* Returned Payment is a payment which was not completed due to non-sufficient funds (NSF).

** Rejected Payments are payments which were not completed because the account information provided was not accurate or is linked to an account which does not allow for EFT.

*** Though it is our strict policy not to allow cancellations, returns or exchanges of gift cards after they have been received, occasionally we do under exceptional circumstances and at our sole discretion; and in all such cases, a restocking fee will apply.

All applicable taxes apply to the fees.
