Steam Now Accepting the Australian Dollar

Written by Jordan Lucero on November 23rd, 2018.

Steam started to accept the Australian Dollar earlier this week, which comes as a relief to many Australian gamers. Australian Steam users should see their USD Steam Wallet balance convert to AUD automatically, and will no longer be able to make purchases in USD. Steam requires all publishers to set their game prices in AUD before they can be relisted on the Australian store. Some publishers are behind on doing this, so some games, including Quantum Break, are not available for purchase until the respective publishers update their prices. All games that users have already purchased are right where they were.

Some games are costing more in AUD than they would when converted directly from USD. The price you’ll pay varies from each game’s respective publisher. You’ll find some games are priced fair, but most others are almost 30 dollars more.

You can visit Steam’s official AUD FAQ, here. What do you think of this change? Does this affect you? Let us know in the comments below.
