How to buy Minecraft

This might a trivial question, but apparently some of you have problems buying Minecraft through Paypal. Here are some tips how to buy Minecraft (without Paypal or as a gift).

Where and how to buy minecraft

One of the many advantages of buying Minecraft now is that you will not have to pay again (all future updates for free!) and the price for Minecraft will soon go up when it’s in beta and again when the final game will be released. It’s also a great way to show your support.

Head over to and register for an account, you can then buy Minecraft via Paypal. Don’t have Paypal? Proceed below.

Here’s what you get:
You never have to pay again!
You get all future versions of the game, including all expansions and addons.
You help fund the development of Minecraft
Custom skins in multiplayer
Once you’ve bought the game, it’s yours. No DRM.
Survival mode!
