Why did I not receive an email with the gift card?

If you issued a gift card and an email was not received, there are usually two common reasons for this:

To check the email address, and resend the email:


In the Govalo app, go to the Gift Cards dashboard, then find the gift card you'd like to work with and click on View details:


Verify that the email address is correct and use the Edit button to update the recipients address if needed:
