# 1 Zen Through Steam
03-13-2014, 03:25 AM
Hello, yesterday, I got a steam gift card that I wanted to use on zen for STO like I have in the past. However, when I went to the buy zen button in game, it sent me straight to the website to buy zen. Is there any way to buy zen through steam anymore?

Yes, there is. You have to open the game, open the Z-Store, and there should be an option to buy Zen through your Steam Wallet.

-Edit- Sorry, I misunderstood. It gives me that option. To buy Zen in-game through your Steam Wallet, make sure you opened the game using Steam, not Arc or just opeing the stand-alone client

Yeah, I did. It is working for me now, for some reason it wasn't last night. Maybe steam was down and it defaulted to going through PWE's website.

I think Steam had issues last night. I couldn't login to Steam at all, kept telling me I had no Internet connection, etc (I had). I couldn't even get on the Steam forums.

Now I'm having the same problem. I was able to buy Zen with my Steam Wallet a couple weeks ago, but now clicking the Buy Zen button just sends me to a Perfect World website. Steam appears to be working fine, though. Is this something that should fix itself eventually?

EDIT: Never mind, I was able to fix it by bringing up the Steam overlay once.
