What Will a Recipient Receive When I Send Them a Virtual Gift Card?

When you order a virtual gift card for somebody, you’ll want to know what the recipient actually gets. Here’s what your family, friends, or business clients can expect:

  1. First, the recipient will get an email to notify them that they’ve received a virtual gift card. It will also tell them how to claim it so it can be used.
  2. When the recipient claims the virtual gift card, they can activate and register it. To do this, they will typically need to enter their name and address.
  3. Finally, after registering, the recipient gets their virtual gift card number. They will get an activation code, along with an expiration date.
  4. At this point, they can use their card to make a transaction and purchase something of their choice.
