In most cases our codes are valid in the US only.
This is because large companies tend to run subsidiaries in every country. These act as separate legal and tax entities - therefore they cannot issue international gift codes.
Additionally, many governments also impose over-regulation to make the transfer of gift codes difficult.
The exception to this is Steam, who currently do allow currency conversion.
How do you handle claims from other countries?
If we detect you are in a country other than the US we won't allow you to claim codes that you probably couldn't use. That wouldn't be fair, as you would be landed with a code that wouldn't work.
Instead we offer direct payment with PayPal.
Anyone over the age of 18 can open a PayPal account and they cover a most countries internationally.
If you don't have an account yet you should definitely think about registering one. Most regular web users that transact online have a PayPal account, since it's much safer than using a credit card.
What if I can't use PayPal either?
If you can't use PayPal then we suggest Bitcoin, which anyone in the world can use!
