A screenshot of microtransactions in 8 Ball Pool

In-app purchases (also known as 'microtransactions') are a function of 8 Ball Pool, and are a popular business model with many other Miniclip games. They allow the player to purchase virtual goods through the use of their credit card or referral card (e.g. iTunes card or a Google Play Store card); in 8 Ball Pool, players can purchase Pool Cash or Pool Coins.

The function is also an aspect of the Facebook and mobile versions of 8 Ball Pool, functioning in an identical way; however, on the mobile version, players may purchase through the use of referral codes. Below is a list of available microtransactions.
