Support GBAtemp and browse ad-free & more!

We have managed to achieve some pretty incredible things in the last month - we have successfully rebuilt the site from the ground-up on the latest forum software and have moved to an ultra powerful server to make the site faster and more responsive than ever! Behind the scenes, we are always looking for ways to improve our user experience and bring fresh & exciting content and features to the temp.

However, in order to make these things happen and to be able to keep providing you with fresh editorial content and to conserve our freedom as an independent community, free from the constraints of a parent media conglomerate; we need your help.

Previously we launched a campaign on Patreon to help support us but despite a positive response, it never really took off and we found being shackled behind Patreon's restrictions and terms too limiting.

That's why we are today launching our built-in user upgrades system!

Choose to support us directly on GBAtemp through our payment partners PayPal and Stripe and choose payment options such as Apple Pay, Google Pay, VISA etc. You can even choose to pay with your GBAtemp XP at a conversion rate of 1000XP = $1USD :D (more details to follow).

By supporting us you unlock the following exclusive features:
  • Complete ad-free access on desktop and mobile ($5pcm tier and up)
  • Early access to new site features
  • Early access to new site styles (tempStyle 3.2 NFO perhaps.....?)
  • Merchandise give-aways
  • A customisable banner that adorns your posts and profile
  • A custom palette and other customisable options for your blog and user profile
  • A listing on the Patron member page
  • Access to the patron exclusive chat room
  • That feeling that your supporting one of the longest running independent communities on the web - NEARLY 20 YEARS STRONG!

Please note that if you were previously a Patron - your upgrade is now deactivated as your last payment on Patreon was made over a month ago. Please consider resubscribing - your existing perk settings will be kept intact.​

Please visit our Account Upgrades page below for further information or feel free to ask any questions below.

Whether you choose to contribute or not, thank you all for your continued support and being members of the GBAtemp community!

I tried to pay with my XP, just to test it, and interestingly it let me purchase the Ad-free option for 5k XP, without me having 5K XP.

Is this supposed to happen? I'm now in negative 4k XP lol

EDIT: my XP was just reset back to 0. I'm guessing this wasn't supposed to happen haha
:rofl2: Cheeky git!

No that was an oversight by us and should no longer be possible. I will have to revert your account I hope you understand

Unfortunately I've had to remove this post from the frontpage while the payment problems are resolved.

Big hugs to everyone that tried.

UPDATE: Stripe should now be working, Paypal seems dependant on individual users luck?
