Since the transfer of accounts from Playonline to the Square Enix Account system, the different payment options available for streamlined service was a subject of constant discussion. As a follow up to the November 24th announcement of allowing for people to purchase specific Crysta amounts, today it was announced that players will now be able to be billed directly from their credit or debit cards.
Full details on the upcoming change can be found below the break, and if you want to share your opinions about this announcement, feel free to do so on the ZAM forums!
After receiving plenty of helpful feedback from our customers, we have worked these past few months to implement new payment options for billing. First we introduced additional payment methods for purchasing Crysta, then user-specified amounts of Crysta, and now we're pleased to announce that customers can directly enter credit and debit card information to handle subscription payments. To access the new payment options, simply log into the Square Enix Account Management System!
We hope these new features help to make the FINAL FANTASY XI experience as fun and rewarding as possible.
