# 1 Gifting C-Store Purchases
08-03-2010, 09:19 AM
I'd like to be able to use my C-Store points to purchase items for my friends - things I would never buy for myself, and that they would never pay money for, but which I am willing to buy for them.

Sound odd? Yes, but consider how many stores out there live off this type of sale... the entire concept of a "gag gift" is unthinkable if people only bought what they or their friends actually wanted, to say nothing of Christmas shopping and birthday gifts. And yes, I know you've had your eye on that Golden Tribble for a while...

It seems like a win-win situation, really:
  • Players get to buy gifts for their friends
  • Cryptic makes sales that they might not have otherwise

The only potential downside I can see is security-related:
  • Increased potential for damage if a security breach occurs (account hacked/stolen -> C-Store credits purchased using cached payment info -> Items "Gifted" to people via third-party site coordinated transactions)

Or maybe they were an awesome fleet member or really helped them out and wanted to show gratitude.

I really like this idea. As a Fleet Admiral for First Starfleet Regiment I want to be able to in some way reward my fleet for above and beyond the call of duty. I feel as though this would be a great way of doing so.

Maybe the simplest implementation would be the ability to buy Cstore Vouchers on the cstore which you can send via ingame mail. Or maybe you can just buy vouchers for items.

This is a great idea! I would love to get some of my friends stuff like extra costume slots as a gift.

Fantastic idea!

Steam; and I think a couple F2P games I've played, have this option - it's really a good idea all around.
