I decided to make a tutorial on how to buy Silk via Paypal. Yes, it is easy.. but it cant hurt to make it now can it? This was all made by me at 1280x1024 so it may be a bit big for some people.
Unverified Accounts: You CAN buy Silk with unverified accounts, various forum members have done it, so if you cannot buy any silk then the problem lyes elsewhere.
Chargeback: Do not let somebody buy Silk for you unless you are 100% sure you can trust them. I mean personal real life friends only, no online friends. If something happens and that person gets mad at you they can do a chargeback.
Q: What is a chargeback?
A: A chargeback occurs when a buyer asks a credit card company to reverse a transaction that has already cleared. A buyer may file a chargeback with their card issuer based on credit card association regulations and timeframes. Although a chargeback may appear to be similar to a PayPal claim, it is actually a process initiated outside of PayPal, which is granted to a cardholder by their credit card company.
When Joymax recieves a Chargeback they lose their money, so in return they ban your account. So if you let somebody else buy Silk for your account you run the risk of losing your account.
You first need to go to the main site found here: http://www.silkroadonline.net
You will need to login on the top right of the page entering your account name
. Press Log in
to continue. If you do not already have an account then you will need to register one.
If you login was successful then you should have this in the place of the login menu:
Once you are logged in you will have to get to the Silk charge page. You can get there two ways. 1. Click on the large banner in the middle of the screen that says "Premium Item Mall"2. Select the "Item Mall" button from the menu bar and direct the pointer to the Silk Charge option.
Once you are at the Silk Charge screen you have to choose your payment type. Since this is a tutorial on how to use Paypal we will ignore the option for Credit Card and go straight to the Paypal tab. You will have to press the "Charge using Paypal" button to continue.
Once there, you can choose the ammount of Silk that you wish to purchase
. You also have to input your email address
which registers you for information about events and news. Yes, inputing your email is mandatory. You also have to read the User Agreement and tick the button
that says you have read them and agree. To continue with the transaction press the "Make Payment"
button on the bottom of the screen.
*NOTE* You can only buy 10000 Silk per month.
A screen will show up summarizing the transaction, choose "Make Payment"
again to continue.
That will bring you too the Paypal screen where you must login to your Paypal account
. If you do not have an account use the guides provided by Paypal to create one. Press Continue to confirm the transaction via Paypal.
If everything went well then you should get a screen that looks like the following. You can also choose "Silk Charge History"
to see how much, if any, Silk you have bought in the past.
