Memberships in sanctioned countries
Updated this week

At, 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:

  • Cuba

  • Iran

  • North Korea

  • Syria

  • Venezuela

And we are also currently unable to accept payments from Russia and Myanmar, due to our payment processors ceasing to process payments from there.

We wish things were different, and we are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. If you are in these countries, we hope you will continue using with a free account. Click here to see all of the benefits you can still enjoy.
