Recurring Subscription

Subscriptions will automatically recur at your chosen rate (monthly, every three months, or every six months) using your preferred method of payment until paused or canceled. You can pause or cancel your subscription at any time.

Add a Subscription

When using a credit card for the first time, your credit card or bank statement will show two charges for the same order. However, you will pay only once. The first charge is called authorization hold and is a common banking practice. The authorization hold is automatically refunded within 2-3 business days. Only your financial institution can remove an authorization hold.

Updating a payment method on a subscription will require to select a new plan. Based on the offer selected, you may be charged when updating the plan. Please review each checkout step to confirm whether you will be billed on game time expiration or when changing your plan.

To view your subscription history, visit your Transaction History page.

Digital Game Time

If you want to play without a recurring subscription, you can purchase digital game time. If you later add a subscription, you will not be billed until your current active game time runs out.

Buy Game Time

Digital game time can also be gifted. When you buy digital game time as a gift, a code will be sent to the recipient's email once your order is complete.

Prepaid Game Card

Prepaid game cards can be purchased in local Game Stores and works similarly to digital game time — payment is not recurring.

Redeem a Code

Game cards must match the region of your World of Warcraft account. In addition, game cards must be activated by the seller at the register.

Note: Your card might actually be for Balance, not Game Time. If claiming the card does not grant Game Time check your Balance, which you can then use to buy digital game time. Balance

It is not possible to pay a recurring subscription with Balance, but you can use Balance to buy digital game time.

WoW Tokens

You can add 30 days of game time by consuming a WoW Token purchased with gold.
