The ability to purchase products for others (or have others purchase products for you) over the web, with delayed delivery, etc.
Hello!!! I use to by logos books for my students, but I only can do this by chat or skype. I want to gift books only using the web. By my own.

A 2012 idea that has gone by the wayside?
When the 'wish list' first became a reality I thought this was a great idea.
I like the idea of being able to purchase product for others.
What a great way to honour pastor appreciation month ;-) . . . will it be ready by the end of this October?

I heartily agree that this is a much needed feature. I am eager to build my electronic library and I have lots of friends and family who tend to buy me books and resources as gifts. They would for sure buy me a Logos gift card if it was easy to purchase. I investigated this possibility and was told that people can purchase vouchers and/or add credits directly to someone's account...but that just seems too complicated. And I can already predict my family members complaining, "but then you wouldn't have something to open!"
This seems like a no-brainer. I hope they can make gift cards available soon.
I believe families will be more tempted to buy a Gift Voucher for their loved ones (who use Logos Software) rather than just having the ability to purchase a specified book. Amazon Kindle does extremely well in this whole field, could Logos not learn from them... I'm glad the wish-list feature has been added but a lot more needs to be done.
I would appreciate this along with adding a button to our Wishlist page so that it can act as a registry. This could be a great benefit to missionaries, strapped students etc.

This has been a long-promised feature which goes back around 2-3 years. Bob mentioned how Logos needs to sell content in order to stay afloat. This is the reason for bundling packages as a marketing tool. Well, Logos might be surprised how much content would be sold if Logos joined the gift economy. I estimate that I would have spent several hundred dollars more if I diverted a proportion of my birthday/Xmas spending to Logos, spending that I would otherwise be putting toward gift hardcopy books and commentaries that I give to my studious friends. Even a simple voucher system would have been a great leap forward.

This would be good, but I would prefer a gift card arrangement. I feel like people would be more likely to make use of it.
