ClickandBuy announced an agreement with Valve to offer the ClickandBuy e-payment method for purchases via Steam (, a pioneering broadband platform for games and digital content. ClickandBuy's wide range of supported payment methods-including direct debit, ELV, online bank transfers, telephone billing, and credit cards-makes it easier than ever for millions of Steam customers to purchase and download a broad selection of game titles from dozens of leading publishers and independent developers.

The new billing solution is available to Steam customers across North America and the majority of European countries. With over 150 games in a broad selection of genres and dozens of other PC applications and game movies and demos available, Steam has become a leading destination for more than 13 million gamers.

Guenter Meessen, Gaming Specialist, ClickandBuy, stated: "To be chosen by this leading digital distribution provider for PC games makes us proud. The decision of an international (US-based) market leader underlines our strength, to capture the European market by more than 40 integrated payment methods. We are very satisfied to serve Steam's global audience with the ClickandBuy solution."

"We're better serving our customers' needs by adding ClickandBuy as a payment option for purchases on Steam," says Jason Holtman, director of business development at Valve. "ClickandBuy provides a secure, convenient payment method for millions of Steam customers around the world."

Additionally, ClickandBuy is offering Steam customers a $5 (USD) credit toward a future ClickandBuy purchase-including Valve's top-rated new release, The Orange Box, featuring Half-Life 2: Episode 2, Portal, and Team Fortress 2; as well as Half-Life 2 and Half-Life 2: Episode One.
