Thanks for the replies so far. I was wondering who to contact regarding this. I guess I'll wait one more day to see if there are any more thoughts.

You can always PM a moderator with your question.

This is the list of mods: WebkinzInsider.Com Webkinz Forum - Show Groups

Look for one that is online (the icon beside their name will show up as green).


Justin would be the person with the best info as he set the system up. Though you will have to post on his profile as he does not take PMs and he's very busy so he may not have a chance to answer.

I understand that there is a 5% fee when you give WI Bucks. Over the holiday, I was giving and receiving Wi Bucks like crazy. It was a lot of fun to be able to give a gift like that. But I also noticed that I was receiving odd amounts. It took me awhile to realize that the 5% fee was being taken from the receiver rather than the giver. I would have preferred to pay that 5% fee myself. I now realize that I could have added 5% on to the total given and that would have taken care of it. But my actual question is this - What is the rationale of why the fee is taken from the receiver, rather than the giver? In other words, WHY don't they charge me an additional 5% for sending someone 150 wibucks, for example, instead of just plopping 143 into someone elses account? As the giver, I think I should be the one charged the fee, not the receiver. Just not understanding why the receiver of a gift is getting 'penalized'. I'm just feeling badly now that I shorted people because I didn't realize this until it was way too late. Thanks for anyone who can explain why it's set up like that. And I'm not criticizing, I just don't understand.
Dude, Totalaly right! why should me person i'm givin' to not get thier full amount? dude, right on

Thanks. I didn't know Justin won't take PM's. I'll just close this and try the more direct approach.

Default Re: What are WI Bucks for?

And just as a summary:
You get WI bucks for participating in the WI forum (making posts, leaving reputation, etc.). Someone also might donate WI bucks to you.

If you click on the WI bucks link by your profile picture (next to your post), you will see some options and information.

You can save and earn interest on your WI bucks as a learning tool.
You can spend your WI bucks to buy in Insider Subscription that will allow you to turn off the ads and popups (and maybe make your computer run WI a little faster).
You can give you WI bucks to friends or nice people just as a way to say "thanks".

I am no expert, and what I have written may not be completely perfectly right, but I hope this helps!

Welcome to WI!

You can buy items with them. So far you can only get a WI2 subscription. If you want to visit the store, click the link in my signature. You get a certain amount of WI bucks every time you make a post.
