You can sell your gift card on the marketplace in just a few easy steps:
Raise Member Services verifies every seller and approves each gift card on our marketplace.
We accept gift cards from any brand, retailer, or restaurant. You can sell physical gift cards and merchandise credit with a minimum balance of $20, and you can sell eGift cards with a minimum balance of $10 on the card. The cards may be partially used and do not need to have an even balance.
Depending on the brand, gift cards sell the fastest when discounted at least 5%, but the selling price is completely up to you. Please note, your listing price must be equal to or less than the current value of the card. When setting your price, please keep our selling fees in mind.
Yes, you can adjust the price at any time. The price you set is only final when the card is purchased, at which point the selling price is locked.
When a gift card is listed for sale, Raise will determine whether or not the store can convert your physical gift card into an eGift card. If the retailer allows online redemption, you are given the option to list your card electronically. Once your eGift card has sold, it will be delivered electronically to the buyer’s Raise Account.
After your gift card sells, we will deduct a 15% commission from the selling price. For physical gift cards, the greater of 1% or $1.00 will be deducted from the balance. Electronic gift cards have no additional fees.
You are only charged these selling fees when your gift card sells. If your gift card does not sell, you will not be charged.
When your physical card sells, all you have to do is download and generate the prepaid shipping label provided by Raise within your account. All physical cards are shipped using the United States Postal Service.
Your available balance is the amount of funds ready for immediate payout. In the Available Funds section of your Raise Account, choose the amount you wish to withdraw. You may withdraw the entire amount or a portion of your available funds, but there is a $5.00 minimum withdrawal required for PayPal payment options.
You are held responsible for the full value of the gift card you have listed. While your gift card is listed on Raise, do not use, sell, or transfer your gift card’s value. You will be held liable for the transaction. If you no longer want to sell your gift card, simple remove the listing on your Listings page or be held responsible for the card’s full value.
Buying gift cards is like other online marketplaces. Sellers list their cards at a discounted price, and users purchase them at discounted prices.
Sellers can adjust the sale price as often as they’d like, so you may notice different prices at different times.
If you are a first time buyer and/or if your order total is above a predetermined threshold, you may receive a phone call or email from Raise Member Services to verify your order information. We take these precautions to ensure a secure marketplace and to protect our members’ transactions.
We do not charge sales tax, shipping costs, or processing fees. The total price you see is what you will pay for the card.
New customers can expect an order confirmation time of up to 24 hours. If you are a returning customer, confirmation is instant.
After submitting an order, you may not request to cancel it. We guarantee your gift card is valid and has the value shown at the point of sale. After your purchase has been confirmed, please review our return policy to see if your order is eligible for a refund. For all refund requests in accordance with our policy, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your order information.
Raise Rewards is the Raise.com referral program. The more friends you invite, the more potential points you can earn towards future gift card purchases. Within the initial invitation, a $5 off promo code is given as incentive to the referee, and the referrer gets 500 points when their friend makes their first purchase over $125. Please note, the referee's order total must be greater than $125 after applying the $5 off promo code for the referrer to earn 500 points.
Visit Referrals in your Raise Account to begin sending invitations with your unique link or via email. For you to earn points, your friends must create a Raise account from the link you sent them, and they have 30 days from the first time they click your unique link to make a qualifying purchase.
During the checkout process, you will see a slider above the button labeled “Proceed to Checkout.” Simply click and drag the slider to redeem your desired amount of points. You can use a portion or all of your Raise Rewards on any gift card order, or you may save them for future purchases.
As the referrer, you may send out an unlimited number of invitations, but the first ten friends to make a purchase over $125 within this one-month time period will count toward your point accumulation. The invitees have 30 days from the first time they click your unique URL to make a qualifying purchase. During checkout, Raise Rewards cannot be used in combination with promo codes or any other promotional offer. Points expire six months after the date they are earned.
While physical gift cards can be used to shop in brick and mortar store locations, retailers offer eGift cards for online shopping. As a convenient alternative to physical gift cards, they can be redeemed on the retailer’s website using the provided serial number and PIN. Depending on the brand, many eGift cards can also be printed to use in stores. Physical gift cards have a slightly higher listing fee and sellers must ship physical gift cards to the buyer. eGift cards have a lower listing fee and are delivered electronically to the buyer's Raise Account online.
Per the CARD Act of 2009, gift cards cannot expire within five years of the purchase date, but after 12 months without use, an inactivity fee is applied.
At this time, we do not support inernational transactions. We are focusing on revolutionizing the gift card industry one step at a time.
