There are usually two ways of purchasing a vehicle on the Pledge Store. Each type has its benefits and drawbacks.
- Warbond: has to be paid with real money but is discounted slightly from the standalone price. Cannot be purchased with Store Credit
- Standalone: can be paid with real money, but can also be paid with Store Credit, but is usually slightly more expensive than a Warbond version.
A standalone ship is one not included in a game package. To access one such ship in game one has to have access to a game package containing a copy of Star Citizen base game. The purpose of standalone ships is to be able to buy another ship while not having to pay for a whole other copy of the game. Owning several copies of the base game allows a player access to another game character which can also be used as an NPC crewmember.
- Multiple packages. Transmission - Comm-Link
