Registration for console consoles is a tough sell, even for people who own them.
“I think there are some consoles that people just don’t have access to,” says Nick Waggoner, a senior partner at New York’s PaymentTech firm.
“Some consoles have more of a hardware barrier to entry than others, and they can be hard to get on.”
Payworld agents are the people who do this for consoles.
You can register your console and get paid for it, Waggerson says, and then they’ll put the game in your account, either on the main game console or the add-on console, or both.
“We don’t charge for it,” Waggener says.
“That’s a free service.”
The idea of paying for your console has become the norm in the gaming world.
It was the main reason why Valve acquired Steam, the online multiplayer game-sharing service, in 2013.
Payworld agent is the first of many ways people have to get paid to play games on consoles.
But it can be tricky.
If you’re not familiar with how to register a console, you can ask a question on the official Steam forums, but that’s a bit like going to a friend’s house and asking for permission to have a movie play.
“If you have a question, don’t say it’s ‘You must have an account to use this,'” Waggner says.
“[Payworld agent] asks you, ‘How do I register?’
If it says ‘Register now,’ and you said ‘Register,’ it’s not really clear what you’re supposed to do.”
Wagginner says the easiest way to register your game is to download it and install it from Steam.
He suggests you use the Steam client’s “add-on services” option to play on both add-ons.
If it’s a PC game, it’ll ask you to use the “Steam add-Ons” feature.
If that doesn’t work, Wagner suggests you register on Xbox Live.
But if you don’t use Steam or the Xbox add-ins, you’ll need to go to a Payworld store and pay for the game.
If the game’s not free, Wargner says, you might have to pay a $9.99 annual fee.
That’s a big chunk of change, especially if you only own a couple consoles.
Wagginger recommends making a new payment method each time you want to register an add-in, which is typically about $20 to $25.
“It’s kind of a long process,” Wagerson says.
You should make sure you have enough money in your bank account to cover it, too.
If, at any point, you have trouble making a payment, you may need to call the Payworld office.
