There are three kinds of gift card products: virtual gift cards sent by email, physical gift cards, which can be shipped to the recipient, and a combination of the two. Each gift card has a unique code, which can be redeemed by only one customer during checkout. A code pool must be established before gift cards can be sold.
A virtual gift card is sent to the recipient by email. The order requires an email address for the recipient. A shipping address is not necessary.
A physical gift card is shipped to recipient’s address, which is required during the purchase of the gift card.
The gift card is shipped and emailed to the recipient. The recipient’s email and shipping address is required to purchase the gift card.
