Update as of March 22nd: Now buying the age verification token is even more flexible in terms of payment options. All IMVU prepaid cards can now be redeemed for an option that includes Credits + Age Verification Token. Go here to redeem a card or find out where to get one in your area!

Update as of March 15th: Now you can buy Age Verification Token with your phone. Go here to purchase!

Effective immediately - as of March 8th, 2013 - we are changing the requirements and method of payment for purchasing Access Pass. Access Pass community continues to be open to IMVU users 18 and older, however, now you must first purchase a Age Verification Token and verify your age before being able to purchase Access Pass. The Age Verification Token can be purchased from IMVU for $5.00 and Access Pass can be purchased from IMVU for 20,000 Credits.

We are excited to have made being part of the AP community simpler, more flexible and safer for our community. Many of our current AP members have asked us for this change so they can be confident that their AP interactions are with other age-verified adults and we have listened! Many of our non-AP adult community members have also requested more flexible ways to pay for AP and we listened to that request too!

Please note that if you already have Access Pass then this change does not affect you.

Here is how Access Pass can now be purchased as of March 8, 2013


1) Go to the Access Pass page from the navigation bar menu option (if you do not already have AP) or by clicking on the red AP badge found on AP users' profiles.



2) You will see information about purchasing Age Verification Token on the left side of the page:





Click on Buy Age Verfication Token to proceed to IMVU's Credit Store

3) Purchase your Age Verification Token - now available for only $5.00 in the Credit store. You can pay for the AVT using any of the payment methods available in the store.



4) Once your order is complete, you can provide required information to verify your age. Simply go to the Access Pass page and click on Get Your Age Verified option.



You will prompted to fill an online form with your information required to verify your age by our partner - Integrity by Aristotle, a trusted industry leader in age verification technology.

Once you have provided the required information, you will receive confirmation that you have been age verified - in most situations this will be almost instantaneous and without any further steps. In certain cases, you may be asked to upload your ID document and/or contact our Help center for manual verification.

5) Once age verified, you will be able to purchase Access Pass for only 20,000 IMVU Credits. Not enough Credits? Simply purchase them in the Credit store and then proceed to get Access Pass.

Once you click on Buy Access Pass option, 20,000 Credits will be deducted from your IMVU account balance and you will be awarded Access Pass. You will receive a sticker and the AP badge will be displayed on your profile.





You can now enjoy unlocking the AP-exclusive part of the IMVU experience available to age verified adults 18 and older.

Thank you!

FAQs about AP purchase effective March 8, 2013

1] What is Access Pass?

Access Pass allows IMVU members who are 18 and older to be part of a community within the community. AP members can access AP-exclusive section of our Shop and interact with other AP holder adults in AP-only Chat Rooms, Groups and Forums.

Please visit our Access Pass page for more details.

2] How old do you have to be get Access Pass?

18 or older.

3] What are the requirements for buying Access Pass?

Effective today, you will first need to be age verified and then need 20,000 Credits to get AP.

4] What if I already have Access Pass?

Today's change does not affect you.

5] What if I already own Age Verification Token?

You can proceed to get your age verified and then purchase AP if you desire.

6] What if I am already age verified and want to purchase AP?

You can purchase it with 20,000 Credits without repeating the age verification step that you have previously completed.

7] What is the price of Age Verification Token? And how do I pay for it?

$5.00 (US). You can use any of the payment methods available in our Credits Store including SMS (paying with your phone)

8] Where can I buy Age Verification Token?

Only from IMVU in our Credit Store.

9] Can I use Promotional Credits to buy AP?

No. 20,000 IMVU Credits must be used.

10] Can I be age verified if I do not reside in the US?

Yes. Our age verification partner's service is available globally. If our verification partner is unable to verify your age automatically, you will be given instructions on manually verifying your age.

11] Can I still purchase Access Pass with a Credit Card?

No. Going forward purchasing of AP will only be with 20,000 Credits and only if you are an age-verified adult (18+).

12] What if I have a Age Verification Token that I got when I bought AP?

Previously purchasing Access Pass meant you got a free age verification token. You can use it going forward to verify your age if you choose to do so - you are not required to. If you do, you do not need to pay for the token again.

13] Who is the partner providing age verification service for IMVU?

Integrity by Aristotle.

would it be possible to use a imvu cash card of any sort that can be used to get credits towards age verification in the future?

Not quite understanding your question.

Age Verification Token can not be purchased with Credits. However it can be paid for with any payment method available in our store right now.

Once age verified, AP itself can be purchased with 20K Credits. Those credits can be purchased with any available method, earned with offers/catalog sales etc.

like if we was to buy a 10$ imvu cash card then use that to buy Age Verification but now that i think of it we could just get a pre paid visa or master card for people who don't own a credit card or paypal.

I think the questiion was can the IMVU prepaid cards be used to buy Age Verification.

Personal note what a bad idea this is it's already too easy to end up with minors getting verified on adult ID as it is this just now means even more kids will be able to get on even easier and be even sneakier with it. Rolling Eyes

Why bother having AP thats meant to be for the mature members when this makes it even easier to obtain by minors.

Age verified is nonsense to be bought with a prepaid card.

You want to stop underaged kids getting it but you offer IMVU prepaid cards to get it? Then any underaged could go into the nearest store and get Age verification and AP.

Reminder:

This is not about how you pay for age verification token. The important change is once you have the token, you have to go through the age verification process on our site or via manual uploading of IDs before you can get AP.

Thank you.

We know that and we know only to well the fact that ID forms sent into IMVU to get a account verified for an age doesn't prove for a single second that the person who sent in the info is the actual person. Having reported more than enough minors who've admitted to using adult ID's to get a hold of AP you've effectively handed them it on a plate now.

Age verification token can be bought for $5.00. Actual age verification is online and typically very quick in most cases. In some situations, you may be required to contact our help team. Once age verified, purchasing of AP is instantaneous as long as you have 20,000 Credits in your account.

so Varsha

how will this effect the people who have to buy the AP with Check/Money Order?

I mean if you no longer take credit card payments for the AP will they still be able to buy the AV token by mail, as well as the $20 fee for the AP itself?

We no longer accept and have not been accepting for a couple months, cash, check or moneyorder as a method of payment for anything - that will include age verification.

So the only way to get AP now would be purchasing AV by credit card, and the two options for AP (20$ or 20k credits) afterwards, right?
