Steam now accepting local currency in Mexico and Turkey

Partnering with digital payment system UOL BoaCompra

Gamers in Mexico and Turkey can now use local currency for their Steam purchases thanks to a partnership between Valve and Brazilian digital payments company UOL BoaCompra.

"Based on our successful track record with Brazil, UOL BoaCompra was the natural choice for opening up local currencies and payments in Mexico and Turkey," said Mark Richardson, CFO of Valve.

The two companies first joined forces in 2012 and this latest move is part of Valve's promise to add a dozen new currencies to the service this year.

"We're excited to extend our strong relationship with Valve to Mexico and Turkey, and allow these players the ability to make Steam purchases using the local payment methods they trust most," added UOL's Marcelo Epstein.

"As we've seen in the past with our cooperation in Brazil, leveraging BoaCompra's local payment system will enable Steam to bring their product to more users in Mexico and Turkey."
