Gift Upgrades allows your members to easily and quickly purchase upgrades for other members. It is tightly integrated with XenForo's core user upgrade features allowing seamless gifting of upgrades you have already created.

In addition to this, supported content types can display a 'Gift' link allowing users to send user upgrades for pieces of content similar to Reddit Gold and gilded posts.

  • Integrates in to the default XenForo User Upgrade system allowing upgrades and downgrades to be handled by XF itself.
  • Integrates with XenForo's statistics system giving you a daily, weekly and monthly breakdown of gifts purchased.
  • Integrates with XenForo's criteria system allowing you to award trophies to users based on the amount of gifts they have given or received.
  • Integrates with XenForo's default content systems (profile posts, posts and users) to allow for your members to gift others directly from posted content. This can be easily extended to other add-ons and also allows for you to customize the appearance of gilded posts. Putting the 'Gift' button in easily accessible areas and minimizing the steps needed to purchase a gift is guaranteed to maximize revenue opportunities.
    • You may also enable content type gifting for guests through the permission system to fully maximise your revenue from this add-on.
  • Administrators can track upgrades that were gifted through the Active / Expired User Upgrades area.
  • Alert users when they receive a gift.
  • These alerts can indicate who sent the gift or optionally, the gifter can choose to remain anonymous.
  • Support for [bd] Paygates. Accept payments from processors other than PayPal, such as Stripe. Paygates is an optional extra and if it isn't installed, Gift Upgrades will fall back gracefully on stock PayPal. The attached screenshots show what the user will see with and without the Paygates add-on.
  1. Extract the contents of the .zip file provided upon successful purchase.
  2. Upload the contents of the 'UPLOAD' folder to your root XenForo directory.
  3. Install the provided .xml file through the XenForo Admin Control Panel.
  4. By default, all current user upgrades will be marked as giftable. This can be edited through the User Upgrades area.
This add-on has been in use at since the beginning of the year and replaced a previous iteration. Since this was installed, upgrade purchases have increased by three folds. If you would like to demo this add-on, you may do so there.

Big thanks to AzzidReign. :love:

Great stuff, highly used on our forums, especially during holiday season when users want to gift their friends and loved ones who also use the community. Thanks!
This add-on is a must-have! Our members love it and it helps keep our site online. We won't be upgrading to XF2 until this is ported over.
A highly useful extension to the user upgrades feature, allowing users to provide more than just a simple Like for great content
Excellent extension to the user upgrades feature. It respects all kind of user states (which upgrade can be given to whom and to disallow upgrades to banned members for example) and can be used to push selling user upgrades in your forum. Very responsive developer, who listens to his customers. Highly recommended.
Works well and my members like it. Thanks you Nix! It has done a great job at increasing memberships
Installed on 1.5.5.x and runs great. This is exactly what I needed. Only thing I will add is a "Gift a subscription to -username-" links on the member card and profile pages. Thanks!
Fanatic add-on, allowing users to gift other users I been looking for a good add-on to have on my forums, and this one is just fanatic.
With the latest 1.3.0 release and being able to add trophies, this add-on has been a tremendous improvement to the forum when gifting user upgrades. It easily integrates into the XenForo software and works perfectly.
Thank you!
Excellent add-on - gifting has always been a big headache for me to do manually, ever since the early days of VB. This add-on makes it insanely easy. Love the option to be anonymous or not, and the integration with alerts.

Too soon to say what effect this has on revenue, but I'll update the review when we have data :)
The best of its kind for gifting upgrades I've used to date. Fully XF integrated, which hasn't been done here before. Extremely impressed with this add ons integration and ease of use for my members. Thank you.
Thank you for your kind words. Glad to hear you're satisfied with my work.
