Gift Subscriptions

When a gift subscription is activated in OJS, and a gift subscription is purchased, the journal manager does not receive an email that a a gift subscription was purchased.

Is it possible for the journal manager to be notified when someone purchases a gift subscription?


Hi @newone,

What version of OJS are you using? Please include this in your posts.

Alec Smecher
Public Knowledge Project Team

OJS 2.4.8-1

A gift subscription was purchased, and no notification was sent to us by OJS.

The person that bought the gift subscriptions, and the person that received the gift did get an email.

The website did not get an email to notify us that a gift subscription was made.

Hi @newone,

That sounds like it may be a bug – I’ll have a look and follow-up shortly.


Thanks for looking into it.


Is there a fix for this bug?
