    You can now subscribe to your favourite streamers using zGold! For those who are not too interested in Indie games, or getting new cosmetics on F2P games, a new option has opened! You can now Pay with Razer on Twitch!

    Basically you can earn zSilver by subscribing, for those still looking to make that last little push towards 100,000 for the mug! Talk about earning a little back!

    If anyone wants help setting this up, let me know, I'll do a guide!

    Quick guide:
    Go to your favourite partnered Twitch streamer, and find this funny looking button

    Next, click on the payment frequency you wish to make
    On the next screen, you will have to choose options, click on Show More Methods
    and finally you will see Razer.[​IMG]
    The rest of payment process is pretty straight forward if you've paid with zGold before!

    Didn't know this was added, But this is very cool! Can't wait too see what other programs and sites like Twitch start to accept ZGold too.

    It's a "little-big" step for this virtual currency, maybe other companies will apply it after twitch :) I hope so.
  7. Awesome!! Thanks!

    Hello, thanks for the guide but zGold don't show up for me. I live in Italy, could this be the problem ? Thank you very much.

    The problem is zGold isn't virtual currency, it's a service, maybe in US it works but in EU it's not a deal. I need to pay for zGold with 20% vat and then buy a service using zGold (for example twitch sub) and pay another vat so basically i need to pay 40% vat (so sub gonna cost me 7$ instead of 6$ with other payment method) for using zgold, with such small deal it's not a difference but if you think about spending 100$ it's basically 20$ wasted. Until they resolve this issue if ever i sadly won't use this because it doesn't make sense as much as i would like to get more zsilver

    Yeah, it is a small issue, 20% VAT is far too much extra, especially when every site is also trying to add VAT on. I'm paying close to £30 for $30 of zGold, which just doesn't seem justified.
    $30 = £23.15 at the current time
    £23.15 + 20% VAT = £27.78

    Currently, zGold is best for the US at the minute, until tax can be removed, but I don't think it likely will.

    It may be that, UK is fine, still have to pay in USD though so not sure why it doesn't apply?

    This is pretty awesome. I'll not switch to it before it gets a bit more popular, but I'm definitely considering it :)

    Is it the same ratio with zgold to zsilver as buying games. Like 4200 zsilver for 3000 zgold?
  14. PigeTheGreat

    PigeTheGreat Member

    That's the deal, it's spend 3000 zgold to get 4200 silver, doesn't specify on what!

    "Rack up more zSilver when you checkout your online game purchases using Razer zGold, based on the following minimum zGold spend tiers per transaction only"

    It does acually say that you get zsilver when you checkout your online game purchase... So i wasnt sure about it.
  16. PigeTheGreat

    My bad, I don't see why any transaction would be treated differently.
    That being said, I just tested it
    Still works out with the same deal, so you can go ahead with it if you were wondering about receiving the zSilver!
