How will I receive my eGift Card?
eGift Cards will be sent via email upon receipt of payment. If your eGift Card order DOES NOT include the purchase of other merchandise your payment will process normally and you will receive your eGift Card to your email address. If your eGift Card order DOES include the purchase of other merchandise your payment will process and your eGift Card will be emailed once your whole order ships. Please note that if your order includes a customized product, shipment of the entire order, included the eGift Card, will take up to 5 days. (If you wish to receive your eGift Card as quickly as possible it is best to purchase eGift Cards and other merchandise separately.)
Can I ship to another country?
Unfortunately we are unable to ship outside South Africa. If you are outside of South Africa, please visit the authorized Zippo retailer/distributor in your country.
