Welcome to Manga Reborn, Jam-Di =)
Hi newbie here~ The purpose of coins is to purchase manga here right? 1.) Umm... how can I get coins?
However, please note that the purchase of coins is not available in our beta release. We'll notify everyone when the feature is open.
2.) And if possible, when I uploaded a manga that worth coins, do I earn the coins from it?
Here at Manga Reborn, one can only upload Manga that they own the rights to. If you own a series and choose to charge a fee for it to be viewed by others, then you will earn a portion of the coins it generates.
3.) How can I know if how much coins can a manga worth?
The amount one charges for their series is entirely up to the owner / artist of that said series.
Hope this helps. If you have any further questions or concerns this or anything else, just post in the forum or contact one of our staff members
Is there any update as to when it will be possible to purchase coins?
Unfortunately, I don't have much of an update for you at this time. However and if I remember correctly, around the beginning of March the devs were shooting for a late April release ( it was on facebook, twitter, or tumblr I believe ). Hopefully that general timetable is still in place and we will see the site go 100% live soon. :D

I see that the there is an update concerning purchasing coins, and that the note at the top of the home page directs you to a separate (apparently dev/working) server. When I try to proceed I am met with a popup login (not like the normal user login page, this is a mechanism commonly used when there is desire to test a webpage on the actual internet without opening it up to everyone just yet). Just out of curiosity I tried my credentials to no avail.
yea.. the popup login is for dev/testing stuff which users don't have access to. I am not sure if this was done on purpose or if it was just a mistake since on the Japanese side of the site the correct link is posted. Because of that, I won't change the announcement right now until I get some clarification on the issue. However, the correct link would be ( http://en.mangareborn.jp/mypage/point_history ). I personally haven't tried it out yet so I don't know how functional it is at this moment... >.>;
Thank you for your questions about the coin system.
Now, you can buy coins and use them to purchase whatever manga you like!
I hope that everyone takes advantage of the new coins system in order to enjoy all the manga we have to offer!

Firstly, I'd like to say thank you to the MR team who has been working so hard on getting the English version of the site fully up and running. I can't wait to see this place flourish.
I checked the "Buy Coins" page again just now, and it still takes me to the Japanese version, as it lists the coin denominations with prices in Japanese yen rather than US dollars. Additionally, when I tried to proceed, I noticed a couple things missing that I found unusual. Typically, when you buy something online with a card, you have to specify what type of card you're using. The purchase page does not ask what type of card you're using nor does it tell you what types are accepted (Visa, MasterCard, etc.). Beyond that, there is typically a field where you have to input your name as it is shown on the card. At first, I thought that the yen values simply needed to be changed to US dollar values, but these other points have made me rather less sure.
As the majority of my translations thus far have been for paid manga, I'm very anxious to see them become available to English-speakers, as the stories are all quite good.
Keep up the great work!
I see that the link in the notice has been fixed and further that the information on the coin purchase page has been updated to indicate that it is only currently available for UBC and UC cards. I will continue to check in periodically.
Thanks to the developers, vintagemistakes, and uenojunta for the work and the updates.
Hi Rai and fbdcbggffb
The coin system was updated last weekend.
Please check the system and if you find anything wrong, could you tell us?
We going to add Paypal functionality as soon as possible. Paypal is more useful with worldwide transactions!
When we are ready, we'll make another announcement.

The "Coins Options" page is much clearer and easier to understand now. PayPal will be very helpful in expediting the transaction process, so I'm happy to hear it will be implemented as well.
