"PayPal will also soon be added in several regions as a payment option on Battle.net, providing another convenient and secure payment method for digital purchases of Blizzard products and services."

Will this include World of Warcraft subscriptions?

If someone doesn't want to use their credit card on battle.net, and doesn't want to purchase a game time card in a store, ($15/month $30/2 months), will the current World of Warcraft offerings: $13, $14, $15 for 1 month, 3 months, and 6 months, respectively, be offered through a Battle.net PayPal option?

Serious. Pretty sure the option's been there a long while, too.

They did say awhile back that you will have a b.net 'wallet' that can be used for subscriptions.

PayPal has been an available payment option for World of Warcraft accounts for some time. This announcement is that we're extending that partnership to our Blizzard Store as well - but more prominently - that PayPal will be the third party for most regions in which you'll cash out (should you choose) while using the currency based auction house.

Is this current? Like do you just login with your WoW account [on Battle.net] and PayPal is just offered there as an option, in the subscription webpage, etc.?

Yes, it's been available for a long time.

You can't however, use PayPal for extra services like Race Changes, etc (for some reason). But you certainly can for your WoW subscription. (maybe this new implementation is changing that?)

PayPal will charge you a standard fee (it's around 3%), but ONLY if you decide to cash the money out.

If you decide to keep the funds in your battle.net wallet, they get nothing.

Is the battle.net "wallet" currently manageable? The Blizzard Store can be browsed by 3 sections: Warcraft, Starcraft, Diablo.

I might have X dollars that I want to keep WoW subscriptions, but notice a neat item on the Diablo III auction house, but might not want to drive to the bank, at that split second, as I'd "have to have" said Diablo 3 item; maybe a new toy off the Blizzard Store, but because I might've forgotten that I started subscribing to WoW on the 17th of every month, +10 months later, I'd miss out on digital goodies.

Playstation Network store kinda has a wallet like this, but it'd be interesting to have three seperate sub-wallets for Warcraft, Starcraft, and Diablo.


From what I have heard, your wallet encompasses everything.

If you make a bunch of money on the RMAH, and want to put that towards a WoW sub, or an ingame WoW pet.. you can. It's hard to say until we see the system, if you can "reserve" money for certain things.

By "cashing out" do you mean transferring to your Credit Card or transferring to your PayPal credit balance?
