Some codes are cheap because they are unwanted ones so people sell cheap to trade for something else, so there is a thing called availability. This also means the code is from a bulk purchase, and that’s what I do as a gift card seller
Or this just means they are trying to scam you, they can post a $10 card and send a $5 one or they can just post a cheap region. All I do is just post the code correctly with no tricks
about the cheap region, Australian codes for example is cheap enough to sell as a USA code 10% OFF and still get a profit on it, there is like no verification and anyone can purchase any code and post on gameflip on the way they want.
fill a chargeback with bank, This is a way to get a redeemed code flagged as fraud. they just fool the bank and successfully fill a charge back. Some also flagged as stolen, seller have the purchase receipt and just fools the company telling the code was suddenly redeemed by someone else. This depends more on the company and support conduct
If the code is just flagged as suspicious, this means you can’t use for some reason (hm maybe you got a Australian code but you are from UK, so there is a foreign currency trying to be used to pay for your stuff) or they just doubt the code is yours
Account locked codes should be forbidden on gameflip just to avoid unnecessary disputes, all this can be fixed with seller itself talking to Amazon support, poor communication and lies between seller and buyer may lead into gameflip’s decision on dispute resolution, even if seller evidences is good enough
Gift card balances that hold the balance on the gift card instead of just redeeming and adding credits to a account is forbidden, since seller can also spend it before the buyer
If nothing is said on the listing description (visible to everyone before purchase) regarding account lock, where is the cash after redeemption and even the redeem instructions, meaning the buyer/costumer is unaware about all this, it also leads on gameflip’s decision to refund you
It’s basically how the cheap codes work on gameflip, can be bad for seller reputation
The best you can do (regarding purchasing cheap cards) is use a gameflip promocode on checkout so gameflip that gives you the discount instead of the seller, they ranges from 10% to 50% off. There is new codes like twice a week, they just have a use/redeem limit so they will last for like a few hours until people use it all
There is some more things to pay, like gameflip fees to sell and withdraw, some bank fees to receive the gameflip’s international money transfer and send large money amount to bulk purchases, and then some government taxes like the income one. I’m being able to purchase a card for $3.11 and then selling for $3.94 and it can’t go too far than this, since I still have to pay gameflip fees, bank fees and government taxes, there is a limit on how cheap it can get.
prices can still be cheap on sellers comparison, I can get a 500 ars Argentina code for $4.70 and sell for $5.90 while some sellers sell it for $10.
