Question Wanting to Send a Premium Subscription for A Gift
My sister used to me a member a few years ago, but stopped sweeping as I did.
I got back into it last summer after being absent for 5 years. My sister would like to start sweeping again too.
I want to send her a gift subscription, but not sure how it works.
Would I do it under her old user ID?
What address would she be notified letting her know she has a gift subscription?
I don't want to do it if it's going to an email address she no longer uses.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance

all you have to do is go to Options/Help in upper tab, and select Premium Subscription.

Scroll down, select Subscription Length, check Gift? and put in her Username.

If you use Paypal, it's immediate. Her email addy is not needed.

paypal would not send her an email, as the OLS subscription/gift to her does not involve her paypal at all.

If OLS sends out an email alerting her of the gift (I cannot recall if they do or not), it would go to whatever email she has connected to her OLS account. If it is not a current email, she would need to log in to OLS and update her email on account here.

Not that I'm aware of they wouldn't. Her email address not involved in the payment, so how would PayPal notify her?

just went to the subscription page and found this:

"NEW!!! All OLS members will now receive an instant email notification anytime your OLS account is credited with a new subscription. Gift recipients will receive an email notification that includes the provided gift note, if any. "

So - if that still holds true - she will need to update her email thru OLS if it is not current - or she will see the updated status (premium sweeps) when she nexts logs on.

Well, I didn't get to surprise her like I wanted too, but told her what I did.
She had to check to see what email address she was using for OLS since it's been so long since she's logged in lol
She was happy the gift subscription though

I had a friend gift me a premium subscription, and wanted to surprise me.
I was halfway through the month she had gifted me before she caved and told me what she had done.

So it might be a good thing you let her know rather than her just noticing!
