Reliable when buying steam codes, can't speak for standalone downloads. Seems their servers can't handle the traffic brought by their summer sale, though.
To me, this site is a "risk" for anything you buy…
For example (which has happened multiple times):
When you "buy" a Steam DRM game which requires a key, there a chance you'll never receive a key, but your money will surely be gone.
What does this mean? About a week to get a refund from customer support, and another week to get that money back into your bank account…
Brilliant online games retailer, great sales and usually very good prices. Has a proprietary download program called Capsule, although it isn't mandatory as i always redeem game keys in Origin or Steam, Capsule also allows you to 'trade-in' old games from your computer for discounts on purchases, however the library titles that can be traded in is very small. GMG is only been around for 2 years and has a growing fan base and excellent support; they can be contacted via e-mail or through their forums. They've always been very helpful when I've had a problem.
It gives you the activation key for the specific game after you bought it. According to their policy: If we haven't gave you the activation key you can issue a refund.
good site for buying steam games 🙂 low price and fast delivery ….
During the "6 devilish deals every 6 hours for 6 days", greenmangaming.com offered a game for free.
After trying for quite a long time I gave up because you need to complete the shopping process within 15 minutes. But to finally checkout you need to load like 5 or six different sites.
The problem: the site
a) won't load at all (but try loading for 2 minutes befor giving up
b) return you a nice set of varying error messages
c) show the famous "maintenance" site.
Everyone who likes not to waste more than half an hour on trying to buy something you cannot get – be aware.
I for myself will never visit the site again – no matter what kind of hot deals they come up with.
Funfact: Earlier this day they sent out a newsletter containing the following sentence which can only be considered a bad joke:
"After some site issues during the first 24 hours of the sale, you’ll be happy to know we’ve massively boosted our site capacity – so you can shop till you drop! "
No massively boost – just massively FAIL GreenManGaming!
Fast and secure payments. However, i'm not sure how long the site will last – it hasn't got much customers.
Their payment process is beyond awful – first, they require that I create an account, and after doing so, I'm told the checkout process failed because the account needs to be verified through e-mail. I do that then reattempt the checkout – then they ask for some other card verification crap; I do that and the checkout fails again due to "maintenance."
I was skeptical of a site that claimed to allow "trading in" games and now I see my skepticism wasn't unnecessary.
Lying scumbags. Don't trust them.
