View Full Version : Gifting Kickstarter Pledges

There has been a lot of talk on the KS "Comments" section about the possibility of "gifting pledges"... The bad thing about the KS Comments section is its moving quite fast, isn't threaded and is impossible to search. So I figured I'd pose the question here, and hope for a response.

I have a group of friends that are very much on the fence about the idea of Hex. I'd like to pledge $ towards the Kickstarter goal for each of them (3) to ensure they are in beta and get a decent amount of cards to begin with. I really don't want to have to create kickstarter accounts for each of them, since KS accounts need to be activated etc.

Is there a way to "Gift" a plege for my friends? This seems like a reasonable request, and something Crytpozoic should be interested in... I'll basically be handing my friends a bag of virtual crack.

I just made new kickstarter accounts with some of my old/spam email addresses and pledged for my wife & a friend.

I'm not sure but going to the hextcg.com website and using there paypal method might work for you.

Your choice right now is either use paypal at http://hextcg.com/donate/ or another kickstarter account. Sounds like you'd prefer paypal as to not require multiple kickstarter accounts.

Couldn't you just create a kickstarter account with your friends email, then choose the pledge you want for them to have?

Empulse, we can sort out the details about that PP that you wanted to gift me. It's all OK ;)

Hi,

How does Paypal differentiate who the kickstarter belong to assuming I use the same Paypal account to purchase for 3 friends?

Thank you so much for giving advice in this area

Or has anyone found out a way to gift to friends?

Much thanks

I'm interested in gifting a pledge as well. Do the rewards from http://hextcg.com/donate/ include the stretch goal rewards from the Kickstarter campaign?

Yes.

Puppet: Cryptozoic will announce exactly how the rewards will be distributed after the kickstarter is over. You can donate multiple times now and sort out which accounts you want them to go to (you or your friends) when they announce this.

Hello! I have the same question and I would just like to confirm the procedure to gifting pledges. I want to gift 2 Warrior tiers so I can donate 2 times 35$ with my paypal account and then I will be able to gift the pledges once the Kickstarter ends?

Cheers
