Frequently Asked Questions

Spending Your One4all Gift Card

Which stores accept the One4all Gift Card?

Hundreds of stores accept the One4all Gift Card. You can view the full retailer list here.


How do I spend the One4all Gift Card Online?

In a nutshell: use it like you would a Visa Debit card. If you need more help spending online, full instructions are available here. Make sure to check the Spend Online page to make sure your chosen retailer accepts the One4all Gift Card online, as not all retailers can do so.


I want to buy something worth more than the value of the card.

In-store: simply tell the cashier how much is on your One4all Gift Card and they will swipe for this amount, then you can pay the rest via cash or card.
Online: unfortunately this is not currently possible, as most websites do not accept multiple payment methods.


Can I ‘top up’ or add extra funds to my One4all Gift Card?

Unfortunately it is not currently possible to top your card with additional funds, as the One4all Gift Card is a single-load card.


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

All retailers should be fully knowledgeable about how to process the One4all Gift Card, however if they’re not sure, simply tell them to swipe the card like a typical Visa debit card (i.e. back in the days before Chip & PIN). Make sure you know your card’s balance, as the retailer won’t be able to check this for you.


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

There could be several reasons why this happened. Please check:

- That you know your balance, and it is more than or equal to the amount you’re trying to spend.
- The One4all Gift Card hasn’t expired (check the Valid Thru date on the front of the card).
- The retailer’s card terminal isn’t working correctly.

Checking Your Gift Card Balance

There are range of ways to check your gift card balance:

- Check the balance online by clicking here
- Text ‘My Balance’ followed by your 16 digit card number to 57887 to receive an SMS stating your balance.

My One4all Gift Card has 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?

Retailers do not have access to check your balance at their tills, as the One4all Gift Card is a prepaid Visa debit card (a bit like your bank card – retailers can’t see your bank balance). If they attempt to process the One4all Gift Card for more than the balance on the card then the transaction will be rejected.
