BlackBerry World + Gift Cards

[ Edited ]

There's no gift cards for BB World, is there?  If my son wanted to purchase something in his app world... how would he do this? (he has a curve... 9760 or something)

 

WIth all this music on the z10.. I would love a gift card for xmas, myself

Re: BlackBerry World + Gift Cards

I wish there were gift cards too, but for now there are other options.

You can use PayPal.  You don't have to have a credit card if you don't want to, in order to set up a PayPal account.

You can transfer money into the PayPal account from your bank account.

Or, you can use a credit card directly with BlackBerry World.

See the PayPal website for details.

My son doesn't have PayPal or a credit card.

Do you think his BB ID, within the app world, would let him buy on my credit card? I haven't tried, assuming it wont because the card is not in his name.   I think to buy on credit card, the purchaser needs to match the BB ID?

Re: BlackBerry World + Gift Cards

You should be able to create a PayPal account, either in your name or his, set up to pay on your credit card, or via bank account transfer if you prefer. (You can deposit a set amount in a PayPal account, if you don't want to overspend). Then he can purchase without needing a credit card.

 

When he purchases an item from BlackBerry World, he would select PayPal, and it would automatically be charged to the Pay Pal account.  He would not see your credit card information himself.  PayPal sends a notification to whatever email you included for the account. 

Check out www.paypal.com

 

With PayPal, it works on lots of other websites also.

Re: BlackBerry World + Gift Cards

I have paypal. I don't use it very much.  However, I didn't think or realize I could use mine on his BB.  So, thanks!
