I prefer Kinguin. All retailers I contacted at reddit used some third party payment method I didn't trust at all.

Most the time yes, however the source of the key is unknown(so there is a chance of buying a stolen key).

The way it works is that they get keys for cheap from other regions such as russia or china where windows is cheaper.

 

If you go with one the sellers thats reputable you should be fine. There is always risk but plenty of people have had good experiences.
