Hi there,

I found a video on YouTube about Minecraft and I was recently overhelmed! The simple way to play is fantastic!
So, I looked for buying it, but I think you need a PayPal-Account for buying Minecraft!

I've already read about a topic like this and it says there's no possiblity to buy Minecraft through Amazon, but it wasn't updated.

So, now I ask again: Is there any possiblity to buy Minecraft through Amazon.

I ask for this, because I haven't got a PayPal-Account and I am not going to buy with my creditcard.

If anybody has a gift code, which he doesn't use, he can PW me please!

Thank you!

PS: Where can I get free Minecraft gift codes seriously?

Sadly you can only purchase Minecraft via a Credit Card or PayPal, or you can have someone else give you a gift code (best bet would be a friend who wouldn't mind to use their card). The only times I give out gift codes is if I actually want to GIVE someone the game.

... Don't look at me like that! Don't expect a free gift code from me!

You'll either have to make a PayPal account and use that, use a credit/debit card, or look for a friend that has either of the options handy (that you've known for more than a forum post). Godspeed!

P.S. Some stores can provide you with a Credit Card-like plastic that you pump your cash in. It is like a debit card using your checking account, but instead you just go to a store and put cash in it. This is so you never go "Over the Limit" and you can make purchases online with ease. Very handy for people who don't like to use actual credit cards.

Paypal account is not needed to buy Minecraft. Paypal is only the "bank" handling the money. All you need is a credit card.

You do need to get a Paypal account if you want to pay with your bank account and not your credit card.

I know. But the hassle-free version IMO is the credit card :iapprove:

Thanks for your answers!

I can see, there isn't any way to buy Minecraft throught Amazon. That's sad :).

Does Notch plan to sell Minecraft via Amazon?

Seeing how right now it is really just a "permission" thing I don't see how it would be possible via Amazon. Everything is digital. Heck, you can even download Minecraft right now (just can't log in without the purchase). Unless it is distributed by other means or supported by different third-party companies I wouldn't think so.

Shorter Version: Not right now, and nothing in the near future.

They are sold in gas stations and everywhere inbetween  over here in the States.

Are you guys able to purchase Visa/Discover/Mastercard gift cards over there?

What relevence does this have with the issue at hand? Besides, money isn't trash in the USA, but the Dollar is becoming that way.
