Here are a few questions and answers related to gifting TPDb Pro subscriptions.

  1. Are gifts refundable?
    1. As stated above, gifts sent to other users or yourself are non-refundable.
  2. Can I gift myself?
    1. Yes! You have the ability to gift yourself. It's one way you can test out TPDb Pro without being locked in to a subscription. Then, if you don't want the goodies to disappear at the end of your term, make sure to activate and add a billing method (if you haven't already) so the fun doesn't stop!
  3. How can I gift a user?
    1. When you're on their profile page, the gift option will be displayed beside the report button in the header of the page. When it's available (see below), you have the option to gift that user.
  4. How come I can't see the gift button on a users profile?
    1. If the user has already been gifted or in a gifting period (see below), you will be unable to gift the user further. With that, the gifting button on the users profile will be hidden until the user is able to be gifted again.
  5. How does a gift get applied?
    1. Gifts are automatically applied without user interaction. There are two different scenarios for a gift
      1. User already has a subscription - the gift will be applied to the users next billing period
      2. User doesn't have subscription - the user is setup immediately based on the gifted plan and offered TPDb Pro Lite or TPDb Pro for the duration of the gifted plan
  6. Why is there an odd coupon code on my invoice?
    1. When you're gifted, an automatic coupon is created and applied (see above). The coupon will look something like this gift-June-2020-IwdPOCmN8u. This symbolizes that the coupon is a gift, the month and year it was offered/purchased, and then a random set of characters uniquely identifying your coupon.
  7. Can I view sent or received gifts?
    1. Provided you've either sent and/or received a gift in the past, you'll be able to view that information under the Billing section on the Account Settings Page. The gifts will only displays when you've sent or received a gift. The invoiced table will display invoices for purchased gifts and also your subscription invoice when the gift is applied (this is only when you've received a gift).
  8. Can gifts be anonymous?
    1. Yes! Gift out of the box can be anonymous if you'd like. When you're on the payment page about to enter your billing info, you have the option to select if you'd like to make the gift anonymous. With that, at the same time, you're able to add a note/message that will be emailed to the user along with the gift notification.
