Monetizing with Gloebits

We want you to use gloebits and our Gloebit services in all your products. But before using them you want to know what gloebits are and what you and your customers will experience when using them. This page aims to explain.

What are gloebits?

Gloebits are a universal digital or virtual currency. Think of a digital version of an old arcade token where Gloebit is the token kiosk, and the arcade encompasses all websites, games and applications connected to the internet. Consumers purchase gloebits in bulk. Developers/merchants accept gloebits in return for goods and services. They can then spend those gloebit proceeds with other merchants, or sell their gloebits for a "real-world" currency which can then be withdrawn.

Using gloebits makes it simple and inexpensive to accept micro-transactions/payments, provide multiple payment processing options to your consumers, market to an international audience, and maximize the monetization of your game or application.

How are gloebits different from bitcoins?

Unlike Bitcoin and other crypto-currency alt-coins, gloebits are centrally managed by Gloebit. Because of this, Gloebit can ensure stability of value of gloebits, speed and security of transactions, regulatory compliance, confidentiality of transaction records, and a low, stable fee for transactions. Gloebit also provides a simple purchasing mechanism to acquire gloebits with which consumers are comfortable, a set of APIs for fast easy integration by developers, and a simple mechanism for merchants to cash out earnings. Gloebit even allows consumers to purchase with bitcoins and merchants to sell their gloebit proceeds for bitcoins, so you can have all the benefits that Gloebit provides, and remain open to the community of bitcoin advocates.

If a consumer needs more gloebits, send them to us to top up their account. From the Gloebit website, users can purchase one of 5 packages of gloebits. We provide incentives for users to purchase more gloebits at one time, reducing payment processing costs, and passing those savings along to all users and developers.

Consumers have four payment options (credit card, Amazon, PayPal, bitcoin) and receive the benefit of all payment methods Gloebit adds in the future.
