Other Ways To Cancel Pending Transactions In Steam?
1. Use Steam Website:
Another solution to the pending transaction error is by using the Steam website to make the purchase in your account. Even if the payment system is the same between both platforms, at times there could be connectivity problems in the Steam client because of specific ports. Simply get yourself logged in to the Steam site and attempt to wrap up the troublesome transaction. If it is successful, you can easily make use of the item you bought on the Steam client on any computer.
2. Using A Different Payment Method Payment:
Payment on Steam could also be a problem when payment method is not either supported by the platform, or there is some technical error in processing the transaction itself. To rectify this issue, simply use an alternative payment method. For instance, you can make use of your debit or credit card directly with Steam, rather than using 3rd-party payment services such as PayPal e.t.c.
You are done.
