If you want to check your balance quickly, and you aren’t already on the website, you can use the balance checker at www.giftcards.ebay.com/balance.
You cannot use your card to buy other gift cards, gift cards from third parties, gift certificates, coupons, or any kind of currency including coins, paper money, or virtual currency available on eBay. You also can’t use it to purchase precious metals such as gold and silver in the form of ingots, bars, or coins.
To use a gift card, you cannot checkout as a guest. You have you sign up for an account in order to apply your gift card at the checkout, and we can show you how here in our free tutorial on how to create an eBay account.
This is due to sellers being able to accept your gift card as payment for the items you purchased, and how they are refunded. You can also check out this help article from PayPal to help you with your gift card purchases.
If you return an item on eBay, you will be refunded the total of your order, even if you used a gift card. The refund however, will be applied back to the same gift card, so you must use the money to purchase items listed by sellers on eBay.
