What is a Steam Wallet?

    Last Updated on May 26, 2023

Your Steam Wallet is your best friend when it comes to buying anything in the app. Steam is one of the largest digital distribution platforms in terms of the PC gaming sector. If you are a PC gamer, there is a high probability you have Steam downloaded on your computer.

Essentially, the Wallet is a digital bank. It allows users to add funds to their Steam Account, which in turn, can be used to purchase games available on Steam. You can also use Codes to pre-purchase a select number of funds to add to your account.

Since it’s a digital bank, you might ask how to add more funds. There are multiple ways to top-up or add money. You can also enter your card information on the Steam App, or add funds directly to it.

However, it is a one-way transaction. It means that you can only add funds to it, but you cannot transfer the funds to your wallet elsewhere. Please take note of that before placing a little too many of your funds in the wallet.
