Overview

The Blue Mars Dollar (BLU) is the official virtual currency that can be used to purchase virtual items in Blue Mars. Users and Developers can now buy BLU using Google Checkout.
Clicking the Buy BLU button in Blue Mars (PC client version or Lite version) will open a direct link to the Google Checkout interface for buying BLU, which provides you with a secure method to input payment information.

NOTE: You will need a Google account (which will be linked to your Google Checkout account) to purchase BLU. If you don't have an account with Google, you will be asked to create one and to enter your payment information for Google Checkout during your purchase.
