A new post from the Daum team has shown up on the Black Desert Online forum to inform players that the gifting option from the Cash Shop has been shut down. According to the post, this was done "due to abuse and credit card fraud by third parties (gold sellers and others)". The post further indicates that those who have been flagged as taking part will be 'sanctioned accordingly'.
At this time, there is no ETA on when the gifting option will be turned back on.
