Ok, so I believe my mom is still afraid that there may be a monthly fee if I purchase this game.
I have told her twice that there is/and never well be a monthly fee, but I think she still doesnt believe me. So thats why im here to ask, can you get my mom to believe this game doesn't have a monthly fee? Really I want to play this game, it looks amazing! But I cant do that unless my mom gives up just 12 dollars.

Please and thank you!

The fact that you must consent to your mom upsets me. But I love notch so just let her see things into the site.

The game only requires a one-time fee of 13.00~ USD, but if you or your mom feels unsafe using a credit card, may I recommend using an American Express gift card?

There are no plans to introduce a monthly fee. The game is currently in development and is being sold at half price because of this. When it is completed, it will be twice what it is now, but aside from that there is no planned price increase.

In closing, there is no monthly fee, nor weekly fee, nor yearly fee, only a one time payment.

If your mother is worried about recurring charges on her credit card, tell her that if she pays for the game through PayPal there's no chance of being charged more than once.

If she's worried about buying a game that you will then not be able to play because of a monthly fee, all you have to do is show her this page.  That explains that there is a one-time charge for the game, and that's all you pay, ever.

I actually wouldn´t mind if there was a fee, say maybe a yearly fee of 13 Dollars? That way Notch can continue developing the game, when someday everyone already bought it. Or maybe some premium account thingy. But not to confuse your mum, there is no monthly fee.

I dont know if this will help but...

Yea, you only pay for Minecraft once. You are not billed every month, every year, nothing like that. Its a one time purchase, you buy the game, you have the game forever.
Give me an internet if you think I deserve one. =)

Thats where the problem comes in. She thinks the monthly fee is hidden like ringtones.

Buying this ringtone well add 10$ to your monthly pay.

Notch isn't that big of a dick. Hell, I think it's too elaborate for him even if he wanted to. Just show her this thread of us all snickering at her ^_^

Just to throw my opinion in, I have more proof. No monthly fees was probably part of why a bunch of people bought an UNFINISHED game. We get updates for free.

It's safe. Email notch directly if she is THAT paranoid. I bought it with a debit card- no monthly fee as far as I've seen :SSSS:. It's simply only $15 because it's a buggy in development version. He has over 500,000 people who bought the game, and it's purchase through paypal. Paypal= good.
