Steam introduce Steam Digital Gift Cards

Steam introduce Steam Digital Gift Cards

But fret not - as holiday sales approach, you can now top up your friend's Steam Wallet by purchasing a digital gift card.

Steam users can make use of the new system by logging into their Steam account, selecting an amount from the presets in the Digital Gift Cards page, and choosing a friend to send the card to, with a personalized message.

Valve has announced Digital Gift Cards for its distribution platform Steam. Buy one for a friend in another region and it'll get converted to your pal's local currency. Hopefully they don't spend all your gift money on loot boxes.

Physical gift cards are also available at a number of stores, and can be redeemed for Steam wallet credit.




Additionally, you can only give Digital Gift Cards to people you have been friends with on Steam for at least three days.

It is still possible to gift virtual items such as games directly to friends. The value of the new Digital Cift Cards range between $5 all the way up to $100.

Digital gift cards are the flawless gift for any PC gamer with a wishlist full of strong upcoming titles, or they are for someone that does not have a set wishlist or one who prefers microtransactions and DLC.

There is no restriction other than both the sender and the recipient must have a Steam account. If the user accepts the gift, it's added to their Steam library. Since it is digital, there is no need to purchase it in retail stores or in online stores before use.
