Launched in 1999, Neopets, is a virtual world of pets. You play games, solve puzzles, find treats, and indulge in various fun and adventurous activities. The coolest part is the game allows you to earn currency called Neopoints and shop for your pet’s clothes, build home for them, and furnish it. It also has a premium currency called Neocash which you can buy with real money.
Shopping with Neocash
In 2007, Neopets introduced a Neocash mall. This mall allows the user to purchase wearable and non-wearable items and participate in various events. It is not like the regular Neopian shop. To shop at the NC mall, you need Neocash. You will have to buy this currency from real-life money. The mall is available in several countries and it can be accessed in multiple languages including Spanish, German, Dutch, French, and Portuguese but if you want to see the latest items you’ll have to play in English since all the other languages were dropped when Viacom sold Neopets to Jumpstart.
By now, it must be clear that Neocash is a virtual Neopian currency that you have to buy through US dollars or your country’s currency. Shopping at the NC mall is for everyone. You don’t need to be a Neopets player for that.
Before 2014, NC supported Monkey Quest, Petpet Park, and Habitarium. If you still have NC purchased from any of these sites, you can spend it on Neopets. Those who are die-hard fans of the game must buy Neocash cards. It lets you shop for premium items in the NC mall such as decorative items for the pets and home, and offer access to exclusive games.
