MMOBUX assesses three WoW Gold sites for prices and overall shopping experience
“On Saturday August 18,2012 MMOBUX.com, the principal virtual currency price comparison service for world of Warcraft gold, successfully published short reviews of 3 gold sellers by comparing their prices to the industry average as determined by the proprietary MMOBUX WOW gold price tracker. From the published reviews, MMOBUX conveys up-to-date in-game currency prices of WoW gold in order for site visitors to make a better informed purchasing decision.”
wow-goldstore sells 20,000 Gold for $19.69. wow-goldstore gives bigger discounts the more you purchase. Bumping up an order to 200,000 Gold, for example, will net you roughly $6 in discounts.
Verdict: wow-goldstore’s price is 28% lower than the industry average, the cheapest among the three sellers we reviewed in this batch. The percentage increase even more when you purchase increasingly in bulk.
Pros: wow-goldstore offers some of the largest volumes we’ve seen of up to 400,000 Gold for a single order. They also have a customized quotation calculator which easily lets you know how much it will cost to order a specific number of Gold not on the pre-set list. We typed in 23,520 Gold and instantly received a quoted price of $24.59 without having to whip out our calculator – a definitely useful feature for shoppers.
Cons: Not friendly to small-time buyers. Smallest bundle available is for 10,000 Gold.
dxug sells 20,000 Gold for $23.89, with possibility for lower prices when using discount coupons.
Verdict: dxug’s price is 13% lower than the industry average, making it the most expensive out of the three gold sellers reviewed in this batch. Customers will shell out $1-$2 more per 10,000 Gold when choosing dxug over the wow-goldstore or mmolive.
Pros: Gives out bonus coupons to drive down the prices. During our review, dxug was offering a 5% discount to anyone who Likes the gold seller on Facebook. When applied to their price, it drops to a rate of 20,000 Gold for $22.70 – still higher than wow-goldstore or mmolive, but no longer by a big margin.
Cons: Quite a long processing time for orders. In a note on their checkout page, dxug said that “we will begin the work after receiving your orders within 30 minutes.” In comparison, some gold sellers have almost instantaneous order processing and confirmation.
mmolive sells 20,000 Gold for $21.76.
Verdict: mmolive’s price is 21% lower than the industry average. Discount coupons available, but buyers who want the cheapest base price will still pick wow-goldstore over this shop.
Cons: Lots of clicking to complete the order. We had to through four screens to finish the transaction when other websites make it faster by letting you complete information and details in one complete page. Sure, there is a quick order option – but it is not given enough prominence and we spotted it only after going through the long-winded normal shopping process.
