    So I was wondering, what sites are there selling game keys like DHGate sells antivirus keys?

    I once knew some polish site selling keys very cheap, but I forgot its name...

    The reason I'm looking for some good sites selling CD Keys (G2A, Kinguin = not what I'm looking for) is because I'm looking to get back into selling CD Keys. Worked out quite well in the past, but after people started copying what I was doing my margins dropped drastically. I'd be very happy if someone could help me get back in the game!

    What do you mean? I know they exist, I just can't seem to find them... :)

    The polish site sold keys so much cheaper compared to G2A, all you had to do was translate (which a lot of people did not bother doing). Made a good profit of people not wanting to be bothered by shady sites.

    Most of these keys are fake. Don't waste time on this. And remember, software and games are sold by licenses. Meaning only authorized reseller are allowed to sell. Your payment processor would shut down your business eventually.

    Really? It seemed like a genuine marketplace (guess they would go for that obviously, but I still know there are some legit ones out there). Well, I have had no problems with it so far, but I guess you can say it's not a completely whitehat method anyway.

    I could swear I've seen PC game keys sold like OP describes before. I'm not so sure he is off base. eBay is/was full of key sellers.

    Yes but eventually either ebay or paypal will ask for proof of license by owner to sell. So you have an issue with payment processor. Like I mention above, game key, software key are licenses sold. They are not a product. So you cannot resell without principle approval legally. When you buy a software or game, you do not own the right to resell unless it is a physical disc.

    I was selling on local sites (not international). Never had any problems with staff other than re-posting the advert too many times ;).

    And what you say makes perfect sense, but that's not what I'd like to discuss in this topic. I'm still looking for one or more of the sites I described in my first post :).
