What to do if you’ve been targeted by a gift card scam
First of all, you need to be logged in to your eBay account to redeem your card.
Enter the redemption code in the gift cards, coupons, and eBay Bucks field near the bottom of the checkout page.
Any balance remaining will stay on the card for your next eBay purchase. Please note, it can take up to 4 hours for your eBay Gift Card to be activated.
