About E-gift cardUpdated 6 days ago

What is E-gift card?

A gift card is a prepaid E-card that can be used as a form of payment for purchases at our store. It serves as a convenient and flexible gifting option, allowing the recipient to choose their preferred items.  

E-gift cards will be emailed to you directly upon purchase in the form of a series of digital codes, so you can forward it to the lucky recipient. There is no expiry, so they can shop when they like.  The recipient can simply use the digital code at the checkout when making a purchase on our website.

Should you lose an issued E-gift card, please contact customer support so we can re-send it to you.

Please note: 

  • E-Gift Cards cannot be redeemed in-store. 
  • Gift cards are denominated in NZD (New Zealand Dollars) and can be purchased and redeemed by customers in their local currency. However, please note that if you purchase a gift card in a currency other than NZD, the balance of your gift card may be subject to change due to fluctuations in the exchange rate at the time of redemption.

Feel free to purchase from here.


What will happen if I purchase an E-gift card in a foreign currency?

It is possible that you may be charged a foreign exchange fee by your bank when you make a purchase in a currency other than your local currency. This depends on the agreement you have with your bank. Please consult with your bank or financial institution to understand their policies regarding foreign exchange fees.


How does paying in a foreign currency affect gifting to another country?

If you are purchasing items as a gift and the transaction involves a currency conversion, the recipient in the other country may be subject to foreign exchange fees when receiving the gift. The fees would depend on the recipient's agreement with their own bank or financial institution. It is advisable to inform the recipient about the potential for foreign exchange fees, so they can check with their bank for more information.


Will Untouched World charge any additional fees for purchases made in a foreign currency?

Untouched World does not charge any additional fees specifically related to foreign currency transactions. However, please note that the final amount you pay may be subject to exchange rate fluctuations and any foreign exchange fees imposed by your bank. These fees are outside of Untouched World's control and are determined solely by your bank or financial institution.


Are there any other considerations I should be aware of when making a purchase in a foreign currency?

Yes, it is important to be aware that when making a purchase in a foreign currency, the final amount you pay may differ from the initial price displayed on the website due to fluctuations in exchange rates. Additionally, your bank may apply its own exchange rate, which can also impact the final amount charged to your account. It is advisable to review your bank's policies and fees related to foreign currency transactions before making a purchase.



Please be aware that gift cards are denominated in NZD and can be redeemed by customers in their local currency. The recipient won't have any issues when redeeming the e-gift card on our website and paying in another currency. Please also note that the balance of your gift card may be subject to change due to fluctuations in the exchange rate at the time of redemption.
