Automatic Gift Payments

Automatic Gift Payments

Short, concise description of the idea
Include the automatic payment option when purchasing a paid membership as a gift.

Full description of the idea
I bought a paid membership for my daughter and forgot to renew it -- oops! She lost some of her nifty benefits until we figured out what had happened, and I bought her another year's paid membership.

If LJ would add the "automatic payment" option to the paid memberships purchased as gifts, I would certainly use it.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Improved cash flow for LiveJournal, since more payments will be automated.
  • Increased customer satisfaction, as recipients of gift paid memberships don't have to wonder whether they'll get that gift renewed or not.
  • More increased customer satisfaction, as people who give paid memberships for gifts can set them up as annual birthday gifts, etc.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Modifying the gift shop will take valuable developer time away from reviving the /ljsingles/ feature?

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • Expand existing "automatic payment" option to cover gift paid memberships as well.
