Buy gift cards to send to Korea from US
« on: January 21, 2019, 04:34:08 PM »
I am wondering if there is anyone here ever purchased gift cards and made payment from the US to send to Korea? I am struggling now, 'cause Korean e-commerce sites that I can search for like Gmarket, or Coupang all reject US cards.

Thanks in advance!!!

So I tried out a site called SodaGift (https://gift.sodatransfer.com/) which I think might interest you.
You can send gift cards to Korea from the US and vice versa.
They have a couple gift cards for large retail department stores like Lotte and Hyundai and one more I can't remember. I paid with bank transfer but Venmo was also an option.
Their fee is pretty cheap. If I am not confused, it is starting around $3 and the exchange rate is mid-market. My gift card was sent in a couple of hours to the recipient's phone via sms.

Hope it helps.
