Buying a Stockpile e-gift is as easy as buying a book at Amazon!  Just choose the stock and dollar amount you want to give (say, $50 of Apple stock), tell us who the recipient is, and pay for your purchase using your credit or debit card.

Your recipient will receive the gift card a few minutes later, and get their stock by clicking on a button in the email and logging into or signing up for a free Stockpile account.  Fractional shares of real Apple stock (worth $50 the day the gift card is redeemed) show up in the account and go up and down with the market starting the next trading day.
