Hi. How can we help?

Are there restrictions when creating gift card numbers?


  • Retail POS for Mac or PC
  • Retail POS on iPad 


Gift card numbers can be as long as you want and can contain letters, numbers and dashes. They may not contain special characters or spaces. 

Additional Information

  • We do recommend that numbers be 6-16 digits long and in a non-sequential order for security reasons.
  • Gift card numbers longer than 12 digits may not be read by your scanner. 
  • If printing your own gift cards, you can determine the gift card numbers using the above information. Then when selling, simply use the number on the new gift card.
