tl;dr We are now offering the ability to purchase Premium Avatars & Badges for a limited time. Your purchases will allow us to continue to improve the plug.dj you love, while keeping our core service free to use, plus you can get some exclusive avatars with sidekicks and really cool special effects!
Ever since the early days of plug.dj, many of you have been asking how you can donate money to plug.dj to show your support. We are still astounded by and thankful for your generous offers to contribute to the future of plug.dj. However, we did not want to accept money from you, our awesome community members, until we could offer you something in return.
And now that time has arrived with the introduction of the plug.dj store where you can choose to buy Premium Avatars & Chat Badges. Here is a quick look at how some of them look:
Our first set of premium avatars are winter-themed. Tell us what other themes you would like to see in the comments below.
Show off your flare with the new chat badges and stand out from the crowd!
And like the very popular Halloween avatars, these will be available for a limited time only so get ‘em before they disappear!
Please note we will continue to provide some Avatars that you can earn with PP, however this set will only be available to unlock with PN!
How much longer will these avatars be available?
These Winter Avatars will only be available through March 19, 2015.
How can I buy premium avatars/badges to show off my support?
Thanks for asking! All premium items can be purchased in the store with our new virtual currency which we are calling Plug Notes . Plug Notes can be purchased using a PayPal or Credit/Debit card and you can redeem your Notes for avatars, badges and soon community backgrounds/skins.
What are Plug Notes?
Notes offers a way to show your support for plug.dj to help keep us running, improving, and adding your highly requested features, like the search playlist feature and mobile app, so plug.dj can continue to be a place for you to share and discover your new favorite songs to others from around the world!
What if I still just want to donate to plug.dj?
You warm our hearts! You can just purchase some Plug Notes but not redeem them. But even if you decide to redeem them on something from the store later, that’s cool too!
Alternatively, you can send a donation through our YouTube Channel by clicking the Support button in the right-side of the screen.
When I buy a premium avatar/badge, do I get to keep it forever?
Of course! Once you buy it, it is yours to keep & use, forever! They will only be available for purchase through March 19, 2015, and after that, no one else can purchase them.
I can’t decide on which avatar to buy! I NEED them all!!
We know decisions are hard. So we have made it easier with a premium bundle that includes ALL 10 Winter-themed Premium Avatars, plus the exclusive Winter Bundle Badge. This badge is exclusive and ONLY available if you buy the bundle and is the best way to show off your support. As an extra thanks, you will save 27% by buying the bundle. It’s like getting 3 avatars free!
We really hope you enjoy these new features. We spent a lot of time talking to members of many communities, taking surveys, and listening to what you had to say. We understand that you want plug.dj to be around for a very long time (so do we!) and we hope you find enough value in the service to offer your support so that we can continue to provide you with a friendly way to discover great music and hang out with some really cool people!
