Sunnyvale, California – May 9, 2008 – Gala-Net has partnered up exclusively with Target to offer Gala-Net’s prepaid cards at U.S. Target store locations. Gala-Net, one of the leading online free-to-play companies (www.gpotato.com), is proud to offer an alternative method of payment for its users. Gpotato Game Cards will be available at Target starting May 13th.
Gamers can now use the prepaid cards to redeem virtual in-game items and accessories within Flyff, Rappelz, Corum Online, Shot Online, and Upshift StrikeRacer. The gPotato Game Cards available at Target are in denominations of $15 and $30 and can be found at the Entertainment section of Target locations.
“Offering these Game Cards at Target is very important for an MMO publisher because we want to be able to reach a broader market,” says Jikhan Jung, CEO of Gala-Net. “Teens are the biggest fans of our online games, but since they are too young to have a credit card to purchase gPotatoes, these prepaid cards will be the most convenient option to purchase our premium items. Our denominations are ideal! They are perfect for our gamers who are on a budget.”
