What is Donate Time?
"Donate Game Time" is an easy way to use PLEX to instantly gift 30 days of game time to another character (more information about PLEX can be found in the Knowledgebase article about PLEX
How to use "Donate Game Time"
To use the "Donate Game Time" feature you need to have at least one PLEX available in your inventory.
Check out the animation below for a visual guide and read on for more details.
Simply right-click on the PLEX icon and then choose the "Activate PLEX" option from the popup menu. This will open a new window which shows several services available.
At the bottom of this window you will see the "Donate 30 days of game time" option. In the text field, type the name of the character you would like to donate the game time to.
As you type the character name, you will see a list populate with character names that match the text you have entered. Once their name appears, click on the character you would like to donate the game time to.
Once you have selected a character, the Donate button to the right will become clickable. Click the Donate button to start donating the game time.
The Donate button switches to a teal colored Confirm button.
You have 5 seconds to confirm your decision by clicking the button. Afterwards the Confirm button turns back to the Donate button and you will have to re-confirm your choice.
If you have selected the wrong character, you simply can remove the character by clicking the little white X in the text field.
Why use Donate Game Time?
With Donate Game Time you can give game time directly to your friends or to your own alt accounts without going through the process of transferring PLEX to another character, who would then have to actively use that PLEX themselves. It is also a very simple way to activate inactive accounts.
Donate Game Time saves you and the receiving character some time as you transfer the benefits from using PLEX instantly.
Donate Game Time to inactive and trial accounts
If the receiving character resides on an inactive account, the Donate Game Time feature will activate that account and 30 days of game time will be added.
If the receiving character is a trial account, the Donate Game Time feature will convert that account to a full subscribing account and adds 30 days of game time to that account. All trial account restrictions will be lifted.
Donate Game Time and the Buddy Program
If trial accounts invited via the Buddy Program are converted to fully subscribed accounts via the Donate Game Time feature, then the Buddy inviter will receive a reward just as if the trial account owner would have used a PLEX to upgrade the account.
More information about the Buddy Program can be found on the EVE Online Account Management

Introducing the new EVE Online Starter Pack! Designed from the ground up to kickstart a new pilot's career, the Core Starter Pack features a full arsenal of skills and gear for miners and crafters.
The Core Starter Pack includes:
Leave all your options open and be ready for anything with the Premium Starter Pack. Everything from the Core Starter Pack and all four Add-Ons are included. We’ve also added some of the hottest battleship skins and PLEX, an in-game token worth 30 additional days of game time that can be used or traded on the EVE market. Be prepared for wherever your adventurous spirit wants to take you with the Premium Edition.
The Premium Edition includes:
PLEX is 30 days of game time in the form of a tradeable in-game item. If you need extra EVE currency (ISK), you can purchase PLEX for real money directly from Steam or through Account Management and sell it to other players on the in-game market. On the other hand, if you earn enough ISK, you can purchase PLEX from other players on the market and use it to extend your subscription – effectively playing for free.
PLEX is actively traded between players and can be found in every major trade hub of EVE Online. It is only consumed when you activate it, affording you the freedom to use it when and where you need it most.
Selling PLEX to boost your in-game wallet and buying PLEX to pay your subscription using in-game currency are just two of its many uses. PLEX can also be used to purchase various account services or even to pay for out of game events and products.
