How to purchase a gift certificate:
Gift Certificates are purchased just like any other menu item in our store. You can pay for them using our standard payment methods (credit card and Pay Pal). Once purchased, the value of the Gift Certificate will be added to your DriveThruRPG account credit.
Once you have some account credit, you will notice that the amount now shows up in the shopping cart at the top right side of your Account page (available from the tab at the top of the page). In your shopping cart box there are also links to redeem Gift Certificates or to send a Gift Certificate to some one via email.
To use your account credit, just be sure to check the box at checkout that says "Click here to use account credit." You will see your order total adjusted on the next page before you actually complete your order.
How to send a gift certificate or account credit to another account:
