Microtransactions are the purchase of in-game content or premium account features in exchange for microtransaction points, which are purchased with real world money.
Path of Exile is a free-to-play game that is supported monetarily through its microtransaction features. The policy of Grinding Gear Games regarding microtransactions is that they should not confer any significant advantage to the player. Microtransaction features are primarily cosmetic in nature or provide peripheral utility in the case of additional stash tabs and character slots.
How to purchase
The features available through microtransaction purchases are not otherwise available through playing the game. They are also not necessary for completing any of the game content.
Navigate to pathofexile.com and activate the Shop link in the main menu. On the Purchase page, a player can purchase Points for real money. A player can then browse the Shop and buy microtransaction features with Points.
