In-Progress Gifts!

published Dec 06, 2012

Just in time for the holiday season, you can now give Leanpub books as gifts!

  • There’s a new checkbox on the purchase form. If you select it you enter the email address of the recipient and a gift note.
  • Your gift purchases that you have given show up on a Gifts tab on your dashboard.
  • Gift purchases that you have received show up as normal purchases.
  • The gift recipient does not need to create an account: they can download the book in all 3 formats directly from the page they are taken to on receiving the gift. But if they do create an account they get updates.
  • And, finally, if you already have a Leanpub account (like everyone here) and you receive a gift, you just click the link in the gift email and when you go to the page it’s added to your account.

So, hopefully the ability for your books to be given as gifts means everyone has an extra-happy holiday season :)
