In absence of PayPal, a credit card is fine. In lieu of a credit card, Linden Lab also accepts linking payments as direct preauthorized withdrawwls from your bank account... however it sounds like you are set up correctly since you apparently have your credit card attached... but if not, there are many payment options available. If you remain unsure, there is always the billing number of Linden Lab you can call and a helpful staff member will assist you.

That's not quite correct, Peewee. LL will not use your $L balance to pay your $US obligations like Premium membership and tier fees. They will bill your payment method, either credit card or verified PayPal account. You can, however, sell $L on the Lindex to increase your $USD balance. LL will take money from your $USD balance before charging your payment method.

 

I like to use PayPal for several reasons. 1) LL does not accept all credit cards (for example, most prepaid cards). 2) Some credit card companies flag payments to LL as potential fraud, and you can get delayed or refused payments until you straighten them out. 3) You can limit your liability with PayPal by only keeping a small amount of money there and in the bank account that backs it up. 4) PayPal is a two way street...you can cash out profits from SL and transfer them to PayPal. You can't do that with your credit card.

Hi Lindal,

I think you must have misread what I posted, I never mentioned $L.

The link I posted is to increase your $US balance, which as we both stated is what LL will use to pay fees. ;)
