Exactly what the title says.

Indirectly so, by simply giving that user a GG gift make the purchase.

Yeah, you can click the coin beneath their avatar, or you can do it via their profile in the 'geekstuff' tab.

That's exactly what I'm trying to avoid.

I'm pretty sure I've read that by design you cannot do so (e.g. to avoid someone pranking/annoying/trolling someone else, e.g. by giving them an inappropriate microbadge). But I am not certain.

In any case, I've never heard of any way to do it in the BGG user interface.

Ok, thanks for the answer.

If you can wait for a bit, usually somewhere around Christmas/New Year we get some microbadge tokens as a gift from BGG. You can give your token to someone else to use (although you can't control what microbadge they buy with it).
