For over a decade, IVG has provided a platform for Indian gamers to meet like-minded people and discuss their passion for games in a friendly and welcoming environment. What began as a message board in 2006, has grown into a comprehensive community for all things gaming.
We have always resisted the temptation to monetise the IVG community, and we are determined to keep it that way. We believe the IVG forums should remain accessible to everyone for free. However, as we look to the future, we could use all the help we can get to ensure that IVG continues to function smoothly, while being steadily updated with the newest community features.
To that end, we have set up a system to accept voluntary donations from members and readers who would like to support us in keeping the IVG community going strong. There are several ways that you can do this.
Option 1: Automated monthly contributions
If you’d like to make regular contributions to IVG, we offer automatic monthly donations in three denomination options. Through this method, you would be charged every month for your chosen amount for a 12-month duration, with an option to stop any time.
We accept automated monthly payments in three denominations
- Rs 100
- Rs 500
- Rs 1,000
To set up monthly contributions via Razorpay, please fill out this form and we’ll send you a payment link.
Option 2: Single contribution
You can also choose to make a single contribution for an amount of your choice. To do so, please click on the button below.
You can also make single contributions via PayPal.
What your financial contributions will help with. Every single Rupee that is contributed by the community will be used towards the community. These are some of the costs that would be covered through these contributions:
- Server costs
- Maintenance expenses
- Software and technical support expenses
- Upgrades and feature additions
If we find ourselves in a situation where contributions received exceed our costs, we will give those funds back to the IVG community by way of contests and giveaways
Can’t contribute financially? You can still help
We understand that many users may not be able to contribute to IVG financially, and that’s okay. But there are several other ways through which you can show your support.
Use our affiliate tags when you shop at Amazon
If you shop at Amazon, you can help us by using our Affiliate tag or links before adding items to your shopping cart. This way, we earn a small commission on your purchase. There are two ways to do this:
- Affiliate tag: Simple add &tag=i030-21 to any Amazon product page URL before adding it to your cart
- Affiliate link: Visit Amazon through this link. Any purchase you make during that session will benefit us.
Show our podcast and social media channels some love
While the forums remain core to the IVG experience, social media is a great way for new gamers to find IVG. So it would be great if you could follow, like and subscribe to us on the following platforms
Thank you for being part of the IVG community.
Payments security and privacy: We use Razorpay’s payment gateway to receive all payments. It is a secure platform that is used by several established organisations such as RBL Bank and Hotstar. You can read their terms and conditions here. All payments happen entirely on the payment gateway. Rest assured that no payment information is collected, stored or accessible to IVG or any other third party. We also offer PayPal as an option, which is well established as a safe and secure payments platform.
