Hi all. I'm seeing some people sell gift cards in the Digital goods subforum. Some leave contact information directly in the thread; some sell on a third party website and leave links in the thread.

I'm considering selling a $200 gift card. What's the more appropriate way to do it?

Wether you want buy or sell , you just need to make deals in this forum through PM option because if a person will make scam with or you will make spam then it may be possible that this forum can't help you ( to give negetive trust).
Here I will suggest you to make buy/sell gift cards of any amount but you need to do everything in legit way .
If you have doubt in a deal during going first then it is much better for you to have a escrow member . Second thing you should care that avoid your deals with those person who got negetive Trust ( but first of all try to see the trust negetive reason for which reason he got ).

@noictib,

Thanks. I guess I will have to start a new thread at that subforum and then let interested members PM me. And then I ask an escrow member to help me with the deal.

Even if you want to use this forum enitrely I think it's a very risky thing to go ahead and put yourself out to, as you don't have much help unless you use escrow and even there you could just be incuring fees that just aren't worth it.

I'd recommend using a site like Paxful (Used it for years as a seller of bitcoins, it's a wonderful experience) or Local Bitcoins as both of them work wonderfull and have a built in escrow that only charges the sellers and not the buyers.

Good luck and let us know how it goes.

Thanks for letting me know Paxful; Local Bitcoins doesn't seem to be offering services of gift card trade. And I'm a seller.

Yeah, I definitely recommend using a site such as Paxful or similar that handles the escrowing for you. If you do decide to do a sale on the forums, you'll want to ensure you have a trustworthy escrow to avoid scams.

Is there a place for me to find escrow members on this forum?

This is the most up-to-date list that I can find: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2439910.0

Also, given the nature of gift cards... you'll likely find that you end up having to sell for below the cards face value. Do not be surprised if you struggle to get more than 70-80% of the cards value. If you're attempting to sell, price your card reasonably and then insist that the buyer uses escrow or sends first. That will likely get rid of 99% of scammers.


In addition to Paxful, you might want to check out Bitify... (NOTE: I've not used either service, so cannot comment on quality of service or reliability etc)
