  • Click on “Login”.

  • From your Investment Summary page, under “What would you like to do?”, select “Search and Buy Stock”.

  • Search for GME or GameStop, and select it.

  • Review the fees ($5 fee per individual investment, and $2.50 for recurring), and then select “Invest Now”.

  • If you already have GameStop shares in your Computershare account, a message will pop up asking if you'd like to add more shares to your existing account, or create a new account for this purchase. Select “Buy More”.

  • Choose if you would like this to be a one time investment, or set up a recurring monthly payment. Then enter how many dollars you'd like to invest and click “Next”.

  • Select if your bank account is a checking or savings account. Enter the Account number and Routing number of the bank account you wish to use to pay. Then click “Next”.

  • Computershare will now ask for an email address to send you confirmation of your investment. Enter your email address and click “Next”.

  • On the final page you can review a breakdown of this investment. If you are happy with all of the information click the checkbox agreeing to the terms and conditions, and then click on “Submit”.

Congratulations you have now submitted a purchase directly through Computershare!

You will receive a confirmation email shortly afterwards. Computershare will pull the money from your bank account within 2 business days. After a few more days Computershare will submit the buy order in a large batch trade along with other Computershare investors.

While the delay seems problematic, this actually helps with price movement. As the batch orders are often round or mixed lots and purchased on lit exchanges.
