How do Green Man Gaming's digital codes work?
When you buy a game from Green Man Gaming, you'll be provided with an alpha-numeric product code you'll need to redeem through the relevant digital platform software. For example, if you purchase a Steam game from Green Man Gaming, you'll need to open the Steam client software, select the 'Activate a Product on Steam' option, and type in the provided product code to add your new game to your Steam account.
Once activated, any game you purchase from Green Man Gaming will be subject to the standard restrictions of the platform you purchased it for. Typically, this means you'll need to be connected to the internet to play it, so keep that in mind when browsing what's on offer. You can see what platform applies to a game--this is also often referred to as DRM--below the 'Add to basket' button on a game's store page.
Will every game on Green Man Gaming work in Australia?
Green Man Gaming detects the country you're purchasing from based on your internet connection and only lets you buy games that will work in your region. As long as you aren't using a proxy or VPN to hide your location, and your relevant Steam, PSN, or other digital platform account is registered to Australia, all games bought through Green Man Gaming will activate without issue.
What currency does Green Man Gaming use?
Prices listed on Green Man Gaming are in USD, so you'll need to consider the current exchange rate as you're browsing to determine the cost in Aussie dollars. Your chosen payment method will be charged in USD, too, so you may have to pay extra if your bank charges currency conversion fees.
What is Green Man Gaming's refund policy?
Digital games aren't as simple to return as physical games, but Green Man Gaming does support refunds in certain circumstances. As long as you haven't received or revealed your purchased product code, and you request a refund within 7 days of purchase, Green Man Gaming will consider the request if you can provide a reason the retailer deems reasonable. Changing your mind or discovering your computer doesn't meet a game's minimum specifications do not qualify as reasonable reasons.
