The whole world is getting closer to an amazing Christmas season. Just maybe, in turbulent 2020, buying gift cards and vouchers with new-gen payment methods is a smart bet.

Vouchers and gift cards: benefits

Typically, vouchers and gift cards represent a physical or digital document that provides its owner with the right to claim a certain amount of goods - either real-world (clothes, furniture, gifts and so on) or digital (Spotify content, Google Play applications, in-game tools).

Every voucher has its value (normally USD- or EUR-denominated), issuer data (name of shop, online game, service, etc) and validity term (in most cases, very long).

Vouchers and gift cards are widely adopted due to their unique consumer features: easy to buy/sell, easy to transfer and no chance of buying the wrong gift for everyone. That is why the coupon industry is expanding aggressively.

Online marketplace of vouchers: Introducing

Launched back in 2012, should be referred to as a reliable one-stop marketplace for buying and selling gift cards, service vouchers and coupons. It is fully regulated and incorporated in the EU in accordance with local laws.

Basics created an ecosystem that allows buyers and sellers of coupons, gift cards and vouchers to meet each other. The sellers can place their orders with zero fees after a one-click registration procedure.

The seller announces the name of the product, its price, the quantity of positions available and a bonus for positive feedback. In the “Discount” field, the system displays the delta between the name of the coupon and its purchasing value.

For instance, if a user of BuySellVouchers sells a $100 Google Play Card for $95 (a similar offer is displayed above), the discount is 5 percent. The potential buyers also see the nickname of the user, its reputation and its promotional status - whether the offer is promoted for an extra fee or not.


In terms of operations, BuySellVouchers acts as an escrow. Its four-step mechanism reliably protects both buyer and seller from cheating by a counterparty.

Once the buyer books a suitable offer, he/she sends money to escrow. The whole sum is locked for 36 hours. Therefore, he/she has 36 hours to check that the goods are delivered with no rush. If everything is okay, the system sends the money to the seller.
