CodaShop started selling Genesis Crystals for Genshin Impact, stating they are an official 3rd party top-up shop for miHoYo’s popular free-to-play RPG.
Some fans, skeptical about how legit the service was, reached out to Genshin Impacts’s customer service in order to ensure CodaShop was actually a secure and valid place to purchase Genesis Crystals online.
One player posted the response they received from Genshin Customer Service in the official Hoyolab Forums:
“Hellow, Traveler! Completely legal, you can purchase there and it’s totally safe and legal ^^ Best regards”
The user, Tavern, encouraged other users to reach out to customer service themselves if they doubted them.
It is worth noting that English is not the first language of many of the customer support representatives.
