I’m on Etsy and I’m asked the name of the card. I can’t pay without inputting it in. I tried just my name and I’m a minor so I’ve never done this before. There is a user guide with the gift card but it doesn’t explain this.

  • Did you register the card? You should be able to use the name used at the registration. – 0xFEE1DEAD Jun 12 '20 at 1:06
  • I was sure we already had an answer to this somewhere, but I can't find the other question... – yoozer8 Jun 12 '20 at 12:56

It doesn't matter what you put in, the gift card's processor will ignore the name. The name is only checked for actual cards that have a name associated. You can put in "gift card" or your actual name or anything else you want.


Yes just enter your name and register your card to your name. Make sure the code is linked to your account


I have been known to give the name "Cash" in such situations. If they ask for a first and a last name, the first name is "Cash" and the last name is "Order."
