What Are CDkeys and How Do They Work?

You may have heard about CDkeys when shopping for video games and subscriptions online. But what exactly are CDkeys, and how do they work? Here's a breakdown of everything you need to know about these digital codes.

What Are CDkeys?

CDkeys are discount digital codes that can be redeemed for video game content, subscriptions, and other services. For example, you can purchase a CDkey for PlayStation Plus membership, Xbox Live Gold, Nintendo Switch Online, Spotify subscriptions, and more.

CDkeys provide an alternative method to pay for these services compared to traditional payment methods. Instead of entering your credit card details to subscribe directly, you can buy a prepaid code from a CDkey retailer and redeem it on the respective platform.

Some of the most popular types of CDkeys include:

  • PlayStation Network CDkeys - Provide access to PS Plus membership unlocks, games, DLCs, avatars, themes, and other PSN content. You can find CDkeys PS Plus in our store.
  • Xbox Live and Game Pass CDkeys - Grant access to Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscriptions. You can also find CDkeys Xbox Live and CDKeys Xbox Game Pass within the store.
  • Nintendo CDkeys - Allow you to add funds/credit to your Nintendo account to purchase Switch games and subscriptions. Browse through our CDkeys Nintendo Switch and find the perfect ones to match your choice.

In summary, CDkeys take digital goods and services that normally require credit card payments and transform them into discount prepaid codes.

Why Buy CDkeys?

There are several compelling reasons why CDkeys have become so popular among deal-seeking gamers:

  • 1.Cheaper Than Retail Price
  • The main attraction of CDkey sites is the heavily discounted prices compared to MSRP costs. For example, a 12-month PlayStation Plus membership retails at $59.99 on PSN. But you can often find PS Plus CDkeys selling for only $30 - $40 online. This is applicable for CDKeys GamePass Ultimate as well.
  • 2.No Need for Credit Cards
  • CDkey transactions only require a valid code - no credit card details needed. This is more convenient if you don't have a credit card. It also gives parents an easy way to gift gaming subscriptions to children.
  • 3.Instant Worldwide Delivery
  • Another big plus is the instant delivery of codes. As soon as the CDkey we process your order, you receive the prepaid code that can be redeemed worldwide. No shipping fees or customs duties to deal with.
  • 4.Resell or Gift Codes
  • We allow you to resell or gift your spare codes. For example, you might have a 12-month PlayStation Plus CDkey but only need 3 months. You can then resell the remaining 9 months to someone else.
