There needs to be more payment methods. . .
What About for the People Who dont have Bank Accounts But have a Post office accout (witch is the same as a bank account more or less here in the UK) You cant use your post office card for buying the Ap you need a credit card Now why would anyone who doesnt need a bank account because thy dont need one or have a post office card. why would thy go and open a bank account just to buy Ap on a game so Prepaid cards Would also solve this issue.
Also under ages can just use somone's credit card who is 18+
Same Way as thy Would get Someone who is over 18 to go in to a shop and buy a prepaid card.

Prepaid card for non creditcard holders!!
(Cant use post office card on paypal either for the person who was about to post ...well use paypal) Very Happy

This is a BIG Problem iv met Countess people Who want to buy AP but cant because of the Payment Methods because they own a different account such as a post office account or what ever they use where they are from because it doesnt give an option to use it as a payment method.

Could you Honestly see a somone opening up a bank account just to pay for AP on imvu i dont think also if they dont use the bank account it goes agiest your credit rating.

Travel agents and various other companies in the UK and globally sell prepaid credit cards. You go into to the office store or what ever apply for the card must be 18+ to get one as they are Visa or Mastercard or even Amex cards. You proved them with proof of id pay cash onto the card you can often pay this cash in as a foreign currency as the cards origanal idea was to be a safe to travel oversea's without carrying large sums of cash. The people owning them can't use them like a true credit card as they need money on it to use it and can't spend more on the card than they have paid into it. They can be topped up as and when needed. Most of these card types are excepted as the payment method because of the fact a person owning that card has already proved they are 18 and older and the card code will work for IMVU.

Warning not all types of these card will work this way for IMVU they can end up throwing up a message that it isn't can't tell what the card is.

As long as the card type has a number that IMVU's system detects as a credit card it will accept the payment if the first four digits to that card start a certain way IMVU has a problem with them. IMVU will also accept other method to pay for AP but only they will tell you what they are and how to go about it.

Paypal used to be a method (2006, early 2007 maybe), but I believe there is an issue with adult content being able to be sold in a 'mixed' community (minors and adults), so it was removed.

Other methods are by mail and money order.

On my alt, since I live nearby, I paid cash, and showed them my passport.

There are other ways to obtain the AP without the need for a credit card, if you file a help ticket under Billing, there is a category where you can ask what ways are available and what other information is needed to make the transaction go smoothly.

The Wal-Mart money card is a Visa. If you have a wal-mart money card you can get ap, thats how I did and to this day I use it to purchase credits as well. If you have a Wal-Mart near you or even in your country, Go get one

im not sure if u have ' 3v cards' in the uk,but thats what i used to buy my AP.
all you do is bring your card to the shops and ask for a 20Euro 3v voucher..on the voucher will be your disposable visa number that you will use as a CC number...u will either be emailed or texted the cvv2 and expiry date.
i love 3v,no risk of having your cc number being ripped off.


3v's website:
https://www.3v.ie/
here is another one:

the issue with prepaid cards is that here in the U.S you do not need to be an adult to buy them, you can go into a store, buy them and put money on them. a lot, like the My Plash prepaid visa is even marketed to teens.

Bank Accounts and actual credit cards are safer for IMVU to use as in general you have to be an adult to get them ( the only exception is parents who help their teen by signing up a bank account or giving a spare credit card to their teen. But at that point it is the parents responsibility and not IMVU's for not monitoring what their teens are doing with the card or account.)

so the limited payment options are in place for the safety of IMVU in case of someone trying to file a lawsuit. also remember that IMVU is mainly a U.S Based Company. I am not putting down this suggestion, it is good to let IMVU know what other potential payment options are out there, but when suggesting such things, think through how Adult Exclusive the payment options are.

Please note, I am using the term Teen and Adult.
1. Teens are not particularly children.
2. 18 is NOT the world standard for adulthood or consent.(something IMVU needs to realize and rectify. would be better to have it as "legal age in your area".)

even in the united states the legal age of consent is still somewhat based on state to state laws. (the 18+ comes mainly from the national standard of distribution of adult photos or videos).

I digress and sorry for rambling.
