For user that refilled money more than 30 days but still can't use market

  • The most cause of this problem that we had found is it doesn't 30 days after user refilled money yet because Valve count 24 hours as 1 day so if you refilled your money at 5 P.M., market will available for you at the next 30 days at 5 P.M.
  • The next cause is your computer has virus or Cleaner program that delete Steam cache file from the system. It will make Steam confuse about when you logged in on this computer for the first time and make you unautorized to use Steam market
  • If you're sure that causes above are not your, please contact Steam support and they will fix your problem.
