Was going to post this here https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/boards/916373-pc/76482079 because it's related, but the topic is already archived, like why do topics get archived so fast here?

Bought a game on G2A, actually bought a few at once, no Shield on any of them, one of them was a used key.

Sorry you're citing the sale of an already-used key and the fact the company refunded it as they are legally required to do as a positivie...?

Look at some of the posts in the topic I would have preferred to put this in and it'll make sense.

You even made some erroneous posts in the topic I linked, @Dragon_Nexus, so this submission should actually be some educational info for you, not sure why you'd get snarky.

The fact you need to pay money to ensure the thing you bought actually works should tip you off as to what kind of site you're dealing with.

You notice G2A doesn't make much of an effort to combat the stolen goods and such. Oh but they'll gladly make money selling you "insurance" to protect your purchase.


Didn't need insurance to protect my purchase.

It's shady because instead of actually fixing the issues they ask for money to protect you when they occur.

It's like if a company made Pc parts which they knew had a 15% chance of catching fire. But instead of recalling it and fixing the issue they offered you a payment plan to get you a new part if it did happen to catch fire.


Again I didn't need insurance to protect my purchase.

It sounds like you should be more surprised by what I've provided here, considering your stance from the other topic was "They won't help you without shady insurance" and now you're acting like nobody should be surprised that they would help them without insurance.

Not sure how that is in G2A's "favor". The fact that it is a used game key is extremely fishy in the first place. I prefer my keys not to get revoked because they were gotten illegitimately. Not worth some minor cost savings.

When I took the 360 version of ME2 back to BestBuy and tried to swap it because the Cerberus Code didn't work (also already activated), I had to push a lot harder to get them to open another copy and give me the voucher than I had to push with "shady G2A" to get a refund for the same sort of issue.

I don't see how a used game key is fishy. It could be something as bad as the seller using it themselves and then selling it for the $12CDN I paid which well if they need the money, seems really unlikely they'd do it over such a small amount though since it will risk their account closure. Or it could be something as innocent as "accidentally listed the same key twice" (not necessarily simultaneously but sold it once, forgot and relisted it, or sold it on a different site), which isn't fishy because with big sellers I can see it happening (again the ME2 example) and would actually only be fishy if G2A put up a fight trying to stop me from getting a new key or refund.

Not exactly minor, g2a usually has games upto 50% cheaper than Steam even when they're on sale.
Black ops 2 for instance is still $30 on steam even when on sale and I managed to get it off g2a for $15.

Haters gonna hate. Also this goes back to the subject of first-party Steam keys being revoked.

i hope you paid with paypal. otherwise have fun waiting 14+ days on the refund. if they even decide to give it to you. (my refund got revoked after about 7 days when i used g2a.. i guess they changed their mind)

" credit card refunds may even take up to 28 business days to go through. Also, some payment methods may only be refunded to your G2A Wallet and require 14 days processing time to become available for use." also if they're refunded to your g2a wallet you may need to deal with currency conversion and transfer fees on top of the rest of the hassle you've already been through. good luck though ! i prefer to buy games that work when i buy them and not have to wait for maybe a full refund to maybe my original payment method. hope saving a buck was worth it xD
