[GAME] Different payment options

Recommended Posts

BABY STRETCH

This is a simple suggestion. When you go into a store, you should be able to pay through your wallet, or your card aka your bank account.

This would be a nice idea. Would be great if debit cards themselves became part of the script.

yeah but it saves the hassle for having to drive to a bank or go to the nearest ATM, ((which is possibly far depending where you at)). it's also realistic lmao

Yes, there should be bank checks and credit cards for sure. In the Scamming and robbing regulations? thread I offered those two as solutions for people getting robbed their cash. If they could pay with their credit card they wouldn't have millions on them. You could go to a store and buy with your credit card. You could purchase a house or a vehicle from another player and simply hand them a bank check. You could go to a bank in Bay Area, request a bank check and fill it with your name, the amount, and the recipient, then once signed you would offer them the check and they could go redeem it in a bank or ATM onto their own bank account once they inserted their credit card. Additionally they could just go to the bank and retrieve the cash without having a bank account, because the name of the recipient is on the card. In the case of a stolen or lost bank check, the thief couldn't do much unless they stole your ID and in that case you could contact the bank to cancel the check and law enforcement of stolen ID.

 

As for credit cards, tw1ster already explained how it could work and I 100% agree.

The main selling point behind the debit card suggested is the realization that we aren't going to be able to carbon-copy the real life system, but we can SA:MPify it. It's a relatively simple suggestion though I don't know how it can be too complicated.

  • All players are assigned an account specific debit card to which they can access all their funds regularly. You can see a player's full name and banking account number on their card.
  • Give players the ability to transfer their card to other players (for robbing scenarios ... potential pick pocket RP ... and form of identification ... etc)
  • We impose a withdraw limit from the ATM, which is conveniently our robbing maximum.
  • A victim of robbing could report the robbery to the police as any robbery reporting would go.
  • The criminal has the ability to withdraw the money from an ATM in an (X) hour period (before it is ICly deactivated)
  • Player recieves an automated text (X) hours later, saying their debit card has been seized and a new card has been issued to them.
  • Player drives to pre-determined location/building where they can either type a /debitcard command or go through another process to retrieve it from that place.

Essentially this removes unrealistic cash-on-hand portion of "if the money's on you, you're carrying it." debate because the money is now considered to be in plastic, rather than paper. Which really makes sense considering the time we live in. It's just a suggestion though, probably more of a pipe dream than anything. I just haven't seen a system that I feel properly handles the money on a player.

 

Thieves or even yourself wouldn't be able to withdraw more than $500 from your bank account meaning there'd really not be much of a reason why you'd have that much in cash. If most services allowed credit cards and checks, cash would hardly be used so people wouldn't have millions on them. Cash would be preferred as they would be untraceable transactions from banks, making it more ideal for criminals, but with the risk that they may have their cash stolen from other criminals. It would open the door for all sorts of roleplay, including money laundering, as it would become a necessity so you don't deposit illegally earned money on your personal account.

Is the statement you quoted of Twister going to actually be implemented then? That would be great if it is.

Good idea. I don't see going around with hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash to buy a house or an exotic vehicle as being very realistic. Being able to use a credit card or a cheque makes more sense.

It  will be better to add ATMS in the town in the safezones etc , using your card to only take out money .

Yes please, then people could actually roleplay what's on hand as being on them, rather than walking around with 10k+ in their pocket.
