Wire transfers

Anyone can put money on account by sending Linden Lab a bank wire. If you wish to set up a wire transfer, please read and follow the instructions below carefully.

If you are wiring money to pay for a Private Region (island), you should wire the money before ordering through the land store, or place a special order through our invoicing system. Delivery time for Private Regions ordered through our invoicing system is longer than through the land store. If you choose to use our invoicing system, you will need your invoice number in order to complete the wire transfer.

To wire funds into your Second Life account, you must transfer the funds to Linden Lab's bank. Once you submit a support case for a wire transfer (explained below), we provide you with the information necessary to complete the transfer. Initiate the transfer with your bank promptly to avoid delays in delivery of your funds and processing of any Private Region orders.

32px-KBnote.png Note: Because of the high fees we incur for wiring funds, there is a US$25.00 transfer fee. There is also a minimum amount (US$100.00) required to credit your account. If, for example, you want to put US$100.00 on account with us, you'll need to wire us US$125.00.

Wires can take up to five business days to post to your account, possibly longer for international transfers. Funds transferred must be in US$ currency.

To submit a request for a wire transfer:

  1. Go to the Second Life Support Portal and make sure you're logged in.
  2. Click Submit a Support Case.
  3. Under What type of problem are you having? select Billing.
  4. From the Billing dropdown, select Other Billing Issues.
  5. Fill in the fields that appear and click Submit.

Information for international wires

Please ensure Linden Lab's account accepts the foreign currency you are wiring. International foreign currency wires are generally less expensive as compared with international US$ wires.

If you do not have a payment method that is accepted by Linden Lab, you may still be able to buy $L on a reputable third party exchange site.  I like VirWox, but there are others as well.  Just make sure the site you choose uses the "Linden Lab Exchange Risk API."  Do NOT ever buy $L from someone on eBay, they are often scams.
