Steam now lets you buy digital gift cards

Earlier in the decade, Valve's store front, Steam, allowed people to purchase gift cards that would add funds to a users account to make purchases. You can purchase them with the normal Steam methods of payment, whether you choose credit or debit cards, PayPal, or Bitcoin.

Physical gift cards are also available at a number of stores, and can be redeemed for Steam wallet credit. These cards first appeared in the United Kingdom back in December 2013, though even before that you could pop into some games retailers to hand over cash for steam wallet codes - in a similar way that you might have topped up a PAYG phone. The only catch in this situation is that Steam will convert the value of the gift card to the recipient's currency, i.e sending from Malaysia to Singapore will have the value changed from Ringgit to Singapore Dollars.

If you're feeling generous, head over to Steam's website for more details. There are, however, a few stipulations when it comes to purchasing a digital gift card.

Select the desired gift card from the available selection.

As reported by VG247, it isn't the simplest system ever, as you can't just find them by typing them into the search bar, and you can only send them to those on your friends list, but it's a welcome addition nonetheless. There are gift card options for $5, $10, $20, $50, and $100 respectively. Circumventing region-locks that prevent the gifting of games.
