I can't buy a zone in member?

I was excited about the aquila 50% off to pay for the zone with crowns. But the problem here is that there is no way to pay the zones as a member since when you enter the zones you don't get a screen. My membership is about to end soon (probably after this offer ends first). So is there a way to pay the zones while your a member?

I guess the logistics of it would not allow you to rent the game and pay for parts of it but I wouldn't mind that set up because by now probably would of purchased the game a long the way and could stop renting it.

Maybe it's more profitable to have members subbing the game rather then purchasing it out right? Reduced area pricing doesn't seem to come up on sale much so it is rough to miss one.

Quick answer, the buy zone window will not appear if you are a member. I also was not happy about the inability to buy those areas. Maybe they will run the sale again.

Yep, this has been a common complaint. I already bought the only dungeon in Aquila that I've unlocked so far so this doesn't apply to me. But a lot of people could save a lot, but they can't. I think you should be able to buy an area, no matter what. Also, I think you should be able to buy worlds all the zones at the same time. Saves a lot of time and also you won't get distracted by wanting to buy crowns gear instead of saving up for the next area.
Anyways, this is a problem, yeah.

I was looking for a post I did regarding this same issue. Maybe if we send ticket to support they might be able to sell us the zone from there and reducing the amount of crowns?

In essence members are being penalized by KI by not allowing a zone purchase system. They have such a great game,and yet they constantly perplex me on some of there methods.

A simple solution to this would be to add zones to the crown shop. Grey out ones that are already owned on that account. As a member who started with crowns, I know the game remembers the areas bought anyways. When my membership ran out briefly last year I still had access to all the zones I bought prior to being a member still.

I think a good idea is to pot up a zone purchase on the site so that some, can just buy the crowns and then just buy the zone. I also think the buying of a zone in the crown shop isn't a bad idea.
