  • At DLsite, all payments are processed as regular credit card transactions. Purchases with check/debit card are not fully supported.
    Since the charges from us are sent and confirmed by your credit card company on the following day of the purchase, they may appear on your billing details a few days after the purchase as a charge from DLsite or ECON (ECONTEXT Company), our credit card payment agency. However, we do not make POS (Point-of-Sale) transactions with your card on our website, the charge will not be deducted from your bank account until a specified payment date. This is usually between the 7th and 11th of the following month, and it depends on your bank.
    Please note that we do not accept payment in installments.
  • "DLsite" will be mentioned on your card statement. The details of your purchases (e.g. titles) will not be mentioned.
  • Prepaid credit cards are most likely to be rejected in relation with the authentication of 3-D secure security system (see the following) and thus cannot be accepted.

  • If you use your check/debit card at DLsite, a small amount of money may be charged to your bank account immediately after the purchase.
    This comes from the card authorization process incorporated in our payment process. It is not a transaction fee and will be refunded at a later date.
    However, please note that the refund may take up to 2 months depending on your bank.
  • If you get an error message that says "credit card number is incorrect" upon entering correct information, setting 3-D Secure (authorization system) may solve the problem. For more details, please refer to [ About 3-D Secure ].
    If setting 3-D secure does not solve the problem, your card issuing company/bank may be blocking the purchase on DLsite.
    In such a case, please contact your card issuing company/bank for more details.
  • Depending on your card/bank, you may be required to pay an international transaction fee.
