Making Gift Certificates for in my ebay store
« on: September 03, 2012, 09:26:35 PM »
Is it allowed to make gift certificates for purchases made in my ebay store? I was told it's not and then I was told it's fine. Does anyone else have them? If you do how do you connect them with with paypal.
Hope for some insight here.
Thank you

It's been years since I've looked into selling gift certificates for my online stores
I decided not to because every state has different rules regarding them and how they can be used and what is suppose to be done if not used or money left on the card etc

Some states require unused funds to be sent in to unclaimed funds department
Some states require amounts less than $5 to be given back in cash
Some require no expiration dates and if you go out of business you own that money to the purchaser or the state

I decided it was too much for me to track and stay legal!
sock monkeys at and of course everything at

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift. That is why we call it the present!
