    Deposit Methods Update

    Unfortunately, due to a change in Paypal's policies regarding e-currencies and virtual currencies, PayPal will no longer be offered as an option for deposits to or withdrawals from Entropia Universe.

    MindArk is actively pursuing potential additional payment providers, which may also include cryptocurrency payment options. Some of the providers we are exploring include: Neteller, Skrill, Utrust, and TransferWise.

    As an alternative to PayPal, MindArk recommends using the bank or wire transfer deposit option, which is the most cost-effective method to deposit funds into Entropia Universe for deposits of $400 or more.

    Finally, please be aware that MindArk does not collect or store any of the credit/debit card information, card holder information, or personal information provided when making a webshop purchase or deposit into Entropia Universe; all such information is handled by DIBS, a very secure and highly-regarded payment processor.

    And there you have it folks, no more PayPal

    Thank you for the communication and update! And hopefully some of those other deposit/payment methods pan out.

    Such a shame...
    Takeaway Truth:
    Forget ideology. They betray. They limit. They lead astray. Just deal with the raw data and trust yourself. Nobody is smarter than you are. And what if they are? What good is their understanding doing you? People walk around saying ‘Well, I don’t understand quantum physics but somewhere somebody understands it’. That’s not a very helpful attitude towards observing the insights of quantum physics. Inform yourself. What does inform yourself mean? It means transcend and mistrust ideology. Go for direct experience. What do YOU think when YOU face the waterfall? What do YOU think when YOU have sex? What do YOU think when YOU take psilocybin? Everything else is unconfirmable rumor, useless, probably lies. So, liberate yourself from the illusion of culture. Take responsibility for what you think and what you do.”

    DIBS seems to be a Swedish company with further locations in Denmark and Norway. So no FBI, CIA, MI5, GCHQ, ASIS, CSIS.

    But, who knows...

    Its unfortunate that paypal is not longer available but the mentioned payment processors are decent alternatives if you're willing to take your time to explore them and register an account. Tbh i believe paypal got too big and ending up in a monopoly at one point isn't good for companies and customers alike, so im more than glad to give other payment processors a try.

    Especially Skrill is a very popular payment processor and their rapid transfer option enable you to link your bank account to the payment processor and make direct purchases. Its different from paypal tough but its way more safer for Mindark because its harder to charge back money deposited trough this method compared to paypal.

    Im not a fan of crypto currencies but i guess some are and netteller offers some nice options to pay with some of the more popular cryptos for a 2.5% - 3.0% fee.

    We got some nice alternatives here and im all about having options to choose how to deposit money so im happy about that selection. Most of them come with additional deposit fees but we got them on paypal aswell and we can still wire transfer money directly to mindark to make sure to get the most peds for our bucks.

    Im very glad and all thats left is for mindark to finalize their negotiations and start offering the new payment options. I really hope it wont take too long

    BUT

    While its cool to get more variety to deposit mindark is still leaking in withdraw alternatives. I truely hope that you guys at mindark wont stop here and give us some more options to withdraw while you at it!

    Bank transfer for box or keys purchase ?

    I'm quite sceptical....it's a terrible news. Seriously.

    It's time to implement new payments methods, what about alipay or WeChat pay ?

    MA should use Bitpay if they don't want to hold Bitcoin.

    P.S. Don't use Coinbase, they don't like Bitcoin transactions involved with gambling.
