Steam Game Sell

Selling games on Steam is of course complicated, because Valve simply doesn’t want you to do it. However, you can sell a Steam game without getting in trouble with Valve if the game is in your inventory. You can also sell your Steam library by selling your account, but doing so may result in account banning.

When you buy a Steam game, you can send it as a gift, add it to Steam inventory or library. Adding the game to your library allows you to play it. Adding it to your inventory gives you the game key for later use. The games also can be sent as gifts or traded through the Steam trading system. Here’s how to get a game out of your Steam inventory so that you can sell it.
