We have tried to keep the terms and conditions in this text as simple and clear as possible, so we will not baffle you with all kinds of difficult definitions or incomprehensible language.
We do our best to make you aware of our terms and conditions, as it discusses what we do for you and what we expect from you as a customer from Gamecardsdirect. Sometimes, we offer separate terms and conditions for a product, in which case these General Terms and Conditions also apply, unless they conflict with the general terms and conditions of our partners and suppliers.
We will inform you about the price of the product, how you can use the product and if there are any additional fees such as transaction fees. On top of that, we will let you know if the product is refundable. That is our promise to you!
We do everything in our power to prevent fraud, but unfortunately fraudsters are getting smarter.
We notice that fraudsters are continuesly finding new ways to trick people. If you place an order with Gamecarsdirect, the digital product you ordered is meant for your eyes and no one else.
Unfortunately, smart tricks are being invented more and more often to make you take away the codes. Do not participate in these tricks! If you give your unique code to someone else, you will not get a refund of the value of the product. Nor can we send you the code again. One of the tricks fraudsters use is them responding to something you are selling. The scammer asks you to send your package insured. According to the fraudster, this requires you to buy a gift card from Gamecardsdirect. A giftcard is not a legitimate payment method for insured shipping. Therefore, please pay close attention to what the fraudster asks of you and when in doubt, contact the fraud helpdesk of your region or the local authorities! Do not participate in further engagement of these fraudsters.
At Gamecardirect.com, we ensure your purchases will be done in a secure web environment that is built and maintained by third-party specialists. If you place an order with us, you will receive the code directly by email. There are, however, a few exceptions, depending on the payment method you use. Read more about those exceptions at our payment methods page.
