    I've bought and sold on SF many many times, but never gift cards. How do most people construct the deal? Down payment, balance upon successful purchase?

    Same way every other deal is made.

    I have purchased and sold multiple cards on SF without a hitch. Like the above member mentioned, its just like any other transaction; money is paid up front. When I purchase a card, I request that the seller both mail the card and email/pm me the card number upon receipt of payment. This way you can verify the card balance immediately after payment. Also allows you to use the card immediately...[​IMG]

    +this ... bought 3 cards so far. i guess this is a bit more risky since they could take the money and use the gift card balance or give you bogus number but i like to believe peeps on SF are trustworthy

    no probs yet. i would always encourage peeps to check feedback and post count before buying ANYTHING though. those that post a lot SHOULD be safer bets [​IMG]

    also I am pretty sure if you filed a complaint on pay pal about it they would side with the buyer

    Thanks all for the comments. I guess I did not think it all the way through. But it makes sense that it is just as any other transaction. I guess the thought of purchasing some "numbers" from a card instead of a tangible object seemed different, but clearly the transaction operates in much the same manner.

    anybody happen to have any south coast plaza gift certificates or credit? i guess it wouldnt hurt to ask.

    you buy these from the concierge and good for any store in there.

    maybe a chinese/taiwanese tourist nearing his vacation/business trip return date, and desperately wanting to part with it?[​IMG] [​IMG]
