Software Simulations
Credit Card startup page for play-by-mail and play-by-email games provided by Software Simulations and Ab Initio Games.

You can pay for starter packs (rules, startup and two free turns) in any of our games using the secure server at 2Checkout. Existing customers should use the payments section inside the main softim website.

We quote startup fees in UK Pounds (Sterling), US Dollars, and Australian Dollars. If you use a different currency, then select UK Pounds and use the "Choose your currency" system within the 2Checkout procedure to get an exact quote in your own currency before you confirm the transaction.

Notification of payments can take up to 48 hours to reach us.

AU Dollars

If your currency is one that 2Checkout doesn't handle you can still make payments in UK Pounds and your credit card company will make the conversion for you - the only difference is we can't tell you in advance exactly what the charge will be in your own currency.

In case of difficulties email Danny McConnell.
