Is there any way to buy Logos books for someone else? Gift them? Or have non-Logos users purchase books for me as gifts?

Call Logos with users account info (username).

It's very easy. Call FL and they'll walk you through it.

After you gift to someone an icon will show up on your order history as below.

What you can't do is buy an online 'Faithlife Credit Giftcard' for someone else, which people have been asking to be able to do for ages.

Yes this needs to be an option to do online. Calling up is only works for those calling from a local number, no good if you are calling international number.

e-mailing or IM'ing will work as well, I'm sure

This is available from many online services - and I'm sure my family and friends would take advantage of it - at least I hope they would when it comes to gifts for me Wink They are not going to make international calls - and they are not likely to IM / email to Logos - but purchasing online gift cards is very common to them.

I'd love for people to be able to buy gift cards online. If someone is asking what birthday/Christmas gifts to get me, I don't want to request something that would make them have to phone a company in another country, give them my username and then their credit card details - it's too much work. I don't feel comfortable doing that myself, so I can't ask it of others.

I won employee of the month last week and HR gave me £250 (roughly $360) worth of vouchers/giftcards for the shop of my choice, and my first choice would have been Logos, but sadly it's not possible.

Hi Ben!

There are two great ways for you to purchase resources to a friend:

1)      You can “gift” the resource to your friend.

2)      You can add credit to your friends account so that they can purchase the items they have been wanting.

Both of these can be done by one of our Sales Representatives. Feel free to give us a call at 888-875-9491.

Totally agree with you James. Calling is not a solution for internatiomal customers.

Congtatulations on the work award.

I live the the U.S., and while calling is an option, it's not an option I'm willing to do, unless maybe the the person specifically asks for it (unlikely). Same thing with IM/email. 

Doesn't even have to a be a physical card sent, an online gift card is be more than enough.

I'm sure Faithlife would make extra income... but then maybe not, people might not buy hoping that come bday, Christmas or some other important date for them they will get gift cards and generally only spend then, instead of throughout the year.

I also live in the US and a gift card to Logos would be an excellent birthday and Father's Day present (both of which are coming up).  Unfortunately, I know my wife isn't going to call.

Please make available the ability to give a gift card or purchase resources for someone's account via the internet (without having to call).  This would be a huge help and generate more sales.  It should not be too difficult to do.

Well, you would think. However, FL said at one time that it was being worked on... but that was years ago. If it were "easy," it would have been finished before now.

Several times now, to my dismay, my wife has said, "I wanted to get you a Logos book, but couldn't figure out how."    She won't be calling to make it happen.

Not necessarily.  They may have put the project on the back burner, thinking it was not important.  As you mentioned, it was years ago.  I am revising the thread.  I am in Poland at the moment, wanting to gift Logos Fundamentals to two believers in the country.  No way to do it easily.  Call HQ?  Cant do that while in Europe.  Call when I am home?  What information am I going to need?  We no longer live in a calling society. We have wish lists...why cannot we purchase a gift card to give to someone?  I have a difficult time believing this is not easy to find a way to do this.

It is possible to make a free Skype call to a toll free number in the USA. I have done that a number of times overseas. The 888 number is toll-free.

Yes, I can call on skype or wait until I am back home.  I can call and spend 5-10 minutes, maybe more on the phone...but I will not...and Logos will lose two sales.  I understand I can call.  But I will not.  it is slow, wasting my time...needs to be done during business hours...

What is wrong with an online option?

The easiest way to do this is to create an account with there details (email etc.) pay on your card for the base package and then delete your card details. I've done that before, by far the easiest way.
