Steam Digital Gift Cards Now Available

Share

To buy a digital gift card, Steam members can simply sign into their account and choose an amount and a friend to send the funds to.

Physical Steam Gift Cards have been available for purchase in retail stores for quite some time, allowing Steam users to gift money to other users' Steam Wallets.

The launch does come with a couple of restrictions, however. These cards first appeared in the United Kingdom back in December 2013, though even before that you could pop into some games retailers to hand over cash for steam wallet codes - in a similar way that you might have topped up a PAYG phone.

Personalize the gift card with a custom name, message and signature.

Although this also disrupted users who use this method to purchase game in countries where the base cost of a game is gouged, some hope that this update is a step in the right direction to help alleviate these troubles. This isn't a problem in and of itself, but it does mean that non-Steam users are still tied to physical gift cards. Furthermore, they can only buy cards for someone they have had on their friends list for three or more days. There's no explanation for why this is the case, but it is likely something to do with the legalities of transferring currency across state borders. And in the very unlikely event of the gift card being rejected, Steam will issue a full refund into your Steam Wallet.

It is still possible to gift virtual items such as games directly to friends. The sender selects a set amount from £5 to £100, then the recipient can redeem the value which is then stored on their digital wallet.
