How do I redeem a digital gift card bought from PayPal Digital Gifts?
Please read the retailer’s terms and conditions to make sure the digital gift card you’re buying can be redeemed where you plan to use it. PayPal does not control how and where digital gift cards can be redeemed.
If your code can be used in-store, tell the cashier you’re paying with a gift card. The cashier will either scan or key in the code to redeem it. We recommend printing the code if you can, as barcode scanners in some stores can’t scan from a mobile screen.
Not all self-checkout lanes accept gift card codes so we recommend going to an attended counter.
If your code can be used online, look for a gift card or voucher code option at checkout on the seller’s website or app.
Gift cards can’t be stored in the PayPal Wallet and automatically redeemed right now. Make sure you enter the code when making a purchase to ensure your gift card is applied.
