We are happy to announce a new and convenient way to pay for your RuneScape membership in the UK – a recurring SMS subscription using your mobile phone!
Jagex has offered one-off payments by SMS (text message) for many years. With our new Recurring SMS subscriptions it’s even easier: You make the first payment on our website, and then Jagex will automatically take a payment every month so you don’t need to remember to pay.
You can cancel at any time and, to keep you in control of your subscription, you will receive a text message a few days before each renewal to remind you of the subscription and ensure that you have enough credit on your phone.
Q: How do I start a recurring SMS subscription?
A: Starting a recurring SMS subscription is easy: 1) click ‘Account > Upgrade your account’ on the RuneScape home page and log-in 2) Choose the ‘SMS’ payment option from Paymo, and then the recurring option. 3) Enter your mobile number to receive a text message. 4) Follow the on-screen instructions to agree to the charge. 5) You’re done!
Q: Where are recurring SMS subscriptions available?
A: Recurring SMS subscriptions are currently only available for RuneScape in the UK. We are looking at making this service available in other territories in the future, so keep an eye on the news.
Q: Can I have a recurring SMS subscription for other Jagex games?
A: Recurring SMS subscriptions are currently only available for RuneScape. You can still make one-off payments using SMS for other Jagex games where supported.
Q: I don’t want a recurring subscription, I only want to pay once.
A: Recurring SMS subscriptions are a convenient way to continue your membership, however if you want just one month you can instead choose the ‘1 month’ payment option under SMS.
Q: How do I cancel a recurring SMS subscription?
A: You can cancel via the Account Management section of the RuneScape website or by replying ‘STOP’ to the SMS messages you receive from Paymo.
Q: How much does a recurring SMS subscription cost?
A: Currently only available in the UK, a recurring SMS subscription to RuneScape costs £6 per month. This is the same cost per month as one-off payments.
Q: Why does membership paid by SMS cost more than by credit/debit card?A: Our players are free to choose whichever payment option represents the best value and convenience for them. While credit/debit card is our recommended, best-value option – some prefer the convenience of paying by mobile phone. As the mobile operators charge a high fee for paying in this way, we pass this ‘convenience cost’ on.
