On Tuesday 13th January Linden Lab announced an update on Additional Payment Options for Second Life through a partnership with Skrill. Like buying L$ or paying account fees and local currency options for residents outside the US.
This is the first announcement of 2015 for Linden Lab. Yay! 🙂
Apparently Linden Lab rolled out a first soft launch of this a few weeks ago and the lab have seen positive results so far. So far so good it seems and in the blog post the lab would like to enable credits to be processed (redemptions to Second Life Skrill accounts in the near future.
Here is the full blog post by Linden Lab…
As you may have seen, a company called Skrill recently announced that we’re working together to provide additional payment options for Second Life users. Our relationship with Skrill allows Linden Lab to offer Second Life Residents many more options for their payment activity (like buying L$ or paying account fees), including additional local currency options for Residents outside the US.
We first soft-launched the Skrill options for payments a few weeks ago, and we’ve seen positive results so far as those interested in alternative payment methods have successfully taken advantage of the new options. If you’d like to check it out, using Skrill’s options for Second Life payments is as easy as using a credit card. All you need to do is login atSecondLife.com, click “Billing Information” under “Account,” and then select “Add a Skrill Account” to begin using Skrill for your Second Life payments.
In the future, we hope to also enable credits to be processed (redemptions) to Second Life Residents’ Skrill accounts. Keep an eye on this blog for more info!
