    Is it possible to get someone a subscription without them knowing who did it?

    I cannot recall exactly what I did to subscribe, a few months ago. I believe you only need to enter a players name (besides the financial information), don't need to log in as that person. And you will be the one that is getting the bill. So, I guess it is possible.

    I guess you can't subscribe for anyone that is already registered unless you have their registration info.

    Russ, do you have any idea how I can give my brother a subscription without me asking him for his registration info?

    The final step of the subscription process asks for a recipient. Just enter your brother's user name on the site.

    If you go ahead, please let me know if this is a one off too, so I can stop any rebilling.

    Thanks

    Oh MAN! That worked! I am sooo excited! He's got a star now! That is soo cool! I'm his younger brother and he's very competitive. Now we'll see who's the better player! Muwahahahahaha!!! errr.. I mean.. yeah.. this is great... and no.. I'm not very competitive.. nope... not me... Ummm.. anyone seen ironman31 anywhere?

    Thanks again Russ!
    How I did it was... I clicked on his nick. I saw that next to "Subscriber" it says no and it is a link... so I clicked on it... and wala! It took me to the subscribe page. However, I must have missed where you put in the username. After I processed the order, the last page you were talking about popped up and that is where I entered his username.

    I clicked on My Games link and the two games we were playing now has a star next to his name! Soooo kewl Dude!

    You the man!

    errr.. I mean.. Thanks Russ.

    😀

    ps.. I don't know what you mean by please let me know if this is a one off too,...

    Well I believe subscriptions by credit card are autobilling. So will you want to pay for his next years subscription automatically or are you just buying 1 year as a present or something.

    I believe both of the subscriptions I did are one-time authorizations. There was no option for automatic renewal of subscription that I was aware of or that I was given a choice to autorenew or not. did I miss something during the subscirption?
