I'm assuming that you have has a payment method in file before and won't have to wait for the mandatory account credit waiting period that 1st time PMs have to bear when establishing a credit worthiness relationship with Linden Lab.

How to view or change your billing information

To view your billing information, see the Billing Information page on the Second Life website.

KBnote.png Note: For security reasons, you can only view the type of card affiliated with your account and the last four digits of the card number. You cannot view the full number. 

On the Billing Information page, you can view your current Linden dollar (L$) and US dollar balances, view and add US dollar payment methods for your account, and set which payment methods will be used for different types of purchases.

Adding a new payment method

To add a credit card, PayPal, or Skrill account to your Second Life account, click Add a Credit CardAdd a PayPal account, or Add a Skrill account. Follow the on-screen instructions to set up a billing agreement with PayPal or Skrill, or fill in your credit card information accordingly.

Once you have added a payment method, it is saved for your account and you can associate it with various types of payments.  See the next section for more information.

You can also add a new payment method during a transaction, when selecting a payment method.  If you add a credit card, PayPal account, or Skrill account in this way, it is automatically associated with the type of payment being made.

Associating payment methods with payment types

You may specify which payment method you would like to use for each of the following payment types:

  • Buying L$ in the Viewer
  • Buying L$ on the web
  • Buying land, Premium fees, recurring fees

To associate a payment method, go to the How you're paying section of the Billing Information page and click Change next to the payment method you would like to use, then check boxes next to your desired payment types on the provided list.

You may remove this association at any time by clicking Change next to the payment method, then un-checking the boxes next to the associated payment types.

You can also change an associated payment method during a transaction by choosing a different payment method or adding a new payment method for that transaction.

Changing stored payment information

To change stored information about one of your payment methods, you must delete that payment method and re-enter it.  You may delete a stored payment method by clicking Remove next to that payment method on the Billing Information page.

VAT and changing your billing country

Your selected country determines the payment methods available to you.  Normally, you should not need to change your billing country, but you may need to update it if you are travelling or have moved to a new location.  You can change your billing country by clicking the Change button next to your country's name on the Billing Information page.

If your billing country is a member of the European Union, you may be subject to the collection of value added tax (VAT).  If you are a business and are reselling, or adding value to Second Life before providing it to a consumer, you are eligible to provide your EU-issued VAT ID number in order to be excluded from the collection of VAT.  If you see "Subject to VAT" under your billing country's name on the Billing Information page, you can add your exception by clicking Add VAT Exception and providing your ID.
