    My brother get some games from them now and then and has no issues what so ever.

    Me, Their "security system" is rejecting every order and for no reason. The support guy I spoke to says that I need to make sure the G2A account is in my name, and matches the card used to pay, it does.

    I cant see why this is happening. They now have £8.12 from me and I have nothing to show for it.

    What a waste of space..

    If the G2A account is in my name, the card i use to pay is also in my name and the email, telephone number and address etc are all correct then there should be no issue!

    Contact your bank. I have issues with my bank card on some sites where the bank blocks the transaction for security risks. If you contact them and tell them its legit it will usually go through.

    I bet your bank card was blocked by your banks security for making out of the ordinary transactions this happens a lot & you should get a text from your bank with instructions how to unblock your card, nothing to do with G2A.

    Its not a bank issue, the money left my account fine and my bank txt me to authorize any "odd" payments to make sure its me, and this did not happen...

    Its not an IP issue either... Me and my brother don't live together. And I am the only person in the house that has ever used G2A.

    It would help if G2A would tell me the exact reason for being rejected. But they either cant or wont.

    If they aren't going to help you, then I would contact your bank and dispute the charges.

    Terrible company they sell the same windows keys to as many people as they can, they have sold many stolen keys in the past and keys connected to CC fraud.

    But are we surprised they have sold games in the past for waaaaay under retail price, much better alternatives out there imo.

    cdkeys and gmg are my goto sites or just vpn's on origin :p

    Its totally fine if you buy from G2A, but if you buy from some guy that sells via G2A well then that's your bad choice, common sense should kick in.

    Never had issues with G2A, but I've only used them about 3-5 times. Nowadays I just buy my games directly from Steam/Origin/Battle.net because they are the only ones that can guarantee pre-load and minute 1 unlock.

    Cos you need to chose the correct vendor and also exclude g2a-shield. Gog Version is also 10$ cheaper.

    I did choose the correct vendor. It says its out of stock also. GOG version is $39.99 How is that $10 cheaper?

    I just used them for the first time last night and had zero problems. Got a great deal on a great game and a 100% legitimate key for use on GOG :pc1:
