Selling Gift Cards on eBay?

Bronze Post Medal for All Time! 109 Posts

I have about 10 gift cards that I am going to be selling on eBay. I have the value of each card and I will list that in the auction. How do I know that the person who buys it from me wouldn't come back and say that the amount stated in the auction is different on the card. In other words, they could easily say I gave them the wrong amount.

It would be a bit of trouble (but worth it to avoid trouble), but you can go to each of the gift card 'stores or shops' and get a print-out of what is on the card. Make them a copy and mail with the card and keep a copy (you keep original.) Also keep your receipts for mailing, a good many buyers claim "never got it". (I have sold on ebay many years.)

Most of the stores have websites or 800 numbers that you can go to or call to access the amount left on your gift cards. It will take a little time, but it will be well worth it. Good luck!

Why dont you give them as gifts to friends or to senior citizens. I mean lots of senior citizens live on a strict budget and would probably like to get a card to use somewhere. You could also volunteer to take them to that store.


I am like you people could say you said there was more on it, personally I would not go to all that trouble for gift cards especially when there are people around you that could use it. Ask around!

A few of the suggestions I also had. You can't expect alot from ebay buyers. Maybe 75% at best. As suggested, use them as gifts. Donate to a silent auction for charity. Get tax credit.

Instead of gifts for long distanced relatives, I do gift cards that are good in their area. For kids, I ask parents if such and such is good. All kids like their own fast food card I have found. Easter bunnies and Halloween ghosts sending them in the grandchildren have not figured that out yet.
