Common Problems

My friend is in the US and I am in Europe, I was wondering if I can buy gifts cross region

You can buy gifts for friends who play in another region. 

To gift something, select the product in the Shop and click Gift instead of Buy Now. On the next screen, you can choose to enter your friend's BattleTag or email address.


  • Some products can only be gifted to BattleTag friends and don’t give you the option to enter your friend's email address.
  • Gifting may be restricted for some products. If you don’t see the Gift button, you can Gift Balance instead.
  • Gifting may be restricted for some payment methods.
  • Gifting may be restricted for some currencies.
  • Some currencies are only allowed to gift products to friends who use the same currency. For example, if your currency is Peso, you cannot buy a gift for someone who uses Dollars, but you can for a friend who uses Peso like you.
  • It is not possible to gift products across platforms. For example, you cannot buy a gift in the Shop for a friend who plays on console. Similarly, if you play on console, you can only gift through your console's store (Xbox, PSN, Nintendo) to friends who play on your same platform.


  • It is not possible to gift a WoW subscription, but you can gift game time instead.
  • WoW expansions and game time are regional. When you gift a WoW expansion or WoW game time, you must use the regional Shop that matches your friend's region. For example, if your friend plays WoW in Europe, you must use the European Shop. This will create a European code that your friend can claim.
  • You cannot use Balance to buy a WoW expansion or WoW game time for a friend on another region. 
To switch your Shop region, scroll down and click the globe icon to expand the region selection menu.
