A merchant, cashier, server, etc may not always be aware of GiftYa, and that's totally fine!
If you chose the "Activate" method, the merchant or cashier does not need to be notified you are using a GiftYa. We have approval from all merchants to offer GiftYas, but partner directly with Visa, Mastercard, and Amex for the actual payments and credit part of the process. Your cashier will process your purchase like normal using a Visa, Mastercard, or Amex and you will receive a credit on your statement for the amount you spent.
If you choose the "Use as an eGift" method, you can display the barcode or QR code to your cashier.
