I want to send something to someone but all I have is their pen name and no email address. How can I send a GC as a surprise to that person?

You need a email address to send a gift or see if they have a public wishlist and send something off that.

They have a public wish list for gift cards but it changes named when I click on it so I am not sure of it is her or not and there is no email address. So do I enter her real name that comes up? She really needs a gift card.

That is the purpose of a wishlist so people can send you gifts without you having to give out personal information such as email or address, that information stays hidden.

So how do I do it then? just leave the email part blank and enter the name that comes up on the wish list and the amount of the GC? or do I enter her nickname she uses to post?

Is it still asking for an email address? If so then guess you cannot send a gift card without email. I have sent physical items from a wishlist and it auto entered all the delivery information I just had to check out and enter my information for payment and all that.

I would call Amazon customer service and see what they say.

No you misunderstood my question. I didn't try it again. I was asking do I just leave the email space blank. Which name do I enter? The Nickname or the real name?

If their wishlist is hidden, there isn't much you can do. From the wish list there is a give as gift option, and no email is needed. Good luck!
