After paying for your gift card you will receive an e-mail confirming the purchase indicating that the payment is being processed. If the card is for you, you will receive another email with the gift card information (pin and number).

If you do not receive the number and pin of your purchased gift card, contact Shein's customer service center: they will review the case and solve it for you. Sometimes emails from Shein may arrive in the spam folder so please check your email properly before contacting customer support.

The only relevant limitation is that you can only buy cards for your own country. That is, if we buy a gift card in Shein US, it will only be valid to buy on this platform with shipping to the United States.

No, the Shein gift card works like a virtual card. If you don't spend it all in one purchase, you can use whatever balance you have left on your future purchases. You can check your balance through the Shein website or app.

What happens if my order costs more than the price of the card?

No problem, you can pay a part of your order with the balance of the gift card and the rest through the usual payment methods such as credit card or PayPal.

If you have bought something with a gift card and you are not convinced, don't worry. When you return it, the refund amount will be credited to your gift card and you will be able to use it for other purchases.

Shein gift cards have an expiration date, however, they are valid for 120 months. You can only check the expiration date if the card is in your name.

Beware of buying gift cards outside of Shein

Nowadays it is very easy to encounter fraudulent people through social media. We know that some people sell gift cards, saying that they are selling them because they have bought them by mistake or that they are not going to use them.

We do not recommend, under any circumstances, to buy them outside Shein because most of the time they are scams. As the transaction will not be under the control of the platform, they will not be able to help you if you have been scammed, so you're at a lot of risk.

Luckily, as you have already seen, buying gift cards through Shein is very easy and safe so don't risk it and buy them through their website.
