Steam to Get Support for 11 More Currencies in Coming Weeks
Valve Corporation has been expanding the wings of Steam to new territories gradually over the years.
It already supports multiple regions and currencies for them and now they are adding 11 more local currencies to the list.
In fact, out of those eleven local currencies, five have already been added last night. These are Ringgits for Malaysia, Peso for Philippines, Singaporean Dollars for Singapore, Rupiah for Indonesia and Thai Baht for Thailand.
Last month they had added payment options for Japanese Yen too.
Moving on, in the next couple of weeks, you will be able to see new payment currency options for at least five more regions including Canadian Dollar, Mexican Peso for Mexico, Lira for Turkey and finally Krone for Norway.
This changes a lot about the available payment options for the Steam users as previously only five types of currencies were accepted on the website being US Dollars, British Pounds, Rubles for Russia, Real for Brazil and lastly Euros – and I hope I have greatly increased your general knowledge as far as international currencies are concerned.
Looking at it on the world map, you will see that Valve Corporation is paying a lot of attention to their expansion in the South East Asian region.
All five of the countries that received currency support today belong to that specific region. This is, of course, a good thing for both the locals and the company as they will create a prominent presence in the region now.
How many of you belong to any of the new regions in question and do you think you will be buying more from Steam now that you can pay in your local currencies?
