Delivery and Shipping Policy


Fees, payment, Premium membership and other matters


The In-Game Credit inside AvatarLife Virtual World

This section on the In-Game Credit used inside AvatarLife and outside AvatarLife (in terms of the buying and selling of it on our website) is a very important matter. For our Virtual World, we use an "In-Game Credit" called "AV dollars". We abbreviate "AV dollars" to "AV$" generally. "AV$" is the only acceptable payment method and In-Game Credit inside the AvatarLife Virtual World.

Crucially, all AV dollars are properties of AvatarLife. Generally, we have authorised our AvatarLife members to using AV$ as a payment method inside our Virtual World. If a member is permanently banned from AvatarLife, we reserve the right to confiscate his or her holdings of AV$ immediately. However, any Fiat currencies (we use USD mainly) that this banned ex-member has in his or her account, they will be returned rightfully to him/her.

Please note that very importantly an In-Game Credit, especially for our AV$, is quite different from a Cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and others.

Purchasing and selling of AvatarLife's In-Game Credit AV dollars (AV$)

Our members can use Fiat money such as USD and the member's local currency (subject to availability) to purchase AV$ via PayPal (possibly with other fiat methods in the future) on our website.

Members can also sell their AV$ back to Fiat money (USD) via PayPal. The buying and selling rates of AV$ are different by 6 percent (subject to changes in the future) to reflect on our transaction costs and fees. There is also a fee of 2% of the amount of US dollars needed to make the buying and selling of $AV as well as a fixed charge of 1 US dollar(subject to change) on both the buying and selling of AV$. This 2% fee is used by AvatarLife to pay for a part of the fees charged to us by PayPal.

And we reserve the right to change the buying and selling rates of AV$ after informing our members and this applies to the purchasing and selling fees and the fixed charges too. Our website will very soon have a separate fees document to talk about these fees in greater details and also other fees/charges such as the cost of renting a region.

Know Your customer (KYC) and other crucial requirements

To fulfil our duty for key areas such as combating money laundering, terrorism, fraud, stolen credit cards and illegal access of online accounts with payment companies and other illegal activities, there are several key requirements and restrictions regarding the buying and selling of AV$ such as a KYC process which we also mention in our sections on AV$ dollar and includes the requirement of uploading valid government issued photo ID and possibly also other things such as a selfie) and they will be clearly mentioned on our website and in this Terms of Service document.

Firstly, any members who want to purchase AV$ dollars from us via PayPal and any other methods (such as credit cards which will probably be available soon after we officially open) need to pass our KYC (Know Your Customer) requirements by uploading a valid government issued photo ID. We also may require extra uploads such as the common practice a selfie of holding a piece of paper with that date concerned and the company concerned (AvatarLife) and in handwriting phrases written on this piece of paper.

Very importantly, AV dollars must not be refunded, traded, exchanged, transferred, or sold except within AvatarLife Virtual World and at our Company's discretion. The AvatarLife management may give and take away AV dollars every now and then without warning, and without compensation, for reasonable causes and justifications determined at the management's sole discretion (after investigation or pending investigation) such as Money Laundering, terrorism fraud and bad/illegal accounting practices.

"Refund and Cancellation Policy of AvatarLife" PLEASE READ OUR SEPARATE DOCUMENT OF "REFUND AND CANCELLATION"Very important note on Skill Gaming related to AvatarLife

Firstly, we must repeat this warning from the earlier section "Age and Eligibility". Secondly, as we have also mentioned earlier, you must have satisfied the legal age requirement for skill gaming in your country of residence. Thirdly, your country of residence must legally allow online skill gaming. Fourthly, when you buy or sell AV$ with PayPal, you must be the rightful owner of this PayPal account and all its linked payment methods such as credit cards.

If and only if you satisfy all these 4 requirements and also completing the KYC process, then you can buy AV$ from us in order to play the out games inside the AvatarLife Virtual World. Please note that following very important statement:Skill Gaming is only available inside AvatarLife the Virtual World. And very importantly only AV$ is used for this skill gaming. No real (Fiat) money is used for skill gaming.

The relationship between Skill Gaming and AvatarLife

As we mentioned earlier. We are primarily a Virtual World where our members can become business owners and creative designers. They can also socialise, meet new friends, enjoy our Virtual World Scenery and Virtual World Activities. Very importantly, AvatarLife the Virtual World does have a considerable but not overwhelming amount of skill gaming as we discussed in some length in the earlier section of this Terms of Service document. We do not consider AvatarLife as an Internet Casino or Virtual Casino. Our games are for casual to moderate skill gaming only. A moderately to reasonably big amount of AV$ can be won (and lost). We have these games to cater for a segment of the general Virtual World users who like to have some fun and to potentially win some AV$ in a Virtual World environment.

