Rixty and Facebook have announced that you can now purchased Facebook credits through Rixty. Rixty is an online service that allows players to purchase virtual currency for use in 100s of MMOs and social games.
Speaking on the partnership is Joel Andren, director of marketing for Rixty: (As quoted by Social Times)
I think there’s a lot of very social or more casual users who will identify with the opportunity to pay with cash and coins. I think it will give us a boost in terms of working within the social and casual game space. Now we’re going to be in front of millions of Facebook users. It’ll definitely provide us a chance to show our value to a huge population. Twenty-five percent of that population or more doesn’t have a credit card but wants to do the same things online that their friends do.”
According to the Social Times report, 70 percent of Rixty users do not having a credit card. So having said that, it sounds like a good partnership for those that do not have a credit card but also want to grab some Facebook credits.
