There has been a running thread on forums about the particular issue from the unfortunate customer of SHEIN.

We are going to address this issue and give you multiple ways how to solve it.

Does SHEIN accept Visa Gift Cards?

Quick Answer: Yes, SHEIN accepts Visa gift cards on its website. Moreover, SHEIN accepts gift cards from all popular service providers like Mastercard, Discover, American Express, etc.


If you have purchased the gift card from SHEIN’s US site you can only redeem it on the US site on any platform.

The verification process of a gift card usually takes up to 1 to 7 business days depending upon the type of payment method you have chosen to ensure that it is safe and secured.

You can only use your redeemed gift card for purchasing products and services from SHEIN and cannot be withdrawn as cash.

Once you have redeemed the gift card, there is no option for returning it. However, when you purchase a product from the site using a gift card and return it, you will be refunded a gift card. And, each gift card that you purchase is valid for 120 months. After its validity, you cannot redeem it.

Why is SHEIN not accepting my Visa Gift Card

There are several reasons why SHEIN won’t accept your visa card at the time of checkout. We will be discussing all of them here. If you are already aware of the reasons you can check the guide to FIX: SHEIN not accepting my Gift Card.

1. You have purchased the gift card from another location

As mentioned earlier, it might be because you are purchasing your products from a different SHEIN site while you have purchased the Visa gift card from another location.

You have to ensure that you are using the same location on the SHEIN’s site while you are purchasing a gift card. For example, you should use a gift card obtained from SHEIN’s Australia site to purchase items from the same site on your PC or mobile.

2. You entered the wrong PIN

You might have mistakenly added another PIN to the gift card. You should use the same PIN provided while purchasing the gift card for payment.

Check the PIN again and see whether you have entered it correctly. This can be another reason why SHEIN won’t accept Visa gift cards.

3. The gift card has expired

Oops! There is a redemption period for each gift card. And your gift card might have already expired.

The validity date is attached to the card, check whether it has reached its expiration date.

Unfortunately, there is no way you can use an expired card to order products.

4. The card is not activated

Another reason why SHEIN won’t accept Visa gift cards is that you didn’t activate them after the purchase.

Your Visa gift cards are linked to your respective bank accounts. You must activate them to perform any transactions. Your inactive cards will be declined if you use them for payment as the associated bank accounts will not receive your confirmation.

5. The gift card value exhausted

Even if the card is not expired it is possible that it has been used already and the value exhausted. A Visa gift card has a limited value. Even though it can be used multiple times, it can offer a limited value.

If the card has been used completely, you will see issues in redeeming it on SHEIN’s site.
