Payment Methods

A telephone, an overflowing purse, and a mobile telephone

We offer a variety of methods for subscribing to our games. The following summaries of each payment option will help you to decide on the best method for you.

Credit Card

The Global Collect logo

Players, or parents of players, can subscribe using their credit card. This is usually the cheapest way to subscribe, although the cost depends on the country you are subscribing from. Payments are often, but not always, instantaneous, and are taken once every month until the subscriber decides to cancel. This is taken when the account reaches three days of credit to ensure continuous access to the member benefits, should we encounter any difficulties in taking the payment. Users can cancel a credit card subscription at any time via the Runescape or FunOrb websites, and the encryption system makes this a very secure payment method. Our PCI DSS compliance ensures the security of your details. This method can be used worldwide by holders of Visa, Visa Delta and Mastercard credit cards, and by users of JCB, Visa Electron, Maestro and Solo in the UK.


The PayByCash logo

The PayByCash system covers a number of different payment methods, including bank transfer, Splash Plastic and Western Union, and the cost of subscribing varies depending on the method you choose and the length of membership you require (up to 12 months membership can be added). Your membership will not be activated immediately, and the processing period will depend on the payment option you choose. If you choose to pay by Direct Debit, you can cancel your payments; otherwise the subscriptions are one-off payments. PayByCash can be used worldwide.


PayPal Logo

PayPal is a popular method of payment for those that want a secure, quick and easy way of paying for goods and services. You can use a verified PayPal account to buy one, two, three, six or twelve months of membership. Each payment is a one-off, so you will need to make a new payment to re-subscribe. PayPal is available worldwide.

We also offer payments through unverified PayPal accounts, but these are limited to one-month subscriptions and monthly recurring agreements. Each unverified PayPal account can be linked to only one player account.

This system can be accessed by sending a text message to our PayBySMS service to obtain a PIN. This PIN can be redeemed on our websites after a 15 minute delay, and each PIN provides you with one month of membership credit.

Paymo logo

You can also pay via SMS with Paymo. To pay using Paymo, you enter your mobile phone number into our website, and you receive a text message confirming the price of your subscription. You then reply to the text message to confirm your payment. This will provide you with one month of membership. The cost of your membership will be added to your mobile phone bill if you have a contract, otherwise it will be taken from the credit on your phone. Your network provider may also apply standard text messaging charges. This service is currently available only in the USA.
