Gift cards: Tap is not allowed.
You can use eBay gift cards to pay for all or part of your next purchase on the site. And they make a great gift if you are not sure if anyone would like it. However, finding out where you can buy them on eBay can be tricky.
To use an eBay gift card to pay for an item, simply enter the exit code.
How to use gift cards on eBay
So you got yourself a gift card. Now maybe you are wondering how to use it? The first thing you need to do is get the redemption code. Remove the back cover coat to expose the code to the portable card. With digital cards, eBay will send you a code by email.
Once you have found something you would like to buy, you can use that code to use the gift card for your purchase. When you are in the exit phase of purchasing an item, scroll down to the bottom of the page and enter the usage code in the gift card field and coupons.
Select Enter to see your new amount. Check the details to make sure the calculation is correct before selecting Confirm and pay. You can check your gift card balance here.
If you do not have enough money on your gift card to cover all the cost of the item, you can pay the remaining balance using another payment method, such as a credit card, Apple Pay, Google Pay, or PayPal. If there is a balance left after using it, the amount will remain on the card the next time you purchase an item on eBay.
