      Hey there. Sometimes BTC payment should be confirmed directly with the payment operator - BitBay. I strongly suggest contacting our support through Twitter, they will check what's going on and advise what can be done.

    so i have a question, the game i am wanting is called "Poker Night at the Inventory". the only place to get it is G2A now, because they removed it on Steam. But, with the keys i have really high suspicion of it though, and i am really getting upset over it. could you let me know if it is safe to get it?

    I purchased Skyrim V Elder scrolls & the game was absolutely broken & unstable. I would not even make it into the the first min of the game. I would not recommend 'G2A' in any matter! Buy directly from the publisher & support them! I contacted G2A's support & they basically just stated that they just provide the key & they have an 3rd party that sells through their website & they also tried to blame my hardware / software for the issue. I ran the official version I purchased afterwards without any issues.

    I tried buying GTA 5 on G2A and it cancelled and when I logged out, I was locked out. I haven't been able to sign into any account for the past month. I even tried using a VPN because I thought it must have been my IP but it just won't let me sign back in, which means I can't buy anything off that website. Trash

    The ad at the end is disingenuous and you have lost credibility. "Military Grade Encryption" does not exist. "Military Grade" is a buzzword to reel in the idiots. 7 years in the Marines (Active 2nd Recon) 5 years as an Academi Protection Specialist, I can tell you that there are actually better civilian options for a lot of "military grade" products. Because at the end of the day, the military DoD does not buy from the best, they buy from the cheapest seller. The Sig M17 was not the preferred sidearm by the Army Grunts (it didn't even passed testing) they preferred the Glock or Beretta (both passed testing). But the Sig was 30% cheaper and is now the "Military Grade" Standard sidearm of the U.S. Army. #Capitalism

    G2A does work fine, people here mostly use it because they dont have supported payment method for actual distribution website. But kinguin did fk me up twice... they charged me the money then asked me to verify using ids and stuff which i am definitely not gonna do. They dont refund nor reply tickets....

    Region pricing policy is based on how much people earn in certain region to maximize profits of sold copies. I live in Czechia my country region is considered europe (naturally). However prices of games for europe are the same as for the U.S. (because: Germany, France, Britain) so lets pretend we are in the same region. Median income after taxes in the united states 39 000$. Median income after taxes 12 000$. Imagine if a new AAA game costed around 180$ sudenly there is an option to buy the game but for another region (russia) which makes much more sense because russian median is much closer to your median than the west one. It is still like 80$ to you but fkc it you buy it cause you like the game. That is what the situation is like for gamers in east europe. Same applies for PC parts (even though it is more jutifiable) + 20 duty tax (because we are in EU). Your morales would change significatly if you were in the same situation.
