Memberships in sanctioned countries
At Chess.com, we take great pride in serving the global chess community, connecting millions players from every country around the world. Which is why we regret that – due to sanctions imposed by the United States Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) – we are unable to process payments from the following countries:
- North Korea
And we are also currently unable to accept payments from Russia, due to all major payment processors ceasing to process payments from there.
