The days of in-store gift cards are over. The online version is faster, more precise, and ditches the plastic.
Ever been given a terrible gift card that you just didn’t want? Have you ever found yourself strolling to the store that you hate just because a well-meaning relative sent you a certificate for free goods there? Did you know that you no longer need to do any of the above?
GiftCardsToNaira and Online Trading
GiftCardsToNaira is an online firm that specializes in trading gift certificates for Naira. They operate in Nigeria and Ghana now, but they have plans for expansion in the coming years. We can expect to see them trading across other areas of Africa soon.
As well as Naira, their nifty app lets you exchange your unwanted gift cards for Bitcoin and Ethereum, two highly sought-after currencies in the modern world. They have a gift card rate calculator for those interested in trading in their certificates for money they can spend in other places here.
Gift Card Trading Makes Sense
When you stop to think about selling on your old gift cards, you wonder why nobody has thought to do it sooner. There are hundreds of people out there who would love to have a discount on the same stores you are desperate to be rid of.
An online platform that allows you to connect with those willing to buy these cards is a simple – yet effective – concept. Other countries have been quick to follow suit, with gift card trading now available across Europe, Asia, and America… But how does it all work?
How does gift card trading work?
When you go to GiftCardsToNaira for the first time and try to sell, you will be invited to create an account. Once you have done so and the account has been verified, you will be asked to input your gift card details. Some of these details include the place it is for, the amount it is for, and any present ID numbers.
Once you have inputted the information, the site will receive and calculate your price. When they work it out, they will make you an offer for your gift card. It may be that they need to find someone to buy it, it may be that your gift card is rare, and other factors can also affect its value.
Once you have the offer, you can choose to accept or decline. If you go through with the deal, the money should appear in your GiftCardsToNaira account, ready for you to withdraw it.
The Future of Unwanted Gifts
Online platforms like this will change the way we see gift-giving in the future. If we can give gift vouchers that can be exchanged, it means we might never give a poorly received gift again. All we must do is admit that sometimes we get gifts wrong. The rest will take care of itself.
