我來自台灣,我本來想送龍珠,但我不知道交易會有10%的必直限制。要是我購買贈送後,各位極大可能無法成功接收,故將贈禮取消,十分抱歉辜負大家。我會在搞懂機制後再贈送別的禮物。十分抱歉

I am from Taiwan, I originally wanted to give away Dragon Balls, but I didn't know there would be a 10% must-straight limit on trades. If I buy the gift, you may not be able to receive it successfully because of the region limit, so the gift will be canceled, and I am very sorry to disappoint everyone. I will give other gifts after I understand the mechanics. I am so sorry

Thank you, I was frightened after reading your message and quickly deleted the gift. It seems that the problem of regional restrictions will cause me a lot of trouble, and I will study it carefully before giving it away.

Hey, no need to apologize. These things happen. Accidents occur. Don't stress over it.

Don't worry friend
It's just a bug with the region. This often happens so don't worry about it.

So as i know, if I want to give DRAGON BALL XENOVERSE 2 (need to add friends + I buy and give), it can only be given to players in these limited areas, and only they can receive it.
And this region problem includes all other games, I can't receive gifts beyond these regions, can't I send them in the same way?
Can I still play SG ;A;

If you want to give games directly through Steam system, purchases made in Taiwan can only be added to library if receivers are in Hong Kong or Taiwan. Always remember the 10% different.

If you want to give games to worldwide users, I suggest you use gg.deals to buy keys.

People are giving worldwide keys here so you can always enter every giveaway that you like.

I know Taiwan is often region-restricted to itself or specific Asian region sets, but from what you're saying is that actually always the case?

Thanks for the info. That does at least make it a lot easier for explaining gifting procedures to those in Taiwan.. :S

You and your winners can always receive games from a stronger currency, but if the currency's value is 10% or more, you can't gift to it. In other words, it's fine if it's 10% lower value than the gifter's own currency, it just can't be 10% higher than the gifter's currency. This is to avoid exploitation by purchasing games in poorer countries to resell to richer consumers. There ARE region restrictions and locks on various games that you'll slowly learn about moving forward, but those are unrelated to the 10% rule.

If you don't want to spend too much time figuring out where you can gift to, you can always just set your giveaway to only be available to regions with your own currency (ie, New Taiwan dollar?). It'll block out a lot of entrants from your giveaway, but it'll be a lot easier than figuring out the full scope of which regions need to be blocked off or included.

Edit: Well, based on what tungmapu said, literally all you need to know about gifting is "Taiwan or Hong Kong only", though even there you'd want to confirm the Hong Kong part for each game, as I recall seeing several games that were restricted as Taiwan-only. :/

Also, if at any point you need to, you can edit your main thread post here by clicking the green "Open" in the top right.

Taiwan is not China, they are 2 different countries.

Well, I'm not sure of the context, but I've no argument on that, no matter how angry China'll get at you if you say that.

Chinese users have their own 蒸汽平台 so I don't worry much.

Steam Store regional pricing policy example, select your currency
cannot send where red >= +10% (bottom of page), can send everywhere above including blue
can receive from everywhere below <= -10% (green) including red

those without prices are region blocked, with an exclusive Store listed version or government ban
if you are blocked, click on "packages" in the LHS panel to hunt for your region's subapp
on creation page, instead of game name, can use appid from Store page address to find exact game in select list
to create a SG regioned giveaway, it's backwards, countries not selected cannot enter

unlike gg.deals, only legit keys (supplied directly from the devs/publishers) are listed on ITAD example
retailers are often misinformed, every Bundle in Deals lists any steamDB verified regioning
some regioned keys can be activated elsewhere, albeit cannot play for 90 days, and only revealed so by testing
only a dev or publisher can make keys and attach arbitrary regions, Steam only polices how many keys

if cannot activate a gift, take a screenshot of Steam advising why and upload it to an image host
post it ![](image link) in the giveaway to alert gifter, so they can get a free replacement key from thier legit supplier
if gifter politely requests to delete, it's polite to agree, you might be that gifter some day, even HB gets bad keys.
support only accepts reroll/delete tickets from the gifter and require proof of winner's consent or attempts to contact

thx for your detailed explanation, I think it would be easier now that I want to give gifts in the same area.

Currently looking for key shop and global keys, but it seems that there are still many problems in restricted areas (mostly from Japan...so I have to give up games in restricted areas such as Dragon Ball for the time being)
Now considering whether there will be good deals for Wingamestore, Instant Gaming, indiegala, and Fanatical (but the regional restrictions still make me want to explode in place

At the moment it seems the most conservative option for sending a global giveaway is to buy the humble bundle of Cities: Skylines. The main game key seems to have no regional restrictions, and I think there are more information about the humble bundle that can be trusted.

I seriously want to be a long-term SG user (before I run out of money :P

still, by google trans

I saw some records of being stolen using the HB gifts link on the internet ˙ m˙

HB tracks giftlinks, deems gifting is the same as trading, bans for suspicion of trading, if not an account lock out

No, he means that Humble Bundle can track the gift links, can ban your account and IP address so you can't buy anymore.
Circumvent that situation by revealing the key, don't use gift links.
