Transferring Game Purchases from One Store to Another
Choice of Games and Hosted Games sell products in a few different ways:
App Store for iOS (iPhone/iPad)
-In the new “omnibus” app
-As separate apps
Android (separate apps only)
-Google Play Store
On our website at choiceofgames.com
Sometimes, you need to transfer purchases from one store to another store.
From separate iOS app to iOS omnibus: Download the latest version of the separate app(s) and the omnibus. Launch the separate app, then open the game in the omnibus. The omnibus may be able to automatically detect the separate app; if not, you’ll see a “Buy” button and a “restore purchases” link. Tap “restore purchases” and select the option to restore from the separate app.
If this transfer process fails, the game will offer you an email address to use to contact Choice of Games customer support. Be sure to click on that email address and to email us using the exact address we provide. The email address includes information we can use to diagnose issues.
From choiceofgames.com to iOS omnibus: If you purchase a game on our website, you can play it in our iOS omnibus app. Tap “restore purchases” next to the Buy button, and login with your email address and password.
From choiceofgames.com to separate mobile apps (iOS or Android): We have two kinds of separate apps: free apps, and pay-once-and-play (POAP) apps.
Transferring purchases from our website to a separate app only works for free apps. Inside a free app, you can tap “restore purchases” next to the Buy button, and login with your email address and password.
If you’d like to transfer a purchase from choiceofgames.com to a POAP app, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and include a copy of your purchase receipts.
From Steam to choiceofgames.com: Click the “restore purchases” link next to the Buy button. You’ll see an option to restore from Steam.
From other platforms to Steam: Unfortunately, we generally can’t transfer purchases from other platforms to Steam. Transfers from Steam to other places are possible, though. So if you’d like to have access to your games on Steam as well as other platforms, your best bet is to buy the games on Steam first, then write in to email@example.com with your receipts, and we can help you transfer them.
All Others, Contact Us: We don’t have an automatic way to do any of the following transfers, but we can help you with them if you write in to us.
