The holidays are coming and it’s time to start giving, with eManga’s new awesome “Gift This” feature. Now you can give and spread the joy of manga to all those nearest and dearest to you.
Q: How do I use the Gift This Item button?
If you want to send a particular eBook to a friend as a gift, click the Gift This Item button. Once clicked it’ll go to your GIFT CART (repeat the steps to give multiple titles as gifts).
When you are ready to check out, click the final GIFT THESE ITEMS button in your My Gift Cart. Once clicked, it will then ask you to fill out information of the recipient you want to send the gift to, and then it will send you to the checkout to make your purchase transaction.
(Please note that you can not combine gift items with your regular purchases during a purchase session. You will have to complete all gift purchases first, all the way through the final transaction before starting again with your regular purchase session.)
Once you check out and payment made, an email notification will be sent to your gift recipient as well a confirmation to you. Your recipient will then need to click the link in the email notification and either login or register a new eManga account. Once logged in, the gift title(s) will automatically go into their eManga library.
Q: How do I send a free eBook to use as a Gift This Item?
Select your free ebook you want to send to your recipient from the Free section of ebooks and click the Gift This Item button.
1. You can only send one free title per gift at a time.
2. Once you click send, the free title to your recipient will be sent immediately. (This is a completely separate action from your items in your shopping cart or gift cart and will not affect items in your cart.)
3. There is no registration required when the gift is accepted. The recipient will be redirected to the title’s product page.
4. The recipient will be able to download the free ebook directly from the title’s product page. (Note: Free titles are not stored in the recipient’s library.)
