Generally, gift cards are like recharge cards/airtime, if you remember the conventional recharge cards we had to scratch to reveal the pin (not sure they still exist that way).
Several brands provide gift cards as an alternative payment means. For instance, if I want to buy something on amazon website and I only have cash, I can proceed to any physical store and buy amazon gift card with cash, then, in turn, buy whatever on amazon website with such gift card.
FORMS OF GIFT CARDS
- Physical gift cards: These are actual physical (plastic) cards that are purchased directly from a physical store. Physical gift cards are safest and the selling price is the best.
- Ecodes: These are digital gift card codes purchased online and mostly sent to the buyer’s email address. For instance, buying airtime online and they email you the pin.
Ecodes are not as safe as physical gift cards thereby the selling price is always lower
They are similar because they work the same way as they are all valid gift cards of respective providers. But they differ in money return and safety.
GIFT CARD CURRENCIES
There are brands that are present in multiple countries, so they have gift cards in various currencies.
For instance, iTunes gift cards can come in USD, GBP, EUR e.t.c They all have different selling prices.
WHAT PEOPLE USE GIFT CARDS FOR
Different brands provide gift cards specifically to be used to make purchases on their websites/stores.
So if anyone is buying Walmart gift card, they can only use it for one purpose, to make a purchase on Walmart website or at any Walmart physical store.
Same applies to every other gift card.
