Scam. I bought ms Office but the key had already been used, they sent me a new key & it was also used. They are flat out refusing to give me a refund. Terrible! Do not use GAMIVO.com

They are scammers. Professing to want to protect you and ask for copies of your ID! Even though they've been paid by paypal already!

Complete scam, stay away. They hide subscription fees in everything you are buying.

Legit company with really unfair business practices. Watch out for their infamous SMART subscription, which even after your unselection, they will pre-select for you again on every following checkout page.

It's a legitimate company that sells grey-market keys with no customer protection. Beware, they will not side with you or refund you if a key you buy is duplicate or already redeemed.

We'll see when I get my money back. They pulled the ID crap with me too and still denied my sale. I'll dispute via my bank if they don't refund quickly.

Complete scam! Do not use, still awaiting refund from miss sold key! Was told one week and still waiting a month later. Countless emails and the problem is still not resolved. I hope you all can read this before doing any business with these scam artists based in a penthouse in Malta!

Gamivo, as a whole, may as well be a scam company. Some keys are legitimate, but they will not help you when you get a bad key.

Scam. I actually purchased MS volume licenses from them. They were all used up before I could even get a hold of them.

I tried to make a PayPal claim, but it didn't end in my favour, and all "customer services" wants to do is provide MORE used replacement keys and have you waste your time proving they are used.

WARNING GAMIVO IS A SCAM SITE! One of GAMIVO's current scams concerns their "Smart" subscription, a useless un asked for subscription that automatically kicks in and bills your credit card monthly once you've gone through checkout for any purchase. BUYER BEWARE!

They will steal your money by subscribing you to a useless monthly service and they won't give you your money back.

I got scammed by them...

Here is the story:

"So i ordered 3x XBOX Live Gold Codes for 125€. I paid with paypal. Gamivo then forced me to send a picture of my drivers licence or ID card and a handwritten letter with "gamivo" on it. I was confused... i allready paid for these codes and they still wanted to see my ID card? So i decided to send in a picture of my ID card and the handwritten letter... after a few minutes i got another mail from gamivo. This time they wanted to get a picture of my credit card and another handwritten letter. This time i denied their request. Why do they want to see my credit card digits? As i said, i already paid with paypal and my credit card doesnt play a role in this transaction.

To this day, i did not receive my codes and gamivo doesnt answer my request for a refund.

I got scammed..."

Im in contact with paypal now... trying to get my money back.

It's legit! I think it comes down to what vendors you use.

It is but they aren't a very good one. Better off going to G2A.

I would say legit from the experiences I've had with the site. I've bought around a dozen games on the site with no issue.

It is a legit service with quick delivery and many pay optons. Used it and it works
