In September 2022, Orbx introduced a reward program that allows customers to earn and redeem in-game currency (Orbs) through activities and specific products. Orbx and Volanta customers can accumulate Orbs through product purchases, Volanta premium subscriptions and completing other challenges. Orbs can be used to purchase Orbx products from a selected list which will rotate in the Orbs Store on a regular basis.
By signing up for an Orbx and Volanta account, you automatically enrol in the Orbs program, and acknowledge and agree to these Terms and Conditions. These Terms and Conditions are part of the Orbs program and it is important that you understand them fully. We reserve the right to change, suspend or discontinue these terms and conditions and the Orbs program at any time, without notice, although we will endeavour to notify you of any changes or modifications to the program with sufficient notice.
To the extent permitted by law, we will not be liable for any cause or consequence in connection with your Orbx account or use of Orbs.
Orbs are similar to frequent flyer points, and are earned by Orbx and Volanta users.
Joining is free and there are no fees to continue as a member. By becoming an Orbx or Volanta user, you automatically become an Orbs member.
Orbs can be earned in the following ways:
Orbs cannot be used (at this stage) for:
All accounts existing prior to the rollout of the Orbs system will be credited with an amount of “Starting Orbs.” Orbx and Volanta users can accumulate additional Orbs through product purchases, Volanta premium subscriptions and completing flight challenges.
The amount of Orbs earned vary depending on products purchased or type of challenge completed. It will be clear when you look at a product or are about to enter a challenge the amount of Orbs you will earn.
Each user account will be provided with an Orbs balance appearing next to their account username and a starting balance of Orbs. Users will be immediately able to spend their Orbs on the Orbs Store. Orbs are consequently deducted following the successful purchase of a product on the Orbs Store.
Your Orbs balance will appear next to your account username, once logged into your Orbx and Volanta account.
Please contact our support team who will be able to assist you in merging your Orbs accounts together.
The total balance of Orbs will expire when a user account has not earned or redeemed Orbs for 12 months.
Orbs points cannot be transferred from one account to another.
If you have any queries regarding the Orbs program, please contact us. You can do this by contacting us via our Support team page of our Website.
