Update: New maximum value for gift cards


Effective May 15, 2024, a maximum value of $2,000USD (or equivalent in global currencies) has been added to gift card issuance. All versions of the Gift Card API will respond with an error for issued gift cards that exceed $2,000USD (or equivalent in global currencies) after this date. The purchase limit for gift card products will be $10,000USD (or equivalent in global currency).

To help you and Shopify merchants stay within this limit, we’ve introduced a new Gift Card Limits query that returns the maximum value in any given currency.

This change will help keep Shopify merchants compliant with laws that apply to gift cards and help ensure they do not inadvertently violate them. The new maximum value will not affect gift cards issued before May 15, 2024.
