    Hey Insiders, you’re in for a treat.

    1200x628_01_v2.png

    Introducing zVault, our new unified digital wallet system that offers secure payment through zGold, and loyalty rewards through zSilver.

    Pay Securely, Receive Rewards –

    zGold is the main virtual currency for you to access a growing list of digital game stores and buy your games with. zSilver, on the other hand, is the loyalty currency that you will rack up by spending zGold. You can use it to redeem for rewards such as RazerStore discounts and even full Razer hardware.

    It is convenient, rewarding and all-in-all really easy to set up. All you need to do is to just:
    1. Link your Razer ID to zVault
    2. Confirm the verification process
    And you’re ready to make your first game purchase at any participating stores!

    To show you how easy it is, we’re inviting all our Razer Insiders (yes, this isn’t a world-wide release yet, if you’re on Insider or following our social you’re in!) to try out zGold and zSilver in an early access. There’re many promotions ongoing and they are only valid during this early access period.

    Firstly – just by connecting and verifying your zVault, you’ll get a starter pack of Bonus 100 zGold and 2,000 zSilver on us.

    We’ve prepared a slew of games that you can buy with this Bonus zGold, so that’s a neat first game that you can get just for trying out!

    Lastly, if you’re topping up more zGold and using this to checkout game purchases, we’re letting our Razer Insiders earn 2x the zSilver during this limited time period.

    There will be more on zVault along the way so remember to get your friends over to Razer Insider and learn what we have for you. We’ll also have more awesome promotions coming your way.

    We’ll also be around to answer any questions so feel free to drop them in this thread!

    Note to everyone, sign up and get verified before the 23rd and you get a free 100 zGold and 2000 zSilver.

    I will also say that I have not been a fan of razer's software, but for once the site for this is actually quite decently made. Mad props on that aspect, it would be interesting to see what comes of this for sure.

    Yeah, I'm still trying to figure out how to use zGold in Smite.

    There's no way that I can see. Nor to use it in Steam. Maybe on that indiegala site.

    Would love to sign up but the loading circle just goes round and round forever

    Just let it have a think, it should load eventually :) I thought it was my internet playing up again but it just takes a while!

    huh, really? I just logged into my Razer Id, not making an account, and it just logged in instantaneously. :confused_:

    Been stuck on this screen for pretty long. Maybe my account has some issues? Haven't been able to sign in to Razer Arena as well but other than that all else is fine.

    Happen to see anything in the dev console? Maybe that will help figure out what is wrong.

    Mine took about a minute, and I did refresh when it wasn't instantaneous the first time. But I can log into Arena no problems so they could be linked?

    Okay only managed to access the page after changing from Google Chrome to Opera.
    Now I am faced with another issue, after a successful login, the page redirects me back to a page where I have yet to login and requires me to log in again and again ._.

    All is fine when I log in on Razerzone and over here. Gonna have to write in to resolve this, hopefully it gets settled before 23rd.

    Interesting system.

    I was able to sign-in and verify without waiting for the spinning circle, hope you get it sorted out.

    I hope the Gamersgate website starts offering more games, it looks like they only have about 22 titles available right now. I am happy that most of the ones I checked out seem to offer Steam codes, so we won't need to be using another game collection system.

    I'm wondering if the Gamersgate prices will reflect Steam prices during the big sales, if so, I don't see a problem with loading up on zGold and spending money there to get extra rewards. :D

    P.S. I see that Indegala has a lot more games and also accepts zGold!

    Well I managed to sign up but there was a small line saying your wallet expires on. Anyone manage to catch that date. I just clicked through it so I didnt bother seeing it.

    People having issues with the loading wheel change browsers. Chrome has something wrong. Gives an unauthorized session error. I tried internet explorer and it worked for me.

    You can check your date by highlighting over the xGold, it should have a little pop up or something which says when it expires (it's feb 26th or something I think btw). Normally it doesn't expire at all, but that amount is promotional so yeah.

    That might have to do with cookies/cache, clearing it may help :)

    I had a look and I'm not really convinced yet. Most of the sites that accept gold are more expensive than other sites that Cortex lists for example.
    Hence, gaining silver = losing money.

    The other ways to collect silver probably won't be that interesting, UNLESS, they are going to tie Insider rewards to the same system, both the reward types and the gains from insider.

    You could also go to this site, log out (press the settings icon), and try logging in at zVault.

    Worked for me.

    Yeah I'm quietly confident that that's what's going to happen to our reward system, it seems too easy to just link them up and build up a currency, and they'll be wanting people to invest in it. It also allows for more regular rewards (daily login bonuses etc.) and also means they won't have to continuously update the rewards here, just the ones in that system :) I'm hoping it'll give very decent bonuses here to make up for not being able to score nice freebies with purchases!

    Oh and yeah I agree about spending gold to earn silver, so instead I'm just going to log in and save up until I can get some good stuff :)
