eGift FAQ


    Is it possible to transfer your balance from an eGift onto a physical card?

    An Ackroo Administrator can transfer the balance. Also, cardholders can register both cards online and transfer balances from egift to physical card from the cardholder portal at (will redirect to merchant's cardholder portal).


    If the recipient comes in to spend their eGift in-store but they don’t spend the whole amount, will they be given a physical card with the balance owing or will they need to hang onto their email until the eGift is spent?

    In store managers could do a redeem on eGift for the amount followed by a fund on the physical card as a balance transfer operation in store. Alternatively, cardholders are encouraged to register both cards and transfer the remaining balance from their eGift onto their physical card.
