Direct Credit Card Payments Now Accepted!


After receiving plenty of helpful feedback from our customers, we have worked these past few months to implement new payment options for billing. First we introduced additional payment methods for purchasing Crysta, then user-specified amounts of Crysta, and now we're pleased to announce that customers can directly enter credit and debit card information to handle subscription payments. To access the new payment options, simply log into the Square Enix Account Management System!

We hope these new features help to make the FINAL FANTASY XI experience as fun and rewarding as possible.

Why do they always implement better payment methods a day or two after I have paid >.<

Honestly i think they're doing us a favor. I know people including myself who have had issues changing payment methods soon before being billed. Doesn't end well...this would give some time to get everything situated before the next round of billing. Saves a lot of headache!

I never changed my billing from the old system and its still working, If I go to this now, will I lose 5 days of 'game time' or will it not renew until the 1st?

paypal wasn't so bad, at least you don't have to worry about fraudulent charges with their system.

but the trick is now if I want to switch to this is to bring my crysta balance to 0... hmm...

I cant believe they never kicked me offline, I never changed my payment method. Time to finally make the swap. Lets hope there isn't another issue with paying for two accounts from one card. Fingers crossed.

Of course when they say "introduced" they mean "hired another company to process payments" but this time they've attempted to disguise it as their own service.

The payments are being processed on a site called https://na.gcsip.com which seems to be owned by a company called Global Collect.

They seem to have a better rep than Click and Buy after doing a few Google searches anyway.

I've almost always paid for more than one account from the same card, usually issues like that are from the bank's end.

Get a better bank...

My gf's small bank wouldn't let her pay something on paypal because the address was foreign, that's ridiculous in a global economy...

Is this new company a USA based business I wonder? Am I still going to have to warn my bank every 30 days that an overseas company is going to charge my account the same charge that's been coming out of it for the last 5+ years? I hope this works better for everyone :)

Wow amazing! I want to switch ASAP but I wonder if it means I'm still going to be billed on the same date?

SE has limited what you can purchase with the direct credit card. You can only use the credit card to pay for your monthly fees.

Security Tokens and additional game content can still only be purchased through Crysta or Click and Buy.

Right?!? Moving everything over sounded like a total cluster-*** from what I've read/heard. The last of the RL crew who still plays from Caisith (Errr...Ummm...Rag now?) got out of the whole transfer debacle. I wonder how he did it?

"Global Collect Services USA, Inc. is a registered ISO/MSP of Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., Walnut Creek, CA"

MSP = Member Service Provider

Yay Wells Fargo!

About frikkin' time. We'll see if their silly account "management" system rejects my cards, though. I just recently (finally) switched from Click & Buy and every card I tried returned errors from PlaySpan or whatever it's called. Blah.

It should work really easily. I switched just a while ago almost effortlessly, doesn't even make you go through that Verified by Visa crap. (Though my card already is VbV ready so who knows)

It only asks for Card Number, Expiration Date, and Security Code. One click after that and you're done! So, if you really wish, you could order a PayPal VISA debit card (free) and use that for this. :)

I've never changed my payment information since 2005...except to update the new card when it expires. Wonder why I was never deactivated...
