  • Valve introduces Digital Gift Cards to Steam

Mimicking the retail Steam Gift Cards, the digital ones are also only purchasable in preset amounts, and existing Steam Wallet funds can not be used to purchase them.

The digital gift card works differently. Instead of having a customizable amount, the digital gift cards operate just like physical cards with $5, $10, $25, $50, and $100 cards.

Users can send a digital gift card using PayPal, Bitcoin, and major debit or credit cards from Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, and JCB.

Obviously what this is good for is people who don't know what sort of game to buy someone else, thus allowing them to choose, or to spend the digital dollerydoos on their in-game purchases of choice. It has the basic system of the old Steam gifting options. These types of websites were able to have many copies of one game at once in their Steam inventory.

Select the friend that you want to gift it. Since it is digital, there is no need to purchase it in retail stores or in online stores before use.

Declined gift cards are refunded, either to the original payment method if supported, or otherwise to your Steam wallet.

With several Steam sales coming up, plus the holiday season, this could be a useful feature for sending someone a gift if you don't know what game they would like.
