If you want to buy a digital gift card on Steam, then you need to have a Steam account. Additionally, you are not buying a digital code, but are actually buying Steam funds, thereby effectively giving money as a gift.

Yes, using a Visa Gift Card on Steam is definitely possible and easy to do. Simply select Visa as payment method, fill in the payment details as well as your current address. That’s it!
