The partnership will enable eBay to provide end-to-end gift card services to other businesses while accelerating its growth in the loyalty and incentives market.

  • Both plastic and egift options, and the ability to personalize messaging on each card
  • The ability for businesses to place and seamlessly manage their own orders
  • The ability to load a selected denomination from $5 to $500 per card
  • Visibility into tracking information and order history
  • Easy checkout with payment and shipping information that is securely saved to the buyer's account for future orders
