Steam makes more issues for The K-J competition group
Gift can't be sent due to regional price differences
Today I was on my way to sent a game to one that got the gift ticket from the Christmas competition in 2018 and I got a message that says "Due to regional price differences, the gift you are trying to send cannot be sent to the recipient's region." For the first time today and I see that everyone else gets it too when they try to gift someone else in few other another country.
This is just an example from 2017: In an email sent to Steam, the following countries will be adding region-appropriate sales tax to all purchases, from the months listed:
- March 2017:
- Switzerland 8%
- South Korea 10%
- Japan 8%
- New Zealand 15%
- Iceland 24%
- South Africa 14%
- India 15%
- April 2017:
- Serbia 20%
- May 2017:
- Taiwan 5%
- July 2017:
- Australia 10%
So because of this I can't send Games or DLC, will this mean I need to close the K-J contest. NO! there is other way to sent games on Steam. I tryed out G2A today and the person who didn't get the game because of Steam got a key instead from G2A and received the game on steam in that way instead.
I still have to pay a small fee, but that doesn't better if you win and you want that game I will make sure you get it in may or an other. So don't worry about the regional price differences on Steam. The contest is global and it will stay that way, it's just irritating that Steam makes it difficult sometimes.
So if I can't gift you the game on Steam, you will receive a G2A key instead
I wish you all a great day and thank you for joining the contest!
