ALL keys originaly come from the developers. ONLY them can create valid cd keys. Then those keys are sold to different actors; either to platforms like Steam, Origin, Uplay or to wholesellers and shops that you will find on our sites.
There are multiple factors for this. But it is mainly two things. Competitiveness between MULTIPLE shops and the facts that they sell DIGITAL products. Each store wants to sell their games, so they will lower their prices to be the shop that sell you the game.
But in the end the game creators earn the same no matter where the game is sold.
The prices from online stores are cheaper because the sellers don’t have to pay for their physical stores, post returns, local advertisings, etc. They also sometime take advantage of the globalization and buy games in countries where they are cheaper.
All trusted stores that appears on our comparison site are regularly tested anonymously by our team. You can also review stores yourself, or read reviews left by other users in the page of each store (store list). A store who has too many negative reviews would be suspended and we would open an investigation.
We take pride in the safety and quality of service on stores that we reference.
Some stores are not on our comparison list because they do not offer enough safety, or they have bad support, or even sometimes they have huge delay of delivery. This is unacceptable and these stores are simply not up to the standard quality we request for our users. Beware of some sites that make strange deals or fabulous prizes. It is not uncommon to see people complain of having been deceived after their purchases.
That is why we recommend you to use our price comparison tool.
We have taken steps to ensure that such problems do not happen to you, or in the worst case we can assist you to ensure that the problem is resolved as quickly as possible.We take into account your personal interests before those of the store.
All of our featured stores are carefully filtered and checked if they are able to provide customer satisfaction at the highest level. With this we also created a store review page for customers to write their feedback regarding their experience in using the store.
It is important to review all Stores to improve quality and customer service of each store. – Everyone is welcome to write a complete review of your experience with a store. – All stores are also regularly tested by our team anonymously, but with community reviews, we can learn a lot more about a store.
This is why we created these Game Store reviews pages for everyone to openly discuss and rate a store. The whole community of gamers can then decide where to buy. And we can take the decision to remove a store based on community reviews and bad ratings. We also test Stores that are not in our price comparison engine. For the sole purpose of bringing together information and reviews about all Stores in the world and allow users to check the safety of any specific store before buying on it.
We do this in the hope that users can be alerted if a store we haven’t yet authorized in our system can be trusted or not.
The criteria that we have established to be recognized as a recommended vendor were taken into account by those merchants who are committed to respect them. With these criteria the seller enjoys a position on our recommended sellers, a logo (Allkeyshop Certified) that tells our users that the seller enjoys a good reputation with our services but also our user community.
These stores do not meet our criteria to join the list of trusted stores. We regularly test stores to see the progress they make to become a trusted store.
Our criteria reflect the product delivery, product availability, customer support answers quality, customer support answers delay, company information, number of employees and finally a store must be an experienced seller with many orders processed already. New stores cannot be trusted in the beginning, this is why we created all the criteria, to protect us, the gamers. We invite every user who bought a game on any Store to review his purchase and to rate the store on these pages, to help other gamers in the world to make the right decision.
With this, we are confident that all of the featured shops on Allkeyshop are trustworthy and legit, they have the capacity to fulfill and deliver the product that their customers purchased. Providing a fast and convenient process in purchasing game keys.
