Ukash® partners with Eve Online

LONDON - Ukash®, the global e-Money company has teamed up with CCP Games, publisher/ developer of the hugely popular sci-fi MMORPG Eve Online, to offer players an alternative in-game payment solution.

Ukash® is a convenient, safe and secure way to pay online. There’s no need to share personal details and users don’t need a bank account or card to use Ukash®. UK EVE Online players of any age can now use Ukash® to;

Buy game time – options include 1,3 6 and 12 monthly packages

Buy PLEX – an in-game item that can be used to pay for subscriptions without using more traditional payment methods

Pay for a character transfer – players can transfer one character of an active account onto another account

Ukash® works by exchanging notes and coins for a unique 19-digit Ukash® code at over 40,000 outlets in the UK including many newsagents and corner stores. The unique code can then be used to pay directly on over 5,000 websites that accept Ukash® worldwide.

Users simply need to visit the payment page and choose the 'Ukash®' option from the list of payment methods. Then type in the 19-digit code and the value. If the purchase is less than the value of Ukash® code, change is given in the form of a new Ukash® code to use against future purchases or to combine with other Ukash codes.

Ukash® is a fast-growing payment option for gamers and is already accepted in hundreds of online games including Drakensang Online, Battlestar Galactica Online, Runescape, Dark Orbit and Entropia Universe. Ukash® is also accepted in a number of major online gaming portals including gPotato, Gala-net and Gameforge as well as virtual world Habbo Hotel. Ukash® can also be used to purchase Facebook credits.

EVE Online is a spectacular, captivating gaming experience where hundreds of thousands of players compete within the same virtual cosmic universe for riches, power, glory and adventure. In EVE, players can create and live out their most virtuous or sinister dreams, piloting starships through a futuristic galaxy featuring a sophisticated, player-run economy and a solar system rife with treasures to be discovered. With professions ranging from commodities trader to mercenary, industrial entrepreneur to pirate, mining engineer to battle fleet commander and more, EVE players have access to a diverse array of tools and interfaces to forge their own exhilarating path. EVE has an in-game currency called ISK (Interstellar Kredits) which players use to buy and sell items such as spaceships and goods such as new spaceships and raw materials.
