Steam users were already able to gift each other products, but the new Digital Gift Card system allows receivers to choose a product themselves. There are, however, a few stipulations when it comes to purchasing a digital gift card. It can be hard to pick out a game that you know your friend will like, especially when there's so much to pick from.
Steam wallet codes from physical gift cards do not have country restrictions, and users can redeem codes to the currency of their Steam wallet.
Digital Gift Cards on Steam are designed exclusively for sending money to a friend on Steam.
To do so, the sender must have a Steam account of their own - something that could actually be fairly limiting, as lots of mums and dads and especially grans and grandads may not have access to a Steam account. In India, the Steam Digital Gift Cards are available in certain denominations, starting from Rs. 320 and going up to Rs. 6,400. Since it is digital, there is no need to purchase it in retail stores or in online stores before use.
Personalize the gift card with a custom name, message and signature.
The monetary value of the gift card is added to the friend's wallet automatically. The new digital gift cards option adds another option to the gifting process.
It is still possible to gift virtual items such as games directly to friends.
