If you’ve played the many Flipkart contests and won or if a loved one has been feeling a little too generous, you probably have a Flipkart Electronic Gift Voucher (or two!) to spend. Wondering how to redeem it? Here’s everything you need to know about using Flipkart EGVs.
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.
Winner takes all — how you can use Flipkart Gift Cards
If you’re holding on to your Flipkart EGVs wondering how you can put them to good use, it’s simple. All you have to do is log on to Flipkart, select the items you want to buy and add them to your cart. Then, click on ‘Proceed to Pay’, as you usually would. Instead of selecting Cash on Delivery or Net Banking as your payment option, click on ‘Pay by Gift Card’. Flipkart EGVs carry a 16-digit card number, just like your debit/credit card, and a 6-digit pin. You’ll find both these numbers in an email with the EGV details. Simply enter them to pay for your order.
If your total exceeds the Flipkart EGVs value, simply pay the balance via a payment method of your choice. It’s as easy as that.
