GOG GALAXY Store Adding Multi-Service Store

GOG.com announces an enhancement planned for their GOG GALAXY client. Similar to how GALAXY 2.0 supports launching games owned through services besides GOG.com, the client store will allow you to purchase games from other storefronts as well. They are currently internally testing this new feature with the Epic Games Store, and say they will be inviting additional users of the service to participate in the testing as time goes by. Here's word:
We created GOG GALAXY 2.0 to give gamers a better way of organizing all their games across multiple gaming platforms into one library. Since its launch, the most requested new feature has been the option to buy games not only from GOG.COM, but from other platforms as well, straight from the GOG GALAXY app.

Today, we’re happy to invite the first group of gamers to test the brand new store we’re working on, and share their feedback with us.

In the new store, we will be welcoming games from both GOG.COM and beyond - including titles previously exclusive only to other gaming platforms. With the internal beta launching today, invited users will have the option to buy games from a selection of hand-picked Epic Games Store exclusive titles, alongside all GOG.COM games. Most importantly, all purchases are covered by our 30-days refund policy as well as 24/7 human support.

There is still plenty of work ahead of us. As the internal beta test continues, we will be inviting more gamers, expanding the store's catalog and introducing new features. For a chance to be part of this test, join GOG GALAXY today at www.gogalaxy.com.

While I laud CDPR's efforts, I remain unconvinced Galaxy is a stable product. Whenever I periodically launch the app, my games from other services keep disappearing even though I've synchronized with those services (GOG games are the only games that consistently appear in Galaxy without problems). It then turns into an hour-long ordeal of relinking the services and then figuring out why games I own on those services do not appear. Out of frustration, I stop using Galaxy. This pattern repeats itself every time I launch Galaxy. I am not prepared to have to deal with this headache at a purchasing level. For all I know, my money could get lost in the ether between Galaxy and the store. In the case of Steam, issuing a Paypal chargeback typically results in Valve banning an account from making additional purchases.

Yeah, I have the problem too. At first everything showed, now only about 1/3'rd of my installed games from other services show (it's been like that for a few months). Haven't delved too hard at looking into what may be up with that.
