What is the Arc Client?
Install Arc

Zen store, alternate currencies.

Can we get an option to but in a currency other than US? As someone living in Australia, I would like to know exactly how much I am going to be charged.
Time is a funny thing; There is always too much of it. Except when you need it the most, then there is never enough.

    Assuming you are launching the game through Steam, when you actually try to buy Zen it should bring up a Steam purchase window saying how much it will cost in whatever currency you use in Steam, (possibly including tax) `assuming you have money in your account. Don't know for sure how currency conversion for STO works, but 100 zen is equal to $1 US, if that helps any.

    Is there not a way to get zen without actually using real time money?
    In eve online you can buy plex with ingame money and more.

    You can buy zen with dilithium in-game.

    It is however a player-driven currency exchange, not a straight purchase.

    At present, the exchange rate is stuck at the price cap (500 dilithium per zen) and there is a waiting list, due to a supply/demand imbalance. The most recent postings I have seen are saying that people have been having to wait four to six days.

    When I charge Zen through the website, the prices show up in £'s.
    If you're having issues with currency, that might be the way to do it.
