What makes Flipkart EGVs so exciting?
In a nutshell, EGVs or Flipkart Gift Cards are similar to vouchers that you redeem at a store. For instance, if you have won a gift card worth ₹500, you can shop worth ₹500 and use Flipkart EGVs to pay.
A Flipkart Gift Card is a prepaid store of value account that can be used to purchase products across Flipkart. You could choose to use it as a Gifting option on special occasions or as a token of love and appreciation.
Moreover, if you wish to do so, you can use it as a payment instrument like a wallet for quick and easy check-out.
