- How does the Gift Card work?
The Telford Centre Gift Card is a Prepaid MasterCard. When purchased, like a standard gift card, the value requested is placed onto the card ready for use by the recipient. Unlike bank issued credit cards, you can only spend the total value loaded onto the card - you cannot go over your limit therefore it is important to be aware of the total balance available on your card before making any purchases.
When making a purchase at a participating store, please ensure you are aware of the balance on the card as any additional amounts to pay may need to be made before using the card. Please notify the cashier the current balance of the card prior to the transaction to allow them to make the correct value transactions at time of payment and prevent any delays making your purchase.
The transaction will be placed as a credit card payment and will use the card machine swipe function to process. When the transaction begins, the card machine and your receipt will confirm as a MasterCard payment. You will then be required to sign the receipt to complete the purchase - please ensure you have signed your card prior to use to authorise the card as this will also be the reference signature for the cashier.
