    Hey guys, I am planning to open online shop to sell cd keys for games and gold currencies of games.

    and maybe you could guys advice me what is the best way to receive payments for virtual goods? To avoid fraud chargeback and disputes and all those scammers...

    thanks :)

    Go for Authorize.net

    Too many disputes on Paypal or 2CO = Instant Account BAN.

    For selling CD keys and Gold stuff you need high risk merchant.

    If I'll sell cd keys using paypal for example, and then I'll send the keys to the customers email alongside with a physical "thank you for purchasing" letter, will it cover me for 100%?

    Nothing will cover you 100% from a chargeback. The middlemen don't want to lose money so they will take it out of your account. You need to accept a non-reversible payment such as Bitcoin

    I have heard around that a lot of people have had problems selling virtual goods with paypal, but for me I have never had a problem so you should consider trying paypal.