Responsible Skill Gaming

AvatarLife as a company very strongly advise our members to enjoy their skill gaming responsibly. We urge our AvatarLife members that they should be very responsible with their skill gaming inside our Virtual World but also skill gaming in general . If there are any signs that your skill gaming is out of control or/and your skill gaming is causing you considerable problems then you should very urgently seek professional help regarding any possible skill gaming problems or addictions that you may have.

Very Important Requirement for Skill Gaming regions operators

We have one very important rule for AvatarLife Skill Gaming operators: The operator must maintain a minimum balance to pay out at least his/her highest payout game machine rezzed on the land. If this rule is not followed, then the machine will be returned to the skill gaming operator's inventory with a formal warning. For example if there is a game machine with a maximum of 1 million AV$ payout which can be multiplied by as much as 5 times in bonus rounds during the game, then the operator must maintain a minimum balance of 5 million AV$ at all times. A second violation of this rule will lead to the suspension of the operator's account at AvatarLife.


Security, Data Protection and Privacy are all taken very seriously by the management of AvatarLife. We use industry standard software and techniques and procedures to look after your security, data protection and Privacy. But data breaches and hackings are common occurrences even with the best and biggest companies. Therefore we cannot and do not guarantee that unauthorized access to your account (through no fault of your own) and data breaches will never happen.

Regular updates and changes of this Terms of Service document

As we continue to develop our Virtual world, we probably have the need to update this Terms of Service document regularly especially in the very early days after our full opening on 23 June 2019. We will inform you with enough time when there is a change in our Terms of Service and ask you most importantly to read it and accept the new Terms of Service if you find it agreeable.

Waiver and Severability of Terms

There may be times / situations and cases where AvatarLife the company failing or simply not actioning to exercise or enforce any right or provision mentioned in this Terms of Service document, When these situations occur, it does not constitute a waiver of such right or provision by AvatarLife. Even if a legal court finds one of point/requirement in our Terms of Service to be invalid, all the remaining points within our Terms of Service are still valid.

Statute of Limitations

You have 12 months to make any claim or complaint against AvatarLife for the issues mentioned in this Term of Service document.

The decision of AvatarLife management is final for all AvatarLife mattersWhere there is a dispute or decision concerning AvatarLife the Virtual World, our website and all our other properties and rights; our decision is final. But as mentioned earlier, we will be fair and transparent in our decision making.Contacting us

Refund and Cancellation (Policy)

Introduction to the Chargeback Problem most businesses face

It is normally agreed that Chargeback on debit/credit cards and other payment methods such as PayPal is a rightful protection for buyers when the seller is at fault. However, the misuse of Chargeback, especially fraudulent misuse, is an extremely important issue for sellers. And with the rapid growth of the digital economy and online fraud, chargeback for digital items is most important to digital items sellers such as AvatarLife where we sell our In-Game Credits of AV dollars and other Virtual items like Virtual clothing and Virtual Land. Crucially, before reading the following sections please make sure that you have read and understood our very important sections earlier in this document regarding AV dollars.

Our Policy on Chargeback and Fraudulent Chargeback

We at AvatarLife must do what we can to protect ourselves fully from the fraudulent and general misuse of chargeback in order to protect the financial well-being of our company. Please read the following section very carefully. When you purchase any AV dollars from us, you understand and agree to our following conditions: Our AV dollars is an In-Game Credit for use inside our Virtual World. And any fraudulent chargebacks will be taken most seriously by us. After a fair investigation if we decide that you have deliberately made fraudulent chargebacks with your Debit/Credit card company or PayPal , or other payment methods that we may have in the future, your AvatarLife membership will be revoked immediately. And you will be permanently banned from AvatarLife. We will pursue the matter legally with your debit/credit card provider and PayPal and any other payment service providers.

