Gaming Credits Digital Style

Status: Tell Us More
by Valued Contributor on ‎04-18-2014 08:44 AM

Now hear me out before you shoot it down. There are a vast amount of games on steam/ubisoft that are not available for digital download on BB website. Instead of listing EVERY single game. Why not make a "credits account" It may not be instant for obvious reasons but what pretty much happens is this


-gaming credits at BB is purchased (these are like your own version of Steam Wallet points or whatever you want to call it ) 

-customer can then send in a request to use part of their funds to purchase a  steam key/whatever for that particular game

-BB would then purchase that game. 


Now before people start saying there is no profit here let me explain


-game credits can cost more money wise than the actual $1 to 100 credits or however it would be listed. I.e. it could be (and I am throwing this out for example ) $1.40 to 100 points ( which is $1 on steam for example ) Okay cool, so you just made 40% profit ( 40 cent in this aase ) 

-no GCU can be used on this, but vouchers that are accepted on steam have to be accepted I assume.


Other ideas:

-why limit yourself to Steam/Ubisoft? Allow a person to buy credits to any major gaming company ( Bethseda, Blizard, etc


There could even be different tiers of this program such as 


-After the first year your credit limit increases ( I would assume to prvent fraud etc you would limit how many can be bought in a time frame/amount spent )
