My wife is being asked by one of my relatives what to get me for Christmas.

Is there a way for someone else to gift me a game by digital download?

Well - for a digital download, all they'd have to do is buy it for you and then give you the details (order number, last 5 numbers of the credit card, email addy used to buy it and serial number)...then you could go to Plimus, enter the email address and last 5 digits and download it

It's a round-a-bout way as you'd have to have their details but it is family (not like you'd abuse that information) - but would work.

Thanks, uncc. I should have searched the forum before posting.

Hmmm, I dunno if I'd have the courage to ask them for all that info. Maybe just a physical purchase would be the best method. That way I wouldn't need to know any of their CC number. Unless it's my mom doing the asking, hehe.

In case of a relative or friend you could give him your Matrix account login and he is going to buy/register a game on your account.

Well Plimus ONLY has search for order on email addy and last 5 (4?) characters of the credit card...a pity as there could be so many other ways to look for an order...order number strikes me as one with password ala DR, or email addy and order number

I hope it's one aspect they change - and quickly. Currently I have nop way of seeing my orders on Plimus because I pay by Paypal. Very short sighted of them not to provide Paypal as a search option being as they provide it as a payment option

If you ever needed the CC number like the old findmyorder it would be sticky.
