Hi guys,
I'm trying to buy a 12 month premium membership as a gift for my friend although every single time I place it in my cart it says "This item is not available in your country."

I don't live in the US, but my friend I am trying to gift it to DOES live in the US and because I can't buy the item within my country, but I'm trying to send it within the country it does work in.

Every old post I've seen about gifting memberships seem to have written differently about it saying you enter in the persons email and email them the membership digitally although I can't see any option to do that.

It allows me to purchase a 12 month premium membership for myself for $55 but says for a 12 month premium membership as a gift is $79? How does that even make sense?

Here is a link to the membership gift I am trying to buy -

Here is a link to someone within the forum talking about gifting a membership -

http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-833345/if-i-use-a-prepaid-visa-card-will-that-get-me-premium-crunchyroll#45327885

But as you can see in the links he copy/pasted they are no longer working.


Hope someone can help,
Thanks in advance.

I've moved this over to the Crunchyroll Store support forum where this issue has been brought up by several users and responded to.

The 12-month gift memberships aren't available anywhere right now. However, you should still be able to purchase 30-day memberships as far as I know.

Some specific posts from Crunchyroll staff that provide as much info as they can currently share are:

Thank you for the information.

Any idea when gift memberships might be back up again?

I'm also wondering when 12 month gift memberships will be back. My usual payment method for Crunchy is gone, so I was going to give my dad money and have him purchase a gift membership for me. It'll be kinda annoying to do it every month though.

Edit: Actually, that gives me another question: Can you activate multiple one month gift memberships at the same time and have them just string together? Or do you have to wait for one to run out before activating the next one?
