Steam games on Nuuvem

Thread Details

A couple of times last year I saw Steam game deals posted from Nuuvem, so I registered an account there. I got some great deals on Lego games for the kids, plus a few for me. I think the average discount was about 2/3 off.

Occasionally, I would try to buy a game only to be told that it was not available in my region. I just installed a VPN which told it I was in Brazil, and no problems.

This week, though, I noticed that I can no longer check out at all. Everything goes smoothly until I log into Paypal. Right at the point where the purchase looks like it is going to go through, a red bar pops up at the top and tells me that the game is not available in my area. This even happens when I try to pay with an existing Paypal balance, and no credit card is involved.

Has Nuuvem been forced to install something that double checks where the Paypal payment is coming from? That would seem to be the case.

I have purchased about a dozen games there on Nuuvem, and was counting on it for inexpensive Christmas gifts for my kids. Other than moving down there to Brazil, opening up a bank account and setting up a Paypal account linked to it, can any of you think of a workaround? I'm annoyed to be locked out of buying games where I've been doing it for a year just because of a Paypal check.

Either Nuuvem is actually checking the address associated with your paypal account or you have recently confirmed your address info on Paypal and it is sending differently.

You could try creating a new email, start up a new paypal and put a different address in there. Just make sure you only use it for digital transactions. Would be annoying to accidently ship something to Brazil.
