For all 2019 QCs who qualified for a gift, The Viki Community Team is happy to let you know that gifts are coming super soon!
Within the next week, 2019 QCs will receive an email or PM with their QC gift info. Gifts will be a little different this year, so we’d like to share more details below.
For the 2019 QC Gift, we’ll be sending digital gift cards to most QCs, and physical gifts sent to users in countries where we’re unable to send digital gift cards.
Why the change to digital gifts? The community has continued to grow every year, so we wanted to find a better way to reward everyone while making sure that everyone gets their gift! Shipping to different countries (almost 100!) has become increasingly difficult for our small team, with even more concerns about proper delivery. This became even more important to us in 2020 because of COVID-19 and to ensure everyone receives their gift safely, and to avoid worldwide delivery issues. Digital gifts mean that instead of the costs going towards shipping, it goes towards the gift itself, and directly back to you. Moving forward, it only makes sense for us to shift to digital rewards as our community continues to grow!
This has also meant it’s taken us considerably more time to figure out this year’s gift, and we’re really grateful for your patience. We wanted to find a digital gift company that was available to as many countries as possible. Please note that due to legal restrictions, there are some countries we are unable to send gift cards to. Users in those countries will receive a physical gift instead.

We will use your address info only to mail your gift, and only as reference in case you contact us with questions about it.
