  1. BUYER BEWARE !!
    These guys sold me a Shadowlands code, 2 days later the code got deactivated. Contacted support to find out these guys sold me a code that was purchased using a stolen credit card. Then when I tried to get a refund they tell me i have to wait for the vendor to “investigate” so now i won’t have Shadowlands when it drops… Super Mad.
    BUYER BEWARE !!!

  2. Yes, avoid this company. You will see a pattern to the bad reviews: their outrageous Smart Subscription “service”. They use this to extract small payments from people until you notice and cancel. They also lie about the cost – my subcription was supposed to be charged at £1.82 according to my account but they charge £2.29 and £2.24. The sneering customer service agent said this related to a “payment fee” but couldn’t explain why it varied. Avoid this provider.

    a link to my Trustpilot verified review – https://www.trustpilot.com/review/gamivo.com#:~:text=A%20great%20gaming%20platform,very%20large%20library%20to%20search.

  3. Do not buy at Gamivo, it’s a fraudulent company that uses deceptive methods to charge services you never asked for. They add them as checkboxes that are checked by default, then start to automatically steal money from your credit card every month.They use “terms” you apparently accepted, but to be honest, you are not going to read them right?! Do not buy there, you will get scammed.
