from my understanding email gifts will be phased out - so how the stores send you the code ?

If you buy a gift on Steam it doesn't give you the code, you either send it automatically or it becomes an item in your inventory, so Key sites are buying the codes from somewhere outside Steam. Sometimes they buy up physical copies and then get the key that way.
