Queosia launches affiliate program

We realize that many of our players cannot become VIP members because they have no credit card, and their parents will not let them use their cards. To overcome this problem, last week we introduced e-gold as an alternate payment method for VIP membership. We already have a weekly draw where you can win a month's worth of VIP membership. This week, we introduce yet another way you can earn your country VIP status:

We are launching our affiliate program!

Okay, what does this mean for you? It means that with a little work from your part, you can earn yourself VIP membership, or even earn actual money. (Read about this later on.)

Interested? Okay, here's what you need to do. Whenever you refer your friends, family, co-workers etc to Queosia, you are marked as the referrer. When these people become VIP members, you get VIP membership, too!

You get 10% of their VIP membership. Of course, this is OVER what they get, you are not taking away any VIP rounds from them. In short: if you refer 10 people to Queosia, who become and stay VIP members, you got yourself a lifetime free VIP membership!

We also mentioned you can earn money. Whenever someone extends their VIP membership using e-gold, we send you 10% of the VIP fee to your e-gold account! You can spend this on whatever you want: extend your VIP membership in Queosia, or use it for anything else.

Referrals do not expire. If someone you referred plays 5 years from now, you still get your free VIP rounds, or money to your e-gold account!

How do we know you referred someone? You need to use your unique HTML code to get people to sign up. You can find this in the "Community" menu, just click on "How to place our banner on your website. If you do not have a website, don't worry, you can still refer people. To find out how, please read the VIP help within the game.

More information about e-gold, and e-gold payments can be found in our previous blog entry.

We believe that the launch of this affiliate program will give everyone the chance to become VIP members.

Good luck everyone!

Oh, before I forget: we will have some Christmas surprises, too. :)

VIP membership: credit card and e-gold payments

Today we have added a new way of VIP membership payment: e-gold.

E-gold is an Internet payment system, backed by real gold, and other metal. To find out more about e-gold, visit their homepage: http://www.e-gold.com If you do not already have an e-gold account, you can open one for free at https://www.e-gold.com/newacct/newaccount.asp

Now why would anyone want to use a payment method other than credit cards? That's a good question, and it is not easy to answer. Credit card payments are secure. They also provide more control over all transactions. E-gold payments on the other hand, provide more anonymity. While it might be difficult to get initial funds onto your e-gold account, once you have some money on it, payments made with e-gold do not show up on your credit card statement, or any other sensitive place.

While Queosia still prefers credit card payments, e-gold payments are a first step towards creating....... something new, and that's not for today's blog. :) You can read about this in a few days. :)

Introductory promotion ended, new promotion in place

Our once-extended introductory promotion of giving everyone 4 weeks of trial VIP membership has come to an end today. From now on, we are giving everyone only 1 week of trial VIP membership, and this will remain to be the normal time.

A new promotion is already here though! This promotion gives everyone a chance to win a month's worth of VIP membership, each week. All you need to do to take part in the weekly draw, is to play Queosia with a browser that has the Alexa Toolbar installed. For details, see the VIP help.

More good news coming soon. :)
