How to Use Amazon Gift Card in Nigeria
Using the Amazon card in Nigeria is possible in two ways. It is either you use it for the real deal which is buying on Amazon store/Amazon app store or convert it to Naira or bitcoin buy selling it to people online.
When exchanging Amazon gift cards in Nigeria, you don’t have to redeem it yourself. People buy it from themselves in Nigeria, and the buyer can redeem or also sell to another person. When you agree on the payment, the transaction will go very smooth, but you need to be vigilant. If you check out social media pages such as Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, among others, people make adverts on buying and selling of gift cards. Such people are willing to purchase gift cards from you without stress.

Although, if you want to exchange your Amazon gift card for bitcoin, you will need a wallet as, without that, you cannot receive bitcoin. If your choice is cash, the buyer will give you the equivalent of the card value in Naira Exchange rate. However, this affects what you can get with your gift card since it is not in Naira initially.
