Here's what we found for "Redeeming an eBay gift card or gift certificate"

You can buy digital and physical gift cards on eBay. You can also buy physical gift cards at select retail stores. If you buy a physical gift card from eBay, we'll send it to an address of your choice.

Each gift card has a unique redemption code. With digital cards, the code is in the email you received. With physical cards, you'll need to scratch off the security coating from the back of the card to reveal the code.

You can apply the full amount or a portion of the gift card towards an item. At checkout, you'll need to enter the gift card's unique code and confirm your payment details. Any remaining balance is attached to your eBay account. To redeem the remaining balance, be sure you're using the eBay account that you used previously with the gift card, then enter your redemption code at checkout.

If you return an item you bought with an eBay gift card, the amount you used on the gift card will be refunded. You can then use the gift card redemption code again with the same eBay account.
