The retailer wasn’t sure how to process my One4all Gift Card.

My card didn’t work when I tried to spend it in-store.

My One4all Gift Card has a zero balance.
The One4all Gift Card is a prepaid card which means that money must be loaded onto the card at the time of purchase. Once 24 hours have elapsed from the date of purchase, your balance will be available to spend.
Why do I need to know my balance?

If they attempt to process the One4all Gift Card for more than the balance on the card then the transaction will be rejected.
