Battle.net Balance is an electronic balance you can use to purchase games and services from the Battle.net Shop.

Adding Battle.net Balance

You can add Battle.net Balance up to a maximum of €250/£200, or €110/£100 if you do not have an Authenticator linked to your account.

From the Battle.net Shop

You can purchase Battle.net Balance from the Battle.net Shop using our Accepted Payment Methods. The minimum purchase of Battle.net Balance is €1/£1.

To ensure the security of every Battle.net Balance transaction, there may be a delay of up to three days before Battle.net Balance becomes available for use after purchase. During this time, your order status will show as Pending.

Note: Direct debit users can use PayPal as an alternative method of payment.

Claiming a Code

Battle.net Balance code cards can be purchased from many online and physical retailers. To find out if your local retailer stocks Battle.net Balance cards, please contact the retailer directly. Codes can be claimed in Battle.net Account Management.

Using a WoW Token

Battle.net Balance can be obtained by choosing the Battle.net Balance option when using a WoW Token purchased for gold in World of Warcraft.

Using Battle.net Balance

You can use Battle.net Balance to purchase most products and services in the Battle.net Shop.

The currency of your Battle.net Balance must be the same as the currency displayed in the Shop to make a purchase. For example, if your Battle.net Balance is in Dollars, you will not be able to use it in the European Battle.net Shop because the European Shop charges in Euro. You can change the Shop region by scrolling down and clicking on the language dropdown.

Gifting Battle.net Balance

You can gift Battle.net Balance directly to a friend, or use your own Battle.net Balance to gift a product from the Battle.net Shop to a friend.