Returns and Refund Policy of Av dollars

If you have bought some AV dollars by genuine mistake or the amount bought is a genuine mistake, you alone are responsible for this mistake. For example, if you intended to buy 5000 AV dollars (21.40 USD). If you press the keyboard key "0" (zero) once too many. and so at the first stage of ordering it shows you want to buy 50000 AV$ for 205 USD. As you proceed to make the purchase on our website and later on when you are redirected to PayPal or any future payment processing agents third party websites, there are at least two more occasions where the figure of 50000 AV dollars and a Fiat charge of 200 USD are mentioned. And you can quite easily cancel this purchase. So ordering AV$ on our website Is definitely not a "one mouse click" process where mistakes do and can happen easily. So there normally should not be any justification for a refund of AV$ under and our refund policy is exactly this. We will only issue refunds in the following two situations:

AvatarLife the company's fault. For example, if the AvatarLife website has a technical issue and it has taken us a long time like more than 10 hours to deliver the AV$ rather than the normal timeframe of several seconds (Please note that this example does not include the delay caused by the KYC process for first purchase). After a very long wait, before the customer receives his/her AV$, the customer can contact us and ask for a refund due to his/her cancellation of the AV$ before it is delivered. In the case of the customer receiving the AV$ after a very long wait but decided that this long wait has been disappointing. We will accept a return of the AV$ and issue a refund that way. But the customer must inform us immediately during/after the long wait before he/she spends this newly purchased AV$.

A case where the management of AvatarLife are not obliged to issue a refund/accept a return as these situations are not covered by this Policy Document. But the management has decided to give a refund/accept a return at its discretion. The management may use this very rare discretion for truly exceptional circumstances in order to give a helping hand to someone who has made a genuine error and need genuine help by means of a refund.

Apart from the above two situations. No refunds or returns will be given. AV$ is In-Game Credit. Our rational is as follows: Buyers know exactly what they are buying an In-Game Credit. It is not like many purchases like clothing or electrical/technological items where the actual item may be substantially different from/inferior to what people have led to believe. Also AV$ is an In-Game Credit so it cannot be "faulty" and needs returning to get a refund

As we have clearly laid out our very strong arguments against a general and common refund by AvatarLife, therefore there are also very few situations where a chargeback is necessary or needed or justified for AV dollars. And most chargeback attempts on AV$ will statistically be very likely to be fraudulent or misuse. If we cannot help you with a full refund, there is always the option to sell your AV dollars back and overall you would most unlikely to lose more than 20 percent of the original amount as fees to us and our payment services provider such as credit card and PayPal and allowing for foreign currency conversion.

If your computer/device to log in AvatarLife normally has malware or has been hacked and your security has been compromised, we sympathise but it is not our responsibility that your computer/device has been hacked and controlled through malware or phishing or other means. If the hacker knows your AvatarLife password or can reset It for himself /herself because he/she has access to your email account too. Although we sympathise with you, it is not the fault of AvatarLife the company at all that you have lost your credit card details and other payment and personal details due to a security breach. And we fully reject all chargeback attempts due to your computer/device being compromised and used by hackers both in-world and outside of Virtual World and website.

Any losses that occurred after you have notified your credit card issuer are covered by your credit card company (and the card should have been disabled anyway). Our understanding is that any losses that occurred before you notify your card issuer are also covered by your credit card issuer for most credit card issuers. You may be liable for the first one hundred USD (approximately) or whatever the amount is in your situation.

Returns and Refund Policy of Virtual items inside the AvatarLife Virtual World

If you buy some Virtual Items (such as the clothing and skins for Avatars or furniture for your home) from one of our shops inside our Virtual World, any returns and refunds are purely a matter between the shop owner and yourself. We are not responsible for the actions of the shop owners. Of course we would want both the customer and shop owner to be satisfied if possible if there is a dispute. We do not get involved in individual cases generally, we only do so as an arbiter or a "peacemaker" in the more serious and special situations. However, we will lay down the necessary rules for our Virtual World to ensure that both consumers and businesses can enjoy fair and reasonable treatments when they are buying or selling items and services for the sake of the in-world Economy and Society.

Cancellation and Returns Policy of Land Rental and Premium Membership.

These two items are ongoing subscriptions with a monthly renewal fee. They need to be paid in advance.

Our regions are generally offered for free with a 10% cash out fee as a maintenance charge for them. But residents can opt out of that and go for a flat 99$ a month fee. As long as the member writes to us before the next payment date (with 3 working days to spare for processing) then all will be fine regarding cancellation.

On refund, similar to the situation of AV$, if it is entirely the fault of AvatarLife the company, then we will issue a refund for the full month or proportionally. For example, we aim to give the customer the land rental within 3 days of ordering, if we cannot deliver the product within this timeframe and the customer wants a refund (rather than the delayed delivery of the land/region) then we will issue a refund.

Discretionary refund may be given for very exceptional situation by the management similar to that for AV$.

Our Policy with Credit card theft, PayPal theft and also their chargebacks regarding Land Rental and Premium membership is the same as that for AV$ that we discussed earlier.
