Simply put: this is to stop fraudulent accounts.
Any account found to promote or participate in fraudulent purchases will be immediately investigated, suspended, and reported to the appropriate authorities. All credit cards from fraudulent users will be blocked on Stripe from further purchases.
If you suspect an account is guilty of fraudulent behaviors, please inform us immediately.
Gift cards specifically:
While gift cards may make some things easier for you, gift cards have a lot more restrictions and are heavily monitored due to cases of money laundering. (This goes beyond Throne and is why we cannot offer gift cards outside of our approved partners. Only approved vendors can sell and distribute gift cards en masse.)
