Club Penguin Insiders Coins and & CPI Marketplace

CPI is introducing a new online virtual currency for use on the forums, for those familiar with WI Bucks, it's the same thing! Through activities on the forum you can earn Coins to spend in the marketplace to earn all sorts of cool items! You can invest in banks to save money or invest in stocks, with plenty of ways to earn and spend coins, there is always much to do!

Earning Coins
To be able to spend coins, you need to earn them first! It's really easy though you can earn coins from any of the following activities:
Creating Topics
Making forum posts (Best way to earn coins, different forums earn you a different number of coins - coins per post range from 2 to 40)
Earning Reputation
Giving reputation
Posting profile messages (You will only receive points for one profile message per hour)
Receiving profile message (You will only receive points for one profile message per hour)
Referring users
Receiving donations from users
Entering the random points raffle
Investing in Banks
Investing in stocks


Every time you do one of the above actions, a different number of coins are added to your account depending on the activity! That's all there is to earning coins, just carry on using the forum as you normally do and watch your coins add up!

You do not receive coins for using the Private Messaging System
The more active you are on the forums the more coins you earn to spend on items!


Spending Coins
You can buy items at the Marketplace, you can visit there by clicking the link title Marketplace in the forum's main menu.
In the market place you can control how you spend your coins. Spending coins can be a little bit confusing so read below carefully!

  • Shop
  • All items are bought from the Shop. To find the Shop go to the Marketplace (using the link at the top) and click on the tab titled "Shop".
  • Each category (e.g. Profile Changes) has items inside it, click on different category names to see the items inside,
  • Or you can click on all items on the left sidebar to view every available item!
Take a look at the following image to see exactly where to click.

To buy an item, enter the number of that item you want to buy in the box next to "Purchase Quantity" and click "Add to cart"
For example if you wanted to buy 3 of the "Change Avatar" item you would put 3 in the box next to Purchase Quantity and then click the blue "Add to Cart" button.
A cart is just like a really life shopping cart, you put the items you want to buy inside and then you take it to the checkout. This way it saves you time if you are buying multiple items!

After that you can return to add more items to your cart, or buy the items you already have in your cart.
To pay for your items you can click the Cashier tab at the top what is in your cart.
To buy the items in your cart click the blue button labelled 1-click purchase.

Items you buy are not automatically used
To use an item go to the My Portfolio Tab and then click My Shop Items
Click on the name of the item you want to use and then press the blue button labelled Use Item

Banks
You can invest your money in banks, they work the same way as in real life.
First you need to choose a bank and open a bank account.
You then can choose how many of your coins you want to deposit

Nope you can change your avatar as many times are you want! You can change your avatar normally, these will be for special avatars, they just haven't been configured yet.
