    Hi – I would like to send an e-voucher as a christmas present to a friend in Spain. I am in the UK. Will they be able to use it in Spain?

      Hi Janet,

      Thanks for getting in touch with finder. I hope all is well with you. :)

      Amazon e-vouchers purchased in Amazon.com.uk can only be used in Amazon.com.uk. For this reason, yes, you can still send the e-voucher to your friend in Spain but they can only use it on Amazon.com.uk.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      Have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Joshua

      Hi Loopy,

      Thank you for leaving a question.
      If you are checking on a voucher – vouchers can be used only in the region where it was purchased but if you want to send or give your sister a gift card here are the steps to re-create

      You can purchase an Amazon gift card via Amazon.
      Visit Amazon and sign into your account. If you do not have an Amazon account yet, registration is free and only takes a few minutes to set up.
      Once inside your account, click the ‘Gift Card’ link from the top of the menu list to access the gift card store.
      Decide on the format of gift card you want to purchase. Amazon gift cards are available in three formats: electronic, printable, and mailable. They can therefore be delivered via email or Facebook, for printing at home, or via post to your recipient in a card or gift box. Note: Physical gift cards and gift boxes can only be sent to US addresses. Alternatively, all electronic versions can be sent to any email address worldwide. Select your delivery method to proceed.
      Now, select your type of gift card. On the next screen, select your design and occasion. You can personalize your gift card by adding a photo and/or a personalized message. You can also customize it to reflect the celebration, such as a birthday or wedding.
      Enter your gift card value (it can be any amount between $0.15 and $2,000) and fill in the rest of the required information, such as recipient’s name, email addresses, or mailing address. When you’ve filled out all the required fields, click ‘purchase’.
      Select a payment method, enter your payment details and authorize the transaction. That’s it, you have now purchased an Amazon gift card.

      Hope this helps.

      Regards,
      Val

    Can I purchase a Kindle voucher from UK Amazon to be redeemed in Australia Amazon?

      Hi Stephanie,

      Thanks for your question.

      Amazon vouchers are tied to a specific region. This means that if you purchase the voucher in UK Amazon, you cannot use it outside the UK Amazon website.

      I hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Anndy
