The successful indie developer Mojang is partnering with Skrill to operate its global online payment services.
The success of Minecraft, which recently passed sales of 3 million units, has prompted Mojang to increase the sophistication of its payment services.
Skrill has 19 million account holders worldwide, and processes 41 different currencies across a range of 100 payment options.
"The global success of Minecraft even took us by surprise," said Mojang's business developer Daniel Kaplan in a statement. "We are committed to meeting the demands of the fans from across the world who want to download the game and start building."
"By partnering with Skrill, we are able to accept payments from much further a field and take the game to new territories across the world by offering gamers numerous ways to pay for the game."
Mojang's founder, Markus Persson, recently received a legal letter from Bethesda's lawyers claiming that the studio's new project, Scrolls, infringes on the "Elder Scrolls" trademark.
