Valve introduces Digital Gift Cards to Steam

Valve introduces Digital Gift Cards to Steam

Earlier in the decade, Valve's store front, Steam, allowed people to purchase gift cards that would add funds to a users account to make purchases. In India, you can use Visa, Mastercard, Skrill, Cash on Delivery, Domestic Debit and Credit Cards, Netbanking, Domestic Prepaid Wallet, or Bitcoin to pay for a Steam Digital Gift Card. Buy one for a friend in another region and it'll get converted to your pal's local currency.

Select the friend that you want to gift it. Hopefully they don't spend all your gift money on loot boxes. There are gift card options for $5, $10, $20, $50, and $100 respectively.

Baby foods test positive for arsenic and lead
A new study shows many popular baby foods have tested positive for arsenic , which can be detrimental to children's development. Two-thirds of baby food in the United States tested positive for arsenic and other risky toxins, a study claims.

Valve noted that the latest Steam gift cards would not replace the existing gift system. Steam gift cards can be used to purchase anything including games, micro-transaction items, things from the community market and hardware. The new gift card system, the company explains, does away with this requirement - though physical cards will still be available - by allowing users to send Steam Wallet balances directly to any Steam user who has been on their friends list for at least three days.

The gift cards page is a bit hidden. Now, a user can purchase the game as a gift and give the other user the option to accept or decline the game. In the United States, you can instead opt for PayPal or Bitcoin or use your Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover or JCB debit or credit cards to buy the gift cards digitally. Other outlets such as PC World also offer them, and will even post them out to you.
