Buy Gift Card with Bitcoin
A gift card is also known as a gift certificate or a gift voucher is a prepaid stored-value money card issued by a brand or retailer. It is to be used as an alternative to cash for purchases within a particular store. So for example, if you have a 25,000 NGN Jumia gift card, you can buy up to 25,000 NGN worth of products at Jumia store by redeeming the gift card instead of paying in cash or credit card.
Gift cards can be redeemed online on the retailer’s website and/or directly at the store. It depends on the retailer’s policy. Gift cards used online typically have a pin code to be inserted on the retailer’s e-commerce site. Gift cards to be used at the retailer’s store sometimes contain a barcode. You can generally print out the barcode or keep a copy of it on your phone and show it to the cashier when you pay.
One interesting thing you should know is that gift cards or vouchers are anonymous. So, as the name suggests, you can use them for your own purchases or give them as a gift. How cool is that? You can use Bitcoin to give a nice gift to a friend or loved one.
