How to buy games from STEAM using CIMB Debit Card
Things you need to know before purchasing games from STEAM.
Do not make any top-up or purchase at 12am-7am.
This is because CIMB doesn’t detect your top-up at this hour and it will take them about 24hours to update your balance if you top-up/purchase during this hour . Trust me, I already went through it and ended with I had to spent more than I should to buy the stuff I want.
Check the current USD-MYR rates at Google.
Always add another RM3 more than current rate. Example current rate is RM3.02 per 1 USD. If total item is about RM50 then you need to add another RM3. Because sometimes bank charges differently.
Now onto How to buy games from STEAM using Cimb Debit Card
- Add into cart and choose purchase for myself or purchase as gift if you’re buying for someone else.
- Fill in the form like stated in your card. Address and name must be same like when you register your debit card. Payment method is Mastercard. You can choose to save payment information or not. For safety purpose I choose not to .
- Click on continue and it will take you into review window , click submit and if the amount in your card is enough the payment will be successful. If the amount you top-up is not enough, it will say that payment is rejected. All you need to do is top-up some more and submit again.
STEAM will send an e-mail containing link and key for the game you bought. If you put your friend e-mail, once paid an e-mail will be sent to your friend . And even if you choose your own e-mail, that e-mail then you can send to your friend/family members and they can activate it anywhere. The game you purchase as gift is not linked to the e-mail address.
