Autokey is the name of the unique Digital Delivery system that CJS-CDKeys.com built and use to dispatch items to customers. If you find an 'Autokey' system anywhere else, it is a rip-off! CJS are proud to be the original designers and creators of the Autokey system. It is an online system which allows customers to collect their purchased codes with ease.
No. Our system does not generate the codes, it simply stores them and dispatches them to customers as required. When you collect a code from autokey, it simply grabs a key from our stock, assigns it to your order, and displays it to you. The Autokey system itself does not generate the codes, CJS CD Keys staff upload the codes taken from retail boxes to the Autokey System.
CJS CD Keys have taken care to design the Autokey system in a way that is as easy as possible for the customer to use.

Our company functions by importing the games from main distributors within the EU, where games have cheaper retail prices than in countries such as the UK. Because of the savings made in postage costs (as our items are sent digitally), it allows us to provide extremely low pricing. Not only this, but the games work worlwide as digital downloads, unlike physical games which have region locked discs. You can read more about our company on our About Us Page.
