Good news for those who prefer pay to play when it comes to customizing your virtual avatar and abode – Fantage (one of the fastest-growing virtual playgrounds for kids, and a TriplePoint client) has a fancy new microtransaction system, as well as a new BilltoMobile payment option.
Why microtransactions? The Fantage eCoin system was created specifically because of requests from exhausted parents. Before, kids would often ask their parents to play games on their behalf, in order to earn more Stars and purchase virtual items. Fun as the games may be, eventually moms were calling Fantage to ask “Can’t we just buy Stars?” Parents themselves, the Fantage team heard these requests loud and clear, and so the eCoin system was born.
What’s all the fuss? eCoins enable all Fantage users to buy in-game virtual items that were previously available only to Premium Members. That means all users can purchase everything from costumes and hoverboards, to furniture, clothing and digital stickers, using the eCoin system.
What is Fantage? Founded in 2007, Fantage is a next-generation destination site for children. Fantage games and adventures entertain and delight children, and promote positive social interaction in an engaging, exciting, safe environment that both kids and parents love. Fantage also provides an age-appropriate, safe social networking experience within a fun virtual world.
