Steam adds option for users to cancel pre-orders

Posted on January 27, 2014 AT 05:10am

Previously, in order to cancel a pre-order on Steam you had to contact Valve, but now an option has been added to the Library to simplify the whole process.

After pre-ordering an item on Steam, an option will appear next to the game in your Library that says “Refund an item.” Simply click this option to cancel your pre-order and get your money back.

It’s worth noting that the money will be returned to your Steam Wallet and not your bank account.
