My Credits Balance
What is it?
VideoGateway.TV is introducing a new way to pay for on-demand content. You can buy credits and have them stored on your virtual account. No need to register for membership!
Every time you want to pay for the chosen content, you simply enter your email address and password on the payment page instead of entering your sensitive credit card information every time.
- You buy credits securely using your home PC. You can use them everywhere you want: on your HTPC in the living room (Home Theater PC), at your friends' computer, public library, school or from your internet-enabled mobile device without letting others see your credit card details!
- You can buy credits for someone else! Simply enter their e-mail address and a password when you buy credits. An e-mail will be sent to the provided address with the details and usage instructions. A great digital gift certificate!
- Invite others to watch content using your credits without having to disclose your credit card details!
- We continually improve and simplify the way you refill and spend your credit balance on media and services.
How much does it cost?
The price of any media on our portal is set by the owner of that media. Either video or audio, the price in credits is equal to the price you would pay when using a credit card for a pay-per-view transaction. There is no difference in the way the system handles prices. Imagine credits as a comfortable pre-paid method to enjoy digital content.
How it works
Buying credits is easy. Enter your credit card information on our safe Buy Credits page, select an amount of credits to buy.
Enter a valid email address, either your own or the address of the person you are buying for.
Choose an easy to remember password which is hard to guess. After a successful payment, a confirmation e-mail will be sent with all the information required to use your credits.
On the detail page of the media files, you will see a box that shows the Pay with Credits form with an e-mail and password fields.
When you want to use your credits to pay for the content, enter your email and password pair into the fields. Your account will be charged with the proper amount of credits and playback will start immediately.
Make sure you use the same e-mail address and password every time you buy credits to refill your account! Credits you buy with every consecutive transaction will be automatically added to your existing virtual account. You can check the balance of your virtual account on our My Credits Balance page.
One click access to on-demand media
When you enter your email address and password on the media detail page, you have the option to save a cookie on your computer, which identifies the computer and your credit account in our system. Enable the checkbox that reads "Remember me on this computer" to use the feature. Next time you want to pay with credits you will only have to confirm the amount with a single click. Use this feature with caution, do not enable it on public computers such as internet cafes or libraries, only on the desktop PC at home, your Pocket PC or personal laptop.
