A person can become a VIP member of MovieStarPlanet by purchasing one of four gift certificates from the game's website, as of April 2015. A total of 12 VIP packages exist, based on the length of time and the price paid for each VIP level.
The three levels of VIP membership include normal, super and elite. Customers may buy gift certificates that last for one week, one month, three months or one year. A one-week gift certificate costs about $4, as of April 2015. A one-year gift certificate is about $55.
Each level of VIP membership and gift certificate purchases provides players with rewards such as greater fame within the game, an increased number of friends allowed, and the ability to give more autographs. Players earn more star coins and diamonds, which are the types of virtual currency available within the game. A VIP membership gives players daily influxes of virtual currency, more spins on the daily star coin wheel, and exclusive VIP shop items in the virtual store. Virtual goods within the game include animations, virtual clothes and bonus features.
Players redeem a gift certificate by logging in to their MovieStarPlanet account, clicking the Settings button and then clicking Redeem Gift Certificate. Users then type in the code for the gift certificate. Players access their special items as soon as a gift certificate is redeemed.
