Wer funktioniert der Kauf CGift Geschenkkarten?

    Zum Start: Erwerbe eine Karte von einem unserer Partner.

  • Wähle Deinen gewünschten Kartenwert aus, trage Deine persönlichen Bestelldaten ein und wähle die gewünschte Zahlungsmethode im obigen Formular aus;
  • Follow the steps to complete payment. For bank transfer methods (SEPA and international), initiate a transfer yourself at your bank, e.g., via online banking. The partner will provide you all necessary details (IBAN/account number, BIC/bank code/sort code and reference) once you complete the order. For the other methods, just follow the payment provider's instructions;
  • To prevent fraud the partner will usually need to verify your identity. You will receive an email after successful payment;
  • Nach der erfolgreichen Legitimationsprüfung erhältst du deine Kartennummer und PIN per E-Mail, und schon geht es los!

    Then, to obtain your cryptocurrencies, go to redeem and enter your details, wallet address, and gift card PIN. You will receive your cryptocurrencies in your wallet within 1 hour after redeeming! Please be aware that the partners will usually perform a compliance check of redemptions. As such, the process may take longer than the predicted time.

Wie lange dauert die Zahlung?
For SEPA payments, it should take 1-2 business days for the money to reach the bank account of one of our partners. International transfers may take longer depending on the location. For Online Bank Transfer (OBT) payments, the partner will need to wait until he receives the money in his account, as some banks do not process payments to bitcoin companies. Typically, this should take 1-2 business days.
Warum muss ich mich legitimieren?
All our partners are committed to creating a safe environment for their customers. Fraud checks and identity verification procedures are carried out by the partner on each order to minimise negative impact from fraud, money laundering or identity theft for their customers.

Ich habe keine E-Mail zum Einlösen meiner Geschenkkarte erhalten - was soll ich tun?
Have you received the email with the payment confirmation and invoice? If you have not received the email, please contact the partner directly. CGift does not offer any support as we are only providing technology solutions.
Meine Geschenkkarte funktioniert nicht. Was soll ich tun?
Hast Du die Geschenkkarte aktiviert? Wenn Du die Aktivierungs-E-Mail mit Deinen Kartendaten nicht finden kannst oder wenn Du die Geschenkkarten bereits aktiviert hast und immer noch Probleme beim Einlösen hast, wende Dich bitte unter Angabe Deiner Rechnungsnummer direkt an unsere Partner. Unsere Geschäftspartner werden die Angelegenheit prüfen und bearbeiten.
Ich kann die E-Mail zur Aktivierung meiner Geschenkkarte nicht finden. Könnt ihr mir helfen?
Please send your invoice number to out partner directly. They will handle it and might need to send you another email with the activation details
Welche Wechselkurse verwendet CGift und wie wird sie berechnet?
As the reference rates, our solution uses the exchange rate as provided by our partner crypto exchanges. For the redemption rate, the partner my add a mark up to the reference rate to cover cost and risk. The redemption rate is displayed when you redeem your gift card and will be fixed at the time of redemption. For example, if you keep your gift card for 1 year until you redeem, you will receive the redemption rate at that day and time.
Soll ich meine Geschenkkarte behalten und auf einen besseren Wechselkurs warten oder schnell einlösen?
We generally would advise to redeem your gift cards quickly. If you are buying for yourself, redeeming quickly means you will hold the actual bitcoins and will lock in the exchange rate. If you use CGift gift cards as a gift, we suggest to recommend to the recipient to redeem the gift card quickly, as they should become active users and participants in the crypto ecosystem. Also, gift cards may expire after few years (subject to the terms & conditions of the partner), which you can avoid by redeeming fast.

CGift Geschenkkarten sind ab dem Tag des Kaufs einige Jahre lang gültig. Die genauen Einzelheiten sind in den Geschäftsbedingungen der einzelnen Geschäftspartner geregelt.
Welches Material wird für physische CGift Geschenkkarten verwendet?
Die Geschenkkarten sind typische Plastikkarten, die in Größe und Form Kreditkarten ähneln.
Wie lange dauert der Versand in mein Land?
Depending of the location of the partner / entity you have bought the card from, it should take max. 2-7 days in Europe for you to receive your items after payment. Shipping to other countries may take longer.
Was passiert, wenn ein Paket mit meinen Geschenkkarten verloren geht oder gestohlen wird? Werde ich mein Geld verlieren?
Your money is safe – the partner usually ship all gift cards in an inactive state to prevent any damage from gift cards getting lost or stolen. Once you receive the gift cards in the mail, you will need to activate them by clicking on a button in the shipping confirmation e-mail. If gift cards get lost, the card can be set to an invalid state. The partner may issue new ones. Please contact the partner directly if you have any trouble receiving or activating your vouchers – he will make sure everything works out!

Kann ich eine gekaufte Geschenkkarte zurückgeben oder eine Rückerstattung erhalten?
