Mainland Pricing and Fees
Land Use Fees
The cost of land itself is based on demand and can fluctuate with the market. Check out our Purchasing Land page for different ways to acquire land.
The Land Use Fee (also known as a Tier Fee) is a monthly charge in addition to membership fees (i.e., US$9.50/month Premium Membership). Land use fees are billed based on the peak amount of land held during your previous 30 day billing cycle.
Premium accounts are granted a 512 sqm bonus lease before land use fees are applied. The chart below shows the fees for all land you hold or tier you donate beyond the 512 sqm bonus.
