Steam now lets you buy digital gift cards

Steam users were already able to gift each other products, but the new Digital Gift Card system allows receivers to choose a product themselves. One other point to pay attention to is that you can not use your existing Steam wallet funds to pay for a gift card.

Now Valve has opened up purchasing of Digital Gift Cards on Steam. Buy one for a friend in another region and it'll get converted to your pal's local currency. For instance, you can't just type in the different gift card options in the search bar and buy it that way. Hopefully they don't spend all your gift money on loot boxes.

As you could imagine, it's pretty straight forward and works much in the way of physical Steam Gift Cards. except you don't have to leave your house!

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. A personalised message can be added alongside the gifted funds on the digital gift card.

Right in time for the holidays, PC games seller Steam is beefing up its gift cards service.

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. The new digital gift cards option adds another option to the gifting process.
