Is it possible to "gift" a premium subscription to a friend?
Like pre-paying a set amount of months for somebody and forwarding it to their email?
Yes, you can purchase a gift card for someone at www.funimation.com/shop/gift-card and send it to them. They can redeem the code during subscription sign-up or from Account if the user is already a subscriber, and the gift card balance will be used toward subscription. The person will still need a credit card to be used as the backup payment method when the gift card is depleted, but the user can always cancel their subscription before that happens.
However, we are currently investigating a possible bug where the gift card balance is not used towards the user's subscription, so please hold off on buying the gift until we can confirm that this bug has been resolved.
I see, thanks for the info Sophie. I appreciate it.
