English term or phrase: microtransaction
Definition from pixelkin:
an online financial transaction that involves a small amount of money (less than $12). Many games, especially mobile or casual games, involve microtransactions. Sometimes microtransactions can add up and cause financial problems.

Example sentence(s):
  • Microtransactions can be beneficial to the consumer in that they allow 'free to play' games such as the multitude of mobile games available and the most popular game on the planet - League of Legends - to be financially viable. tremr
  • This lead to a lot of community outrage as people didn’t want or like microtransactions in the video game. Medium
  • When you look at it in this light you can really see why Games As Service have taken off in recent years, and why the industry puts so much emphasis on microtransactions, whether those are skins in Fortnite (a game the NPD doesn't even track) reticles in Black Ops 4 or Gold Bars in Red Dead Online.
