visa or MasterCard debit card, which can be used to order GameTap, and has safety features built in to protect you from fraudulent charges.

I ordered some new computer stuff and was sent repacks instead and my money was put back in my account within 2 hours of my call to the number on the back of my card.

Alternatly for those who are under age. Have your parents get you a refillable bank gift card and use that. ( just make sure the money has been added to the card before each billing cycle. ) Banks issue these as VISA or MasterCard gift cards and they are good anywhere either of those cards accepted.

NOTE: When using any card for purchases on the internet make sure the web site is secure. There should be a padlock symbol visible on the bottom bar of your browser while connected to the secure ordering server.

I second what you said about the Visa accounts for kids. I used a VISA Buxxs account for my daughter on a trip she took a while ago.

It was easy to set up, and I could "refill" the account by online transfers from my own MasterCard or checking account. Plus, I could monitor each expense item as it was incurred. I won't go so far as to say that knowing I was monitoring the account and her expenses was any deterrent, but she did use it fairly responsibly, for a 13 year old on a school trip out of town.

Here is a Visa Buxx site to get a feel for how it all works. Visa Buxx

:D
