Gift Payment

Recommended Posts

What a great idea though! There are (probably) loads of users who don't necessarily care about xats themselves, but have friends who do!

 

One problem is if the person accidentally gifts the wrong account, I suppose.

This would make it less suspicious if a friend were to give you a bunch of xats. You wouldn't have to worry about them being stolen xats, days etc. 

 

The recipient should also receive an email just saying that *so and so* bought them a gift. There'd have to be some sort of notification to make sure the recipient is aware, otherwise they'd question where they got a bunch of xats from.

The buyer should have a message pop-up asking if they are sure they want to gift SOANDSO(IDHERE). Maybe even a message reminding people to verify the regname and ID of their friend. But this could become an issue if the user changes regnames/ID's quite often. Either way, it's still mostly the buyers fault for not checking to make sure they have it right. 

 

I can see this being used during many occasions (Christmas, Birthdays etc). Nice idea!

If this were implemented I would also like the option to either accept or decline unlike the current gift system where you get it whether you like it or not.

 

This is primarily for instances where the reserve is transferred. Some users may not know that this is the case and unwillingly get a reserve on their account.

Person 1: Yay! I found a buyer for my ID, going to delete it now. 

 

Person 2 gifts Person 1 500 xats and 30 days

 

Person 2: No you're not ;) 

 

Is it really worth 5 dollars, though? 

 

Infact, how about we only allow gifting via payments that do not come with reserve as to eliminate any possible issues with it, and of course allow someone to use their gift they received. I can't speak for all, but I would be quite annoyed if i received a 500 xat gift and then not being able to use it all, even if xat told me or made me acknowledge the fact my account now has a reserve.

If the problem with the idea is the reserve, xat could make it that you can only buy xats and days as gifts if you use PaymentWall or PaySafeCard.

 

If there was a way to accept/reject the gift, it could work for all payment methods then.

The gift receiver could be told about the xats reserve risk cause of the payment method used before they confirm to "receive the gift" (get the xats).

This is the main thing now since with reserve is out of the question.

So you want to gift a complete purchase ?

 

and this is just so they can get the paid flag ?

 

Why do they want the paid flag ?

 

The buy page could have a "gift to id" ?

Ticket stuff (since that's where it only applies I believe). I know for short names, you can't make requests for other users. If they're paid however, people won't have to ask a friend. Location updates (within the same country) and domain unblocks are convenient.

This would be wonderful.

Correct - as these would apply a reserve and as you said could create a huge mess if whoever purchases the xats reverses the payment.

I think this would make a great birthday gift, or christmas gift etc. I like this idea. I think it would be a safe way and easier to do than actually buying xats yourself and having to transfer the xats/days to the person you want to give it too.

I wonder how many will use this functionality, I think the buyer should get something like a special pawn or/and new smilies.

 

It will make people buy more and make a present for their friends (soon xmas).

I often would gift a $5 subway card to give users paid flag.  I never had any issues.  Often times, they would just give me the xats back to make

them a paid user..not that I ever expected it.  Point would be..its a gift.  Why would the buyer expect something from it?

Cause I don't think a lot will use this functionality, it's a way to "force them".

More gift payment = more money for xat.

It would be great in special occasions and to benefit with ticket stuffs paid thing.
