I hope you’re not talking about me
You might want to check my last topic to get an idea on why some people do that.
Personally as a gift card reseller outside of GF, I have my reasons. I can’t complete my purchase right away because obviously I resell those so I can’t find out whether it works or not. Sure it may work at the time of purchase, but sometimes it doesn’t last long because you are a fraud (not talking about you, PeterPan) and the code will either get blocked because it was reported stolen/bought with a stolen credit card, or maybe you just can’t be trusted and you check the codes you sell after a while to see which one still works and then use it for yourself or try to resell it in some other way.
You see where im going? It’s really hard for us resellers to find a reputable seller/supplier for these things. Steam Pumpkin is now gone, so we’re all alone in the wild looking for a replacement.
I might fall under the wrong seller that is trying to get a couple of bucks out of me and runs away with the money, before I ever get a chance to sell my code and make sure that you are to be trusted.
However, this process of mine is just temporary. Once I make sure you are trustworthy and get comfortable enough with you, I can start completing my purchases right away and you’ll end up making good business from me.
That’s my reason and I know there are a lot of buyers out there that are just like me, buying for the purpose of reselling. However I can’t speak for people that are buying just once or twice for self use, that are just lazy or too careless to complete their order so you can get your money fast lol.
