Effective immediately, IMVU customers will be able to purchase Access Pass by using a Credit Card in our Credit Store. The regular price for the pass is $19.99 and purchasing via this payment method will not require age verification prior to getting AP. Customers who buy AP via Credit Card will get a free Age Verification Token so they can verify their age afterwards if they choose to do so.

So now, AP can be purchased in two ways:

1) Purchase Age Verification Token (regular price of $5.00) using all available payment methods such as SMS, Paypal, IMVU Prepaid Card, Credit Card, etc. Then verify your age using our online process and proceed to get Access Pass for 20,000 Credits. This was the payment process announced on March 8, 2013.

2) Purchase Access Pass directly and instantly with a Credit Card without first completing Age Verification. This was the process that was available to IMVU community prior to March 8th. Age verification token will be included with the Access Pass can be used to verify the age as an option.

We hope this makes becoming part of the Access Pass community easier for all our 18+ customers from around the world.

Thank you.

Then why removing the old system to put it again? It would have been easier just add the 1) to the current existing one.. now users who bought AP using the token system will become pissedd off because they didn't have this choice and they paid more to get AP.

System 1) costs around $25

System 2) costs $20 (let's throw away that cent)

As about this..

*MOD hat off*

This is just a way to give everyone the opportunity to purchase AP who is 18+, its better to have more ways to buy then only one. It is a smart business decision in my personal opinion. With any change there are tweaking and fixing, I look at this as just another fix for problems that have come up. Smile

Also as to it making it easier, I don't believe it will do this. IMVU still have protective measures in place to stop this, but lets be honest, nothing is going to stop them completely, but IMVU as always will try to perfect the screening process.

There are a already a lot of ways to purchase the AV token and purchase the 20k without a credit card.

With the token system it was even hard to get AP for users who were 18+ and now, even a baby can get AP asking the mom for the credit card.

Does this need to be that extreme? Or IMVU makes get age verified hard as hell, or IMVU gives the chance to get AP to everyone (including fake users). I think that just make the token system a bit less strict was enough.

Prepare yourself to see kids with AP again.

Obviously the lost revenue generated from "some users" buying AP was just too much for the shareholders to accept.

The idea was to VERIFY AGE first then allow to buy AP. Now you will have the underage buying AP again....NOT GOOD....

At last! I am 48 yo living in Greece and the Age verification institute did not accepted my id for age verification because it was hadwritten. Excuse me but 30 years before (when i got my id card) there was no pcs Laughing The funny thing is that with this id card I opened a bank account, vote in elections and do all my social actions. I also think that its harder for a kid to convince their parents to get their credit card than just to copy their passport number. What will happen for these people that purchased the age verification token and the institute denied to aprove their age? I think that they should have a discount in AP ticket or be automatically aged verified.

I think this is the reason they brought the payment type back. Issues with the age verification.

Although I would prefer that all AP accounts be age verified, I can understand the business decision.

With all the complaints about the age verification process not working, they had to do something.

The token system just needed a good fix.

Why over 13? A ten year old can do it just as easy now again if they get access to one of their parents credit cards...

Lol, so true ... no matter how much we hope they have turned over a new leaf, they never fail to act true to form.
