Purely for "fun stuff and services", not game-changing purchases, apparently.

We learned last week that The Elder Scrolls Online would feature a monthly subscription fee, but now it looks like Zenimax will also be implementing an in-game store as well.
Game director Matt Firor said in a video interview with ESOHub.de that “there won’t be anything like bonus points, but we will have a shop to buy kind of fun stuff and services too like name changes and things like that”.
Firor went on to claim that the microtransactions will “not be part of the core game”, and that “anything included in the core game is included in the subscription price”.
Interesting move from Zenimax, given the presence of the subscription fee as well. Time will tell how it pays off.
