A Steam card is not so distinct from other brands of gift cards you have learned about before. Therefore, a Steam card is a gift card that can only be redeemed for some credit on the Steam platform, this credit can then be used to purchase games and other downloadable content available on Steam.
Steam cards are of the physical and E-codes type. The difference between physical and digital cards (E-codes) is that physical Steam gift cards are delivered in denominations of $20, $30, $50, and $100 whereas digital cards are delivered in denominations of $5, $10, $25, $50, and $100.
How Steam Wallet Works
Your balance on Steam is stored in what is known as your Steam wallet. Funds can be deposited into this wallet using all major payment methods including credit cards, debit cards and PayPal. A full list of payment methods is available on the Steam website.
Alternatively, people can gift you what are known as Steam wallet codes—cards or receipts which can be purchased online or in store from a few major retailers. These codes can be entered into your account and then used to buy games, software, or any other items that catch your eye. The official channels for purchasing Steam-related goods are the Steam store and the Steam community market.
What Can Steam Wallet Card Be Used For?
The first thing to know is that your Steam Wallet card is not a regular credit card. It is a gift card, just like a normal one. You can load it with a certain amount and then use it on any purchase. The card can be redeemed for games, downloadable content, and in-game items. You cannot use it for phone calls. You can exchange it with friends and family. Be wary of people who ask you to exchange it. They are likely scammers.
The first thing you should know is that the Steam Wallet card is not a real credit card. It is not a debit card, so you can’t use it to make purchases on the website. Instead, you can use it for in-game purchases. You can also use it for a variety of other purposes. You can use it to buy in-game items or to make purchases in the Steam store. You can choose a specific game or a specific payment method and then load the money into your Wallet.
