A simple breakdown of G2A and why you should use it

ps4fans g2a shop

First off, let me start by saying that I am new to G2A although it’s been around for quite some time now.  Before I decided to write this post, I did some research on the website, and other websites similar to it.  I have to say, the site is legit. You can buy games, and software activation codes for dirt cheap.  You can also sell your old games if you get tired of them.

It’s really a very simple website to use.  You go to the homepage G2A.com and can either use the search console, or one of the drop down menus to filter by console. From there, you can find basically any game you’re looking for on steam, xbox, playstation network, battle.net, and more.

The prices are crazy cheap.  Why? No, it’s not a scam.  G2A is a marketplace vendor, and not a direct distributor.   On top of that, they also buy registration codes in bulk and as a result, are able to sell them for super cheap and make a profit.  Just like any other big retailer like Walmart, Target, or even your local grocery store, G2A is no different in that regard.

To add further incentive to buying crazy cheap deals on g2a.com, you can purchase a security measure called G2A Shield for only $1.  With this shield equipped, you are guaranteed that your product will work 100%.  The G2A Shield is kind of a no brainer if you think about it.  The game you are buying is stupid cheap to begin with, so adding $1 to ensure a 100% successful activation rate is an easy choice.

But how does G2A Shield work? Again, it’s quite simple.  If you buy an activation code and the seller happens to sell you a fraudulent code, G2A Shield will ensure that you get a new code that works, and the seller is billed for the product.  That way, the website itself doesn’t actually pay for it.  There are so many items in stock usually that if you get one bad code, it’s really easy to obtain another one that works.  In fact, G2A boasts that if you are on the receiving end of a bad transaction, your issue will be resolved within 5 minutes.  They also claim to have a 100% success rate, and even that if you find a game cheaper elsewhere, they will price match and refund you the difference.

We don’t normally promote websites, but G2A really is your best friend if you are a gamer on a budget.  We had also been reading some blogs recently which mentioned that G2A.com is a scam because they sell stolen products.  Those bloggers are either misinformed, or are just trying to get traffic to their website.

And yes, PS4fans is an affiliate partner with that.  It’s actually a really great affiliate program and I’d recommend you sign up if you’re interesting in earning some extra money.  If you’re not sure what an affiliate program is, you can read more about it on their G2A goldmine section of their site.  Essentially, if you become an affiliate and someone else signs up on G2A using a “reflink” that you provided from your website, you will get a commission of any purchase they make after signing up, or in the future of ALL purchase.  They don’t pay a crazy high percentage, but they do offer a tier system.  What this means is that if for example you signed up under my affiliate reflink


And you decided to make a G2A goldmine account yourself, you would become a team member on the PS4fans team since you signed up through our reflink.  If you were then able to signup someone under your own reflink, PS4Fans would also receive credit for that as a level two team member.  Additionally, if THAT person were to sign someone else up under them, you would get credit as a level two member, and PS4Fans would get credit as a level three team member.  It goes three tiers deep and scales as 100%/60%/40% respectively.

As you can see, it is a fairly sophisticated affiliate platform that relies heavily on community involvement.  If you are an affiliate marketer, or just a gamer with a big online network, it’s not a bad idea trying it out.  You never know what could happen!
