Ordering off Steam from abroad(Ukraine).

Hey, I'm currently living in Ukraine right now, but I would still like to order some games off Steam. The thing is, I only have a Canadian credit card. Since I'm located in Ukraine, and have a Ukrainian IP, will this cause a problem and trip some kind of fraud protection?

there won't be any fraud protection tripped, but you won't be able to make purchases. you will get some error. next time before leaving top up your steam wallet.

Why don't you ask for a ukraine friend to make a virtual mastercard and then you pay him the price?

Using credit card from another country won't work

Using credit card from another country is possible, but he will have to contact Steam support to enable that option for his account (I did same less than 2 months ago when I went to china).

Enter the Steam store using ?cc=[your country code], in your case http://store.steampowered.com?cc=ca

If you are using a credit card with an address in Canada you should be able to purchase without problems.

You need to contact Support first, otherwise purchase won't go through.
