You Can Now Send Digital Gift Cards On Steam


Gift cards are very useful. If you don’t know what item would be a suitable gift for a friend or family member but still want to give something, you can hand them a monetary gift card for them to use and buy what they like.

Today’s new Steam update now adds the ability to send digital gift card to your Steam friends. All you have to do is select the gift card amount (RM15, RM30, RM75, RM150 and RM300 for Malaysia), select a friend to give it to and complete the purchase with your payment details. There’s no restrictions so far to who you can give to- friends from other countries will receive the card converted to their currency automatically- and friends can decline the offer- which the purchase of the card will be refunded.

Steam’s game gifting is still available. Since game gifting has some restrictions- certain games are locked to regions to avoid people buying them at cheaper price points to give to people at other countries- this is a nice workaround for those situations.

You can find the Steam Gift cards currently at the top left of the Steam Store, or this link here.
