I didn't receive any e-mail to activate my account. What can I do?

It may be, that our e-mail was classified as "spam" (unsolicited advertising) by your e-mail program or internet / e-mail provider and therefore has been filtered out.

Please check that first, to see if our e-mail was placed perhaps in your spam folder.

In case our e-mail has actually been classified as "spam", as you have found it assigned to an appropriate mail folder, you can still click the link provided therein to activate your account within about 3 days after sending the registration. Please note that we delete unfinished user accounts (i.e.: without at least one successful login) on a regular basis, usually after 3 days.

If you have not received our e-mail to unlock and it was not filed in your spam folder, please let us know by e-mail, we will then delete your registration information manually, in advance, so that you can repeat the process with the same email address, if necessary.

It may be, that the e-mail was only temporarily undeliverable, so that a next delivery attempt might be successful.

Of course you can also make an immediate attempt to re-register with another e-mail address.

In any case, we recommend that you ensure that your e-mail program or e-mail provider, classifies e-mail from GiftCertificates.Net as trustworthy in the future and delivers you this logically correct.

If you determine that your e-mail provider will not deliver our e-mails despite your correct configuration repeatedly, we suggest you make your registration by e-mail address from any other e-mail provider.

What is the typical procedure for making my own gift certificate?

Select from the menu bar next to a subject or a topic that fits the occasion or the recipient.

Adjust the positions of the graphical elements for your voucher, and then press the "Download & Print" button.

Your voucher is prepared and immediately available for download. You need the free Adobe Reader to view and print the coupon.

How do I get the free Adobe Reader?

You can download Adobe Reader here. It is a viewer for PDF documents.

Can I suggest new motives?

Yes, please send us an e-mail. We use your recommendation to note and in the further development of GiftCertificates.Net.
