Using an e-gift card is just as easy as plastic – but more convenient!
If you'd like to use an e-gift card in person, just pull it up in your email (on your phone or in a printout) or in UGO Wallet and ask the merchant to scan the barcode. If the merchant can't scan the barcode, it could be that their point of sale system doesn't use the latest technology. Just ask them to enter the card number manually.
If you're shopping online, just enter the number and PIN, where one exists, in the gift card field.
