    I bought funds or steam wallet funds before using my paypal account and I bought some items in the steam "market" 2 days ago.

    Now, Im trying to buy a steam "gift" card because I don't want to put money in my card basically.


    Does anyone know if using a Steam gift card to add funds to my wallet will also lock me out of the market for 7 days? also is it considered as a new payment method?

    I just need some clarification

    Thanks :)

    I think you have the steam prepay cards (gift cards) mixed up with regular steam wallet credit that is loaded onto your account from within the steam client.

    Activating a steam prepay card (gift card) should not affect your ability to trade or use the market any differently then your steam account is able to do now (no additional cool-down period) It activates similar to a CD key for a game. http://store.steampowered.com/account/redeemwalletcode/
