eBay Gift Cards Usage now Limited to $1,000 per Month?
I’ve been hearing an uptick in reports of eBay giving error messages when attempting to pay with an eBay gift card. The message states that you’ve used too many gift cards recently, try back in a few days.
A couple of readers reached out that they’ve heard from various eBay account reps that there’s a new $1,000 cap on eBay gift card usage per calendar month, down from the previous limit of $5,000 per month. The odd thing is that the $5k limit is still showing in the eBay T&C, and historically they’ve always updated that page when a change was made.
It might be a temporary thing or it may depend on other risk factors as to how many gift cards they’ll allow. Let us know your experiences in the comments.
