ZiiP GameStore

Easy and fast online purchase, download code arrived 1hr 20min after placing order

Little apprehensive after placing my order when nothing came with the download code after an hour, as a fair few had said it was only a 5-10 minute wait, but came 1hr 20 mins from receipt confirmation of order and payment: would recommend but for a game like crysis 3 with a nearly 15Gb download be prepared for a long wait unless you have a fast broadband speed - that shouldn't detract from using Ziip though their service was pretty informative and quick, just bare it in mind!

One thing, and Ive seen earlier comments, Ziip please dont send confirmation of a new registered user's account and show the password in the email confirmation.

Thank you Keith. :)

We try to get keys out as fast as we can - but the time of dispatch does vary on the time of day I'm afraid. I agree with you regarding the 15GBs of Crysis 3 though - it's pretty huge... but worth it imho. Hopefully, as digital downloads become more the norm, the leading ISPs will increase the bandwidth accordingly.

With regard the passwords, we were meant to update our new account signup a month ago - I've now changed it. Sorry we didn't get it done sooner.

New sign-ups now get shown ************ instead of their password in their welcome email. For reference, all passwords are stored in an encrypted format on the database, never as cleartext.
