Want to get something special for your chess-obsessed friend or loved one? You can now gift any of the 100s of chess courses on the iChess store.
When you purchase a course as a gift, it will be delivered to the recipient’s email address, along with your custom message!
Check the “Is this a gift?” box on the relevant product page and click Buy Now (or, add the product to your cart if you wish to shop for more items).
When you check out, you can enter the email address of the recipient, and the purchased product(s) will automatically be added to their iChess account.
If the email address isn’t already connected to an iChess account, a new user account will automatically be created and the gift email will include a randomly-generated login password for the recipient.

It isn’t currently possible to schedule gifts as the process is automatic and gifts are delivered immediately after checkout.
You will receive a confirmation email with the order details. The recipient will receive an email containing the gift and your message. They will not be able to see the price.
Your order confirmation email and the email for the recipient are sent at the same time – when you receive the email, you can rest assured the recipient has also received an email.
If the gift is a digital product, the recipient will receive an email telling them to login to their iChess account. If they don’t have an account already, one will be created for them. Once logged in, they can visit the Downloads or Streaming sections in their dashboard, and their new course(s) will be there.
If it’s a physical product, the person will receive an email with the product information, and as soon as we get the corresponding tracking number, we will let you know.
