Buying Steam Cards and codes cost more than the credits that we get. In this article, you’ll learn how you can buy 1:1 Steam credits (1 Steam Credit: 1 Peso).

 

How we buy Steam Credits today: Steam Cards/ Codes from retail stores, pc shops, online portals

 

The problem? You don’t get exactly what you paid for (ex. P1000 Steam credits can cost P1.13k). Some places that sell codes charge even higher because they use the technology of another party that allows them to generate the codes. Steam cards that are sold don’t follow updated USD to PHP conversion rates (ex. $1= P50 vs $1=P48.37). We visited retail stores, asked around pc shops, researched online portals, and concluded that gamers end up paying up to 20% more than they get.

Everyone wants to get their money’s worth, but the only other option is a credit card. The issue is, credit cards aren’t an option for a lot of people. Your best alternative? Download the PayMaya app.
