The Humble Store is a digital distribution storefront operated by the team behind the Humble Bundle.

Unlike Humble Bundle where users must buy a bundle containing a few selected games in it, Humble Store allows users to purchase a single game and DLC. Games purchased through Humble Store are available as either direct download, or activation keys for other platforms such as Steam and Epic Games Store. The acquisition method for a game can be changed by the game publisher after it has been purchased.[1]

Around 10% of most Humble Store purchases will go to a PayPal Giving Fund charity that can be changed in the user settings. However, some publishers have opted their games out from such donations.[2]

Humble Store was added to the main Humble Bundle website on November 11, 2013, but not all games sold through Humble widgets have migrated to the store yet.

It should be noted that for activation keys, Humble Store doesn't disclose if the keys they distribute are region-locked or not.[3]

Purchasing

Games can be purchased via the developer's website (e.g. VVVVVV) or sometimes by going to https://www.humblebundle.com/store/GAMENAME (e.g. https://www.humblebundle.com/store/bittriprunner).

Content included with a purchase depends on a per game basis. For example, Gish only includes a direct download for the game, whereas Legend of Grimrock contains a Steam key also and Retro City Rampage pre-order contains the direct download, redeemable key, mini-soundtrack, printable NES label, digital manual and a 20% coupon for their store.

Library

Games purchased via the Humble Store widget appear in the Humble Library (available from https://www.humblebundle.com/home), alongside any Humble Indie Bundles you have purchased with the same account.

Issues fixed

Order cancelled

This can occur when purchasing more than 3 of the same game or bundle using the same payment method. It appears to be an anti-fraud measure.
Use different payment method[4]

Use a different payment method, e.g. after using PayPal for 3 keys, switch to Credit Card or Amazon payments.

Lost Humble email

Use the Humble Order Resender.

The full list of games that use the store is uncertain, though many can be found by searching for "Humble Indie Bundle, Game" in Google. However, according to Jeffrey Rosen all games in previous Humble Bundles had store pages created for them so that they could see what a widget would be like.[5] This means that some are intended to be private and not used by general consumers.
