What if I don’t have an email address?

If you don’t know the email address of your recipients, you can choose to get the redemption link on the checkout page. That way, you can share the link with your loved ones. After completing the purchase, you’ll receive instructions on how to manage the process via email.


Unfortunately, you can only purchase Kindle eBooks as gifts if you’re sending them to someone in your country. So if you’re in the US for example, you can only send to recipients in the US as well. If the recipient isn’t in your country, they will not be able to redeem the book. In this case, you can either send it to another recipient or request for a refund.
