Are there issues with the pricing on certain items?
The price update script is set to run at a certain time each hour. If the price of a game/pack/dlc changes in between the time the script runs, it's possible for the price to be incorrect. If you see something wrong, don't hesitate to email me at support@steamcoin.com, or you can try and wait an hour or so and check back to see if the update script has fixed it (if I recall correctly, it's set to run at :55 after the hour).

So, are you guys also making the steam summer sale?

For the most part, the Summer Sale items should show up on the Sales tab (or say "On Sale!" in the regular list in red). Certain items from the Steam Store won't show up, such as special editions of games that only appear on the main game's page. There's not a whole lot I can do about this as it would require scraping all ~2000 game pages individually, which simply takes too long. Right now the compromise is basically that SteamCoin will pick up anything that appears in the Steam Store search results. If it doesn't show up there, it won't be on SteamCoin.

However, feel free to message me at support@steamcoin.com if you have a particular game/pack/dlc you want that isn't showing up in the store and I can set it to be added.

Hey all. Please bear with me for a bit, as it seems there is some technical issue with the price update script that's causing it to only list games on sale/not list all the games. I'm currently debugging it and I'll post an update as soon as it's fixed up.

Thanks for your patience!

Edit: Seems to be working correctly now.

I think I just filled your order. Also, it's a good idea to send a transaction fee if the sale for the game you're ordering is going to end soon (this goes for everyone).

Thanks for your order Smiley

Hey everyone. I have to stop processing orders temporarily due to the large delays in withdrawals from MtGox to Dwolla (which is currently the cheapest option for running SteamCoin, and allows me to keep my low rate). Be assured the downtime is only temporary, but unfortunately right now I just can't process any more orders until some of my money comes through from MtGox. I hope you all understand and will consider SteamCoin in the future. I'm hoping to have the site back up for a least a couple of days during the remainder of the Summer Sale.

Why not use bitpay? It seems companies have privileges when withdrawing from gox.

I did indeed look into BitPay and it seems like the best option for more quickly getting money back into my account from transactions. However, I would ultimately have to raise my fees in order to cover the extra cost of the fees they charge. It's a bit tricky as the BitPay fee would apply to the total amount of the order, rather than just the price of the games (so they'd be charging me fees on my fees, so I'd have to raise my fees to cover the extra fees they're charging on the fees I'm charging which would make the fees they're charging to go up... Yo dawg, I heard you like fees...).

my opinion as someone who spend ~5 btc on your site during summer sale:
if you can set this bitpay thing up quickly, do it, raise fees, put big banner on site "fees double, mtgox sux" and see what happens. even with higher fees I see still at least two reasons to use your site: 1: its in $, 7$ vs 13€ leaves room for fees. 2: games are not bought from a german account, so I avoid issues like " this low violence version is available in german only"

Thanks for your thoughts thatbluedude. I think I will try and get a BitPay account and at least implement it into the site and test it out. I don't really have an ETA on that as it's a bit of work getting it all set up, but I'll definitely be posting updates here as I make progress.

This is really cool. Using Bitpay is definitely a good option. I didn't even know a site like this exists. I buy Steam games occasionally so this is a service I want to use.

would be cool if this was back up lol right now would be a big time to make alot of coins with everyone wanting to buy steam games on sell.  Also have you tried the exchage that btcbuy uses they had the same problem and had to switch to a smaller exchange they use BitFloor.

Anyone who want buy Steam games - feel free to check my offer. The prices are much lower than retail, because games were bought on promotions. And if there's no game you want - just contact me, I can get all of them what you want. I recommend the bitmit, it's like ebay but bitcoin based. ;-)

I'd like to buy one game but it seems that the service is down. Is it permanent?
