How to purchase a PDF as a gift


Customer Service

I'd like to purchase two PDFs as a gift, but since I already own them, the store won't let me add them to my shopping cart. Am I missing something?


If you buy a PDF, it is personalized for you, therefore you cannot buy it several times.

Instead, use the Paizo Gift Certificates

You won't be able to buy the PDFs to send them to someone else, but you can send the gift certificate to the person so he/she can buy the PDF. Like a gift card.

Buying a gift certificate is certainly an option. From the email that was sent from Paizo, I understood that I could directly purchase a PDF for someone else and after checkout it would be added to their download pages.


Oh, you're right. I remember that now. I got the e-mail too.
That's actually a good thing to buy PDF books for friends.

You can now purchase PDFs as gifts for other paizo.com customers. Just select "show gift options" during checkout. (You'll need to provide their paizo.com avatar name.)

Although if i had the chance to work for a company like that, i would gladly work on week-ends too...

I must watch what i'm writing, sometimes...

Was confused because my wife stayed home today, so it looked like a sunday, although i brought our son to daycare.

Nikosandros, I've figured out where the problem is and this should be fixed tomorrow. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Is this fixed? I'd also like to buy a few PDFs of the rulebook as gifts.

Nevermind. I think I figured it out. I just have to buy each pdf individually and send the notification by e-mail. Pretty cool!

Paizo Employee PostMonster General

You can also buy multiple core rulebook PDFs for multiple people in a single order. Just set the quantity in your cart to the number of copies you want to buy. The site will prompt for multiple recipients. Or, on the "select recipient" page, click the "use multiple recipients" button.

Finally getting around to doing this. Whenever I click on either select recipient or add new recipient the page just reloads and nothing happens. Help, please?

Paizo Employee PostMonster General

Well that's weird. It was working before.

I'll post again when it's fixed.

Paizo Employee PostMonster General

Whoops, forgot to post yesterday. This should be working now.

Off-by-1 error? 90% of computer bugs are off-by-1 errors. Well, less now that threading race conditions are catching up, but they're still the big kahunas in the sushi pond.
