What is the value of Steam cards

frequently asked Questions

Are there any restrictions on purchasing gift cards?

You and your friends must both have a Steam account and be on the respective friends list. You can buy digital gift cards on Steam for anyone who has been on your friends list for at least 3 days. Please note that you cannot use any existing Steam balance to purchase these digital gift cards.

What can my friends buy with their digital gift card?

The digital gift cards for your friends will be instantly available as Steam credits once the gift has been accepted. That means your friends can buy both games and microtransactions or items from the Steam Community Market.

Can I still shop for games for my friends as usual?

Sure, of course! Everyone is happy about an individual gift. If you already know what your friends want from the Steam Shop, you can also send the corresponding game directly as a gift via Steam. But if you're not quite sure what your friends really want for their birthday or special occasion, for example, then you can give them a great gift with a Steam Gift Card! With digital gift cards you can also take part in a larger game purchase or help with the purchase of items via microtransactions.

But what if my friends are abroad?

The digital gift card you purchased will automatically be converted into your friends' local currency.

What if my friends decline my digital gift card?

If your friends refuse your gift, your gift card purchase will be refunded. As far as possible, the refund will be made to your original payment method. If your payment method does not qualify for this, the amount will be credited to your own Steam account as Steam credit.

Can the market be restricted for me if I accept a digital gift card from a friend?

In the rare event that your account is subject to a market restriction when accepting a digital gift card, we will display a clear warning before acceptance in order to avoid surprises. If avoiding this restriction is important to you, you can wait until the date stated in the warning before accepting the gift. If no date is shown, there are no restrictions on accepting the gift.
