eBay gift cards can no longer be used to purchase coins on eBay
« on: September 02, 2016, 08:51:49 AM »
I had some rewards points that I could use to get gift cards from a variety of vendors.  I chose to redeem those points for eBay gift cards.  I then purchased a coin on eBay.  When I typed in the gift card code, I got an error message.  When I called the ebay customer service number, they said they have recently changed their policy so that gift cards can no longer be used to purchase coins on eBay.  I was not happy, as coins are pretty much the only thing I buy on eBay, and I would not have gotten the eBay gift cards if they had been clear that the gift card had such restrictions.

Keep that in mind if you are considering eBay gift cards for coins.

If it was a specific coin then maybe you could ask the vendor to list in in a different category?
