It worked flawless and had no problems with anything. If you people are going to go insane over 2.50 that goes towards your next month anyways, i don't really have words for how cheap you are. This is no scam or anything like that, people are just trying to get people worried on the forums for no reason. I got my CE, set up payment, took me maybe 2 minutes. I hope everyone else has an easy time like I did and don't worry about all these forum posts!

I think what's got people worried about CnB is not the ease of the process or how quick it can be, it's more tied to their track record as far as reliability and Credit Card issues goes. As many others have pointed out already, this is a fairly unheard-of third party company here, assuming charge of what may possibly be a pretty huge billing management hoopla. I just hope they prove up to the task.

If not there's always the Crysta route. So what if you're always overpaying for the sub, the points will go towards next month.

I registered on CaB last night, and got an email early today saying my account was activated. The game should be waiting when I get home from work, so we'll see how it goes.

Given how many places I give my CC and Debit card to and the fact that even big corporations aren't immune to fraud or identity leaks, I'm not worried in the slightest.

I do understand some worry, as it was posted in another thread, because it seems this sort of third party credit transaction used to be behind the scenes but its now overt.

But I'm sure there are reasons. Might be fraud prevention, a more direct transaction resulting in a more streamlined process, maybe SE doesn't want the headaches? I don't know.

All I know is that the account set-up was pretty easy so far. The hardest part was coming up with a secure password.

Possible side effect: Chase fraud prevention is all on high alert now, although they did the same thing last month when I reactivated my ffxi account. :P

I guess switching from grocery getting, bill paying mode to "Actually have some fun for once" mode sends an extra cat through the matrix.

As said in the OTHER CaB thread... ANY company is going to have negative feedback.

If you think Paypal (I use it and never had a problem yet) is the best around... just look at their own forums and how their own members are basically saying that PayPal takes money from your account without your knowledge.

Also... look at ANY company, retailer, online store.... there will never be a place that has 100% positive feedback 100% of the time.

People just like to complain about the stupidest stuff they can complain about, and they always demand satisfaction.

You can't make everyone happy all the time, but making half of the people happy over half the time is better than not making any happy.

Yep, I would be willing to bet that I will forget my password within 2 months.... or less.

Chase didn't like it, so I am kind of unsure if it will work. Chase contacted me and I confirmed that it is legit. Guess I'll wait and see. The second payment went through, but not the first. I am just preparing for next weeks regular release. If this doesn't go through within their 3 day timeframe and it irritates me enough to cancel my preorder over another billing system that sucks, I guess it is my loss or theirs. I buy things online all the time. There are only TWO services that have ever triggered an alarm and the payment was stopped.

When I returned to FFXI.
When I went to clickandbuy to setup my account yesterday morning.
