Understanding gift cards

25 2 1

Hi Everyone,


So I understand the process of buying a gift card and that the customer can forward the email to the person they have gifted it to. But I'm concerned about security. So if anyone gets hold of the code that means they can essentially use it in the store even if it wasn't meant for them?


And what happens if I buy a £50 card and email it to my brother and he buys something for £10 (so has £40 left on the card) and someone else then tries using the code. Will they get to use the remaining £40 or has it been locked to my brother's account now he has used part of it?


Thanks for your help!
