TOPIC | Upcoming Gem Purchase Changes
Hey everyone! We want to provide you with some notice about an [b]upcoming change to how gems are purchased[/b] on [i]Flight Rising[/i], and how we'll be implementing those changes. In the coming weeks, we will be implementing some [b]upgrades[/b] to our gem purchase system: [LIST] [*]We are expanding the ways you can purchase gems. [b]It will soon be possible to purchase gems with most major credit cards in addition to using Paypal.[/b] [*]Should one or both of our payment methods go down due to technical issues, the Gem Purchase page will properly notify you and prohibit gem sales from that method. [/LIST] [center][img]https://www1.flightrising.com/static/cms/media/BuyGemsNew.png[/img] [/center] Due to the sensitive financial nature of this particular set of changes, we are opting to roll out the new payment methods functionality very slowly. At first, only a handful of player accounts will be able to see and use the new system so that we can confirm everything is working normally. Over time, [b]we will slowly expand the pool of accounts that can use the system until it has been implemented site-wide[/b]. Starting with a small group first will allow us to fix any issues or provide any needed support (though hopefully not!) to affected players. At the moment, we don't anticipate any problems and have been doing extensive testing over the last few months to ensure that the roll-out is as smooth as possible. Thanks!
Hey everyone! We want to provide you with some notice about an upcoming change to how gems are purchased on Flight Rising, and how we'll be implementing those changes.

In the coming weeks, we will be implementing some upgrades to our gem purchase system:
  • We are expanding the ways you can purchase gems. It will soon be possible to purchase gems with most major credit cards in addition to using Paypal.
  • Should one or both of our payment methods go down due to technical issues, the Gem Purchase page will properly notify you and prohibit gem sales from that method.

Due to the sensitive financial nature of this particular set of changes, we are opting to roll out the new payment methods functionality very slowly. At first, only a handful of player accounts will be able to see and use the new system so that we can confirm everything is working normally. Over time, we will slowly expand the pool of accounts that can use the system until it has been implemented site-wide. Starting with a small group first will allow us to fix any issues or provide any needed support (though hopefully not!) to affected players.

At the moment, we don't anticipate any problems and have been doing extensive testing over the last few months to ensure that the roll-out is as smooth as possible.
