Donations - Manually
UO Evolution Shard is a F2P mmorpg game, directed by it's staff, supported by it's players and funded by it's donators. All donations will be used to pay server costs, update the content and upgrade the hardware. Read my Donation Philosophy
Legal Notice: Donations are considered gifts to the shard and are not for any tangible items or merchandise. When you are donating to the shard you are giving money to support a hobby gaming site, not purchasing anything of value.
Use this button to donate any amount you choose. Paypal will send UOE a text alert and we will visit you asap. After you donate, please page in-game with your acct name AND your player name to alert us of your donation.
Donation Subscriptions help the shard budget expenses each month and are greatly appreciated. As a reward for doing a monthly subscription you will receive DOUBLE Evolution Dollars each month along with the current month's bonus items for that tier!
Bill Me Later Option - Paypal Credit
There is a new Paypal Credit option which allows players to Donate a higher amount to get the bonus items. They give you a line of credit to break up the payment into smaller amounts. Look for the option when you sign into Paypal.
PayPal gives you more buying power - Players can buy more when they can pay over time. With PayPal, you get access to financing for 6 months on purchases of $99 or more. Subject to credit approval.
How do I start using PayPal Credit?
Select PayPal Credit as your payment choice during checkout. You'll be asked to provide your date of birth and the last 4 digits of your Social Security number, and then to agree to the terms and conditions to apply for a PayPal Credit account. You'll know within seconds if you are approved. And here's the cool thing: link your PayPal Credit account to your PayPal account and you'll see it as a payment option when you check out with PayPal.
Donate through SQUARE
If you don't have a Paypal account, we can take a single credit card payment through SQUARE. We would need your name, credit card number, cv # on the back of the card and the billing zip code to process the card (contact Dante directly).
If you don't have a credit card, you can buy a gift card and seems to work well, it's good for foreign transactions as well
Donate through BITCOIN
We are experimenting with taking Bitcoin as a donation. If you would like to do this please contact Dante. Here are the steps to donate using Bitcoin:
1. Go to www.bitcoin.com and create a wallet
2. Fund the Bitcoin Account with a credit card or bank acct
3. Send Bitcoin to UO Evolution's Bitcoin wallet
Send to this address: 15Kj7oFpqnd9K4CCBNP4RU75Few2exLTQ4
4. Contact Dante in-game with the details and amount. This transaction can take from 10 minutes to an hour to be received
5. The fees seem to vary greatly (I would not use bitcoin for small amounts) You may need to research this and find an accurate way to determine fees, it has been different each transaction
Store Gift Cards
Many players ask us to accept gift cards from various stores. We DO ACCEPT most gift cards from Walmart, Target, Amazon etc. Make sure you check with Dante to confirm that the card works and get approval.
We can also take Visa/MC gift cards with Square, see above info
Evolution Dollars(ED) is a virtual type of currency you receive when you donate as a token of our appreciation and shard support. ED can also be obtained in-game by participating in select staff run events, auctions, voting, purchasing from players and in special monster loot. Evolution Dollars have no real monetary value and are used in game for accounting purposes.
ED is exchanged in a 10 to 1 Ratio
$1 = 10ED
- Evolution Dollars can be redeemed in game at the white vendor stones located at Trinsic and Britain banks. Make sure when you donate you send us your character name AND account name so we can identify you.
- Evolution Dollars/Donations are non-refundable and have no cash value.
