Steam Halloween Sale starts soon!

Steam: Gifting System


Steam Gifting will now be a system of direct exchange from gift buyer to gift receiver – Valve has removed the Gift to E-mail and Gift to Inventory options.

 

Benefits from the new system:

  • Scheduling Gifts Is Even More Straightforward. Go ahead and buy a gift months in advance and have it delivered to a friend on time, every time.
  • Declined Gifts Resolve The Way They Should. In the old system, a declined gift would sneak back into the giver’s inventory and remain on their bill. Now, if a recipient already has the title, or just doesn’t want it, they can click decline and the purchase is refunded directly to the gift giver.
  • Safe Cross-Country Gifting. No more worrying if a Gift to E-mail or Gift to Inventory is going to work for a friend, gifts sent through the new system will always work on the receiver’s account. When there is a large difference in pricing between countries, gifting won’t be available and you’ll know before purchase.

These changes are now available. Pre-existing gifts will be unaffected by this change.
