''Any amount of gold''

 

''Any amount''

 

''Any''

 

...But only if you purchase at least 500. Must be Russian advertising.

I was trying to purchase 100 because that is all I want, but I can't.

There is a minimum gold amout, because WG doesnt want to lose money. Anything lower then 500 gold would be a deficit because of Tax and transaction fee.

Because at 500 WG makes something. With 100, some banks want more to transfer it then the cost of the gold. So it's not worth it for WG, or even for you. 

 

If you "only" want 100 and you are still cheap. Install WOWP and get more then that with little effort.

The lowest amount seem to be 265 Gold via Mobile payment. Each gold unit is then 30% more expensive than the 500 Gold deal, at least in my currency.

They can't even make a coherent news section on the website. Did you really expect them to be competent in this department too? Their web designers are so insanely incompetent that I am surprised the web doesn't look like it was drawn in "Paint".

It should actually then say Any* (*required minimum is 500 gold) or words to that effect.

Fun tip: you can buy lower amounts of gold with your phone, either via call or SMS. :great:

They should say, but the default value is already set at 500.

But then OP would want to buy 525.65 gold.

You can't buy 501 either. Are you going to complain about that too?

 

It's basic economics. 500 gold is the minimum transaction that Wargaming can make a profit on, when the cost of bank transaction/credit card fees are applied.

 

It's the same reason most small corner stores wont allow card purchases below £5.

 

Have to say, thought this might be the thread about being one shotted in heavies by arty that you promised, feel a little disappointed.

Apologies to OP in comparing his country to Zimbabwe.

I hear Seth Efrica can be a rough place.  I'd stay inside and play tanks too if I lived there.  

 

Oh, and my guess is that it doesn't say ENIGE BEDRAG VAN GOUD.
