[Runescape > PayByCash > MOLPoints] - Why this payment
- PayBySMS is very expensive. ($18.00 / month). At the same time, PayBySMS does not work on prepaid SIM, thus not many youngsters can pay through this method.
- By using MOLPoints method, it saves about $5.00 to $6.00 a month as compared to PayBySMS.
- So far, this is the only "Prepaid Card" method to pay for Runescape membership. Thus, almost everyone, including youngsters can subscribe for Runescape members easily.
- Most youngsters do not have an ATM card. They only have cash (probably using their pocket money). Thus, players who only uses cash can use this payment method to purchase for Runescape membership easily.

Summary: How this payment system works
Many players asked why Runescape is not listed inside MOL games list. This is because, MOLPoints payment method is NOT a direct payment to Runescape. The MOLPoints payment has to go through PayByCash for processing. Once PayByCash receives the payment, PayByCash will process and communicate the payment to Jagex (Runescape) for membership activation.
Basically after all the above explanation, you do not see "Runescape" inside MOL games list. However, you will see "PayByCash" inside MOL games list instead.
Here is the summary of how the payment method works:
- You make your MOLPoints payment to PayByCash
- PayByCash receives the payment from MOLPoints and thus, communicated the payment to Jagex (Runescape)
- Jagex (Runescape) acknowledges it and activate your subscription.
In Summary, this method is an indirect way of paying for Runescape membership.
