All right, so, I'm a bit confused on the payment method. I know you can use the MyCards, but I'm a bit dazed on how I actually buy it. Can I have it shipped to America? Is it digital as well? I could get all this info myself if I could read Chinese, but I'm Chinese illiterate, and Google Translate isn't helping with its grammatical garbage that would make any grammar nazi throw a hissy fit.

So yeah, in a nutshell, on https://www.mycard520.com.tw/ how do I actually buy the cards? In what form do they come in? How much in $HKD/$USD does it cost for a card? Thanks a lot in advance.

First of all there are 2 different types of Cards for Taiwan available one is the MYCard and one is the official Taiwan Wow Card. Most of us buy the cards from Taiwan directly, Taobao (Chinese Ebay) or via online stores like UsGamers.

I buy the Twow 450 Game Card = 450 Taiwan Dollar = 10 Euro which is a 30 Day card, the price for mycard should be similar. I had problems buying them online from offgamers or Taobao so i get them straight from Taiwan.

In case you have chinese friends they can help you to order cards, most online cards are send via email (Card Number/PW).

Be carefull with the MyCard some people had problems to charge them, as far as i know WOW only supports charging via the 450 card and not the 150 card.

450Card = 30 days playtime from point of charge, will expire 30 days later even not played during that time
150Card = 150 Point card ~2 points charged via 1 hour (if i remember right), no expire date

Hi mate

The picture on Ebay shows the 150 Card and i dont think the 150 points last for 90days. This card works i also use them sometimes since i like that the points will not expire after 30 days so if u dont play so frequent its a better choice.

You can check on:
http://www.offgamers.com/world-of-warcraft/wow-tw/wow-mycard-c-16-2920-2922.ogm

The Blue Card on the top is the 450 TWow Card! They also sell MyCard but i suggest you to take the Twow card since some people had problems with the MyCard.

You can see the different cards there and can buy them online. I was not successful cause they wanted some additional information even i used paypal , for some other here in the forum it worked very well.
Maybe you should try it.

If I had a PayPal account. Or if I wasn't 12 years old. affraid

Then again, I can ask my mom but she'd be filled with skepticism because of all the stores about XBOX 360 scams and how people only sent the box.

Well, I don't think it's such a good idea for the following reason; the website you linked to also provides power-leveling and gold-selling services, and it might be crawling with viruses for the NA/EU version. I know people have trusted it before but my inner paranoid bastard doesn't trust it.

Also, on eBay, that was a 150 card? I thought I saw "1150", not 150, unless you're looking at something else.

It might be a 90 day card but i have seen them only with the lich king picture on it like you see it on off gamer. Sorry it was my mistake i didnt see the picture clear enough on my phone.

As you are already careful from your posts i would be also careful with the EBAY card but if you get it for 1 or 2 USD i bet its just the card and it was used before : )

I offer the same as Bazza if you find a way to pay us back we can buy you the cards in china.

I might be conceiving an extremely whimsical idea because I'm not sure if I can do it, but would you be able to accept a money order from Western Union if you e-mail me the code? I'm not proposing any action yet, just asking so don't go and buy the card just yet. Razz I doubt if the plan can even get to fruition. Mad That applies to you too, bazza.

Hi Mate

I just checked there are some banks which support WU in my city for money pick up. Personally i never used that service but it should work.

I am not in china until 3rd of October so before that i cannot help you.

You should check how much service fee you would pay and dont forget the exchange rate.
It might get more expensive compare to some other payment.

Now I learned that Western Union is nothing but a blatant fucking ripoff - the fee itself to Hong Kong is $25, and I'm only sending $5. What the **** is wrong with these people? Mad

But anyway, I can't get a PayPal account yet, and what the hell is a TT? pale

I'm not sure if that's available here in America. I'll check when I get back in a few hours.

I guess that was more than 12 hours.

I couldn't be bothered to look up TT.

BUT.

I discovered something called a Student PayPal account, which lets someone under the age of 18 have a PayPal. The catch is that my mom can monitor anything I use for it, and I'd rather not have her know because of her skepticism and pessimism surfacing, and it's not pretty when it erupts.

I guess I'll have to ask some relatives, and I can't do that until the 24th of October. Mad Surely they know what a K store or a 7-11 is.
