All of G2As keys are purchased from other providers, who pay the publisher, who pay the developer. From a consumer perspective, if all you want is a cheap game key, we believe G2A sincerely wants to give that to you without it failing. It tells you which platforms the games are available for on the page, and allows you to choose your language upfront. Please steer clear of G2A, pay a small amount extra and buy the game on Steam and you will be a much happier person. If you're going to use a greymarket key site, at least use a trustworthy one like Greenman.
Lastly they offer a 10% cut to publishers for anything sold on their site. Can any of you guys confirm that this 2 products bellow will in fact work in my country Portugal? Maybe one large company who are trying to clean up an inherently dodgy business model is better than the alternative. If a game looks decent but lacking in some areas I buy through g2a or humble bundle or another third party. Too bad because they really seem to have good prices on lots of stuff and I would've bought lots more keys from them, even with the Shield subscription which I didn't subscribe to it would've been good value. I got the key and worked right away.
Then we learned that he made a record in sales in the 1st week of the game. It just doesn't work when you don't have vpn up. Hence why they can't do anything legally towards retailers reselling their games. Mean while every other company around the world doesn't charge people for having online accounts open and inactive. Region-exploiting keys move consumer spending toward the lowest prices available worldwide, and though we understand games are getting more expensive these days, so is development. Bitskins Sites like G2A If searching for G2A like sites for in-game items like skins then why not Bitskins?! I just bought blackops 3 using a Indian creditcard and Indian vpn and activated it successfully on steam using Indian vpn. And yeah, that was my point.
Become a part of a four-person Ghost squad to take action against violent drug cartels. And why isn't the site shut down? The key may work or it may not. I just bought blackops 3 using a Indian creditcard and Indian vpn and activated it successfully on steam using Indian vpn. I hope you can process that. I personally do not recommend making any such purchases as it may be a waste of money. Conclusion The above stated stuff suggests all the alternatives for sites like G2A for discounts, gamekeys, giftcards etc.
Posted on 22 February 18 at 16:00 But I literally just said that. There's no way to know if the key you are buying is actually legit or not, unless you pay them for a guarantee. That is why we are forced to close your account, our apologies for inconveniences. G2A may be trying to make working with them as hassle-free as possible, but from our perspective as consumers, the easiest way to give indies our support is still to buy direct. In response to feedback, they have changed their systems and designed new services, such as Direct and Pay, to protect against some of the hazards of a grey market. You can't prove that intent.
After all they are the ones who sold to a stolen credit card. I somehow managed to change my rating from negative to positive that was my error navigating the G2A website so the seller now really doesn't have any incentive to fix my problem. If you didnt verify than you are no different than anyone who uses G2A. I've never paid for G2A shield once, and when I do get an invalid or used key, I just message the seller and they respond a couple hours to a day later. Yes they do exist, are technically RoW, but are a pain in the ass to deal with. If you wish to approach your target aggressively and in the open, nothing will stop your from doing that. But now someone has your game and is selling it on G2A for 100% profit while the person who actually paid for it.
But you don't know if that person that is essentially going to use that key they bought from G2A or any grey market site would have bought it for full price, anyway, or wait for a Steam sale down the line. G2A is The point was that if you're going to be illegitimate, pirated copies are typically guaranteed to work and it costs you nothing. Some keys from unauthorised resellers were acquired then the. That is literally the statement you make when you pay your money to G2A instead of the people who actually make the game you love. G2A say no developer or publisher has been able to prove their listed keys were sourced illegally.
Customers can purchase G2A Deal in two ways, either as a subscription or as a one-time purchase. G2A is not an authorized reseller. Imagine a customer purchases a key on another platform and decides to re-sell it on our marketplace. The implication is that this feature is exclusive to Direct, which Hartsman compares to a protection racket. So get to working on something worth downloading! Should You Buy From G2A? It is a fraud fueled marketplace that doesn't give a damn who they are damaging.
Ive bought a standart uplay key without protection and everything worked fine. When I approached G2A directly, they simply asked me to work it out with their seller. Like G2A prepaid cards can also be brought. Im not saying dont use G2A you spend your money however you want but lets at least be honest about it and say you dont give a shit how G2A got the key just that you are getting a great deal on a game. So, yeah, be careful and buy from the site itself and not from users i guess! Those prices are for people and regions where the situation requires it. What happens if you went and bought a game, and on your way home you were mugged. Quite pleasantly surprisingly enough though, I got on the chat with Microsoft not an idiot ambassador and they basically gave me a new code after a little bit of back and forth.
I don't know why they have this price discrepancy. They are an ebay or kijiji of gaming. You know what I meant. With Shield, Direct, and 100% chargeback and fraud protection for sellers, G2A are doing more than most to protect merchants and customers from the intrinsic harms of a grey market. If you're in one country and try to claim another countries code, like I said it won't work.
