eBay is an online marketplace where you can find just about anything, and gift cards are no exception. Many gift card recipients use the site to sell cards they don't want or won't use for discounted prices. If you're thinking about buying a gift card on eBay, consider these basic guidelines.
Do not buy from sellers who post the gift card account number. This information can be used to drain the card's balance before you ever receive it.
Only buy from reputable sellers. Read through user reviews and see what others have experienced. Typically any seller rated above 90 is reliable, but watch out for repeat issues.
eBay doesn't allow the sale of gift cards over £500, so it's generally best to avoid any cards you see over this amount.
Look for sellers offering payment via PayPal. This provides a secure way to complete the transaction without providing the seller with any personal information.
If for some reason there is an issue with your card, contact the seller first. If you can't resolve the issue directly, use the eBay Resolution Centre.
