I wish I could help. You should contact Steam?

If theHunter starts without a login, your account is connected.

Maybe some useful info here: https://thehunter.fandom.com/wiki/Steam ... eam_Client

I can suggest two things to try, otherwise support can usually get this sorted.
1/ Make sure Steam overlay is NOT switched off for Classic, it uses the overlay to do the payment.
2/The location that you've set in Steam in your account must match the currency you're paying with. USA for USD, Europe for Euros and so on.
Steam throws errors in both those cases (among others) but those two seem to cause most of the issues.

Every time I get these kind of issues(ems related ones), the reason is the steam overlay
sometimes by starting the game from desktop icon the overlay won't launch with the game.

I have bought EMS from theHunter website- log on as usual and click on "Get EMS"- should take you to "Steam". I hope you get it sorted. :) Peace,

A thought occurs to me here, make sure your Steam overlays are on. Some games require it to make purchases, Classic iirc is one of them.

I just tried to buy EM$ using the website, and it wants me to pay with my Steam Wallet. I can't even figure out how to know how much, if anything is in my Steam Wallet, and if I have never bought anything through there, how do they know that I want to pay with PayPal?

Yes, there has to be money in your "Steam Wallet" to buy EM$ now, it has been like that for a couple of years. To tell if you have $ in "Steam Wallet" you need to be logged into theHunter- when you click on buy EM$ it'll take you to "Steam" in the top right corner of that page you should see your "Steam Wallet". To add $ you click on add funds. There are choices of $5, $10, $25, $50, and $100. This will be charged to a CC . I hope that helps. ;) Respct,

BCKidd.
