What are add-on tests?
Add ons are tests that you have not taken yet. Depending on which tests you have taken, the following are possible add-on tests that could be listed on your Add ons & Upgrades page:
Family Ancestry (Automsomal DNA)
Paternal Ancestry (Y-DNA)
Maternal Ancstry (mtDNA)
Additional Tests (e.g., Factoids and additional mtDNA and Y-DNA tests)
Transfers (e.g., Y-DNA and autosomal DNA transfers)
What are upgrades?
If you tested at a lower level test, e.g., Y-25, Upgrades are higher-level tests that are offered to customers who have tested at a lower level test. For example, if you ordered a Y-37 test, you will have the option to upgrade to a Y-67, Y-111, or Big Y 700 test.
Do I need to swab again if I add a test or upgrade?
Can I buy an add on or upgrade for someone else?
Yes. If the other person has an existing kit, you will need to sign in directly to their kit to purchase an add on or upgrade.* If the person does not already have a kit with FamilyTreeDNA, you will need to place a new order.
*If you accidentally place a "new" order for someone who already has an existing kit, please contact us as soon as possible so that we can fix the order.
