This video shows how to change the currency and country of your steam account. This is needed if you have moved to a different country or if you plan on using a different currency for your purchases. Please note that changing to a country which you don't have a bank account will render you unable of making any purchases. #steam #steamchangecountry #steamchangecurrency **************************************************************** * Octopus Technology Website: http://theoctopustechnology.com * Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/octopustechnologyyoutube * Twitter: https://twitter.com/OktopusTech * Google Plus: https://plus.google.com/+AndreasChristodoulou1989/posts * Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/andrikkos89 * LinkedIn: https://cy.linkedin.com/in/andreas-christodoulou-09b7b167 ******* Andreas Christodoulou is the creator and editor of Octopus Technology YouTube channel and theoctopustechnology.com website.

I need help, I changed my steam currency to Brazil from India 15 days ago. Now I want to change it to Argentina. Will I get banned if I buy from Argentina and play in India? I haven't bought anything from Brazil though.
Ankith Kandala (2 months ago)
Anodam You only have to use VPN for changing currency. Once it's changed, you don't need VPN to buy games.
Ankith Kandala (3 months ago)
Morphine Beats I didn't change to Argentina again, but I am still in Brazil and bought few games. No ban till now. Like they said, it doesn't matter if you do once.

Unknowingly I came across a site called Codenimi, where I received genuine coupons. If you also want 100% accurate coupons then type in google as "Codenimi free". You'll get handful of coupons there.

Be careful with using VPN, it might result in your account getting permabanned.
LakituLP (11 months ago)
How can i do it without giving away my Adress, Town etc etc.? Due to a mistake my country was changed and I want my own country back, but I am not willing to do the part with the payment method. I´m using Paysafe anyway, so the payment method is worthless for me
majestic bob (11 months ago)
I want my steam to be set to usd but i dont live in the us. Can i change that??
Amourito Amourito (11 months ago)
You wanna change it because now the currency depends on the country you live in right? If it is the case, I am also too looking for that
Ryder Wilson (11 months ago)
this is so fucking stupid now Steam added NIS currency to steam so instead of paying in Dollars I pay in Israeli shekels, I pay $8 more on games that are $60 so now i need to pay more!?!? fuck that, I prefer paying in US currency bro..

זה זין כי קניתי משחק וזה החזיר לי הכל לILS
MrBenjaminIL (10 months ago)
תכלס הם כבר שמו מכירים לג'י טי איי, אבל הם העלו את המכיר לישראלים ב22%
Nawy (10 months ago)
אחי לך בקלות תשנה אני שיניתי גם הבעיה היא אם תרצה לקנות משחק אכלת אותה
MrBenjaminIL (11 months ago)
But the good thing in it, I think is that now steam wallet codes will be purchasable in Israel as well תכלס אולי היתרות בזה, זה שסטים יתחילו לשווק גם בישראל קודים של כסף
MrBenjaminIL (11 months ago)
Same חרא של דבר, זה גם חוסם משחקים מסויימים כמו ג'י-טי-איי-ווי ועוד כמה It is really stupid because it blocks some games like GTA V

When you buy a Steam card in Australia its in Australian Dollars. So you pay $20 Australians dollars which is ~$15 in American Dollars

MrMathiasdv (10 months ago)
Steam doesnt have DKK. It only has like 8 different currencies. So it automatically selects euro because its the closest :( It really sucks, because I'd rather use dollars.
