    I can only speak from experience (from 3-4 years ago) as a seller on ebay (using paypal) but I must say I NEVER came out ahead when selling a gift card on ebay. All One had to do was claim that when they got the gift card the money was not the correct amount or the card had 0 dollars (or like in your case, they never got the card. But if they shipped using the shipping labels supplied by Ebay, thats out of the question). And Once 1 Customer Claims Funds Werent Correct on Gift Card, Seems Like Every Other Asshole That Bought/Buys Them Instantly Claims The Same B.S. They Did Look Into The First In Question Transaction , They Wanted To Know The Gift Card Number And Pin, which i no longer had as i sent the card to the buyer, and after they got the info from the buyer they looked into where the card was spent (location of purchases with gift card) and some other B.S. But as soon as that one got reveresed and i owed them, everything went south for future buyers and for my accounts. One lesson i Learned From The Situation, Dont Buy Nor Sell Gift Cards, online or in person.

    I could tell you 10 scams off the top of my head that involve gift card scams, which is enough reason to keep me from participating in that industry.

    Paypal Will Reverse The Transaction As Long As You Supply Whatever They (NOW) Require For a Dispute, as they always do. Also I doubt they used tracking on the package for a gift card, how do you even know its supposed to have arrived ?

    BTW, if u do get the card, spend it online and dont have the product shipped to the location of your account shipping address nor use the card at a local brick and mortar store and get your money back along with the free gift card... just sayin'.
