Green Man Gaming launches local Latin America website

Green Man Gaming launches local Latin America website

Digital retailer Green Man Gaming has launched a localised storefront for Latin America.

Said website will be available in both Spanish and Portuguese, and supports local payment methods. Not only that; users will be able to pay using six newly-introduced currencies for the region. 

Those six are just half of the 12 newly-launched currencies on the platform. Green Man Gaming has added currencies that allow customers from Asia and the Middle East, as well as Latin America, to buy from its storefront.

These 12 new currencies include the Brazilian Real, Mexian Peso, Argentine Peso, Peruvian Sol, Chilean Peso, Colombian Peso, Chinese Yuan, South Korean Won, Turkish Lira, Malaysian Ringgit, Philippine Peso and the Indian Rupee.

The Latin America launch follows the roll-out of a localised German site.

“Following the successful launch of our first local website in Germany offering customers the ability to browse and purchase in their local language, currency and payment methods, the next step in our mission is to roll this out internationally and become the destination for global gamers,” Green Man Gaming boss and founder Paul Sulyok said.

“The introduction of 12 new local currencies on the Green Man Gaming store and two new websites in Latin America will play a significant role in helping us achieve this mission.”

Green Man Gaming’s international strategy was something we spoke to the retailer about in our interview with Sulyok earlier this year. We also asked the exec for his thoughts on the PC market and Brexit.
