Buying gift cards abroad

I’ve tried twice to buy gift cards online from the US shop Target. On both occasions the payment does not go through even though Target says my order has been processed. Anyone else experienced similar issues? Could it be that gift cards get flagged as money transfers?

I don't think they ship to the UK?

The gift card was being sent to an address in the US as a wedding gift so should not be a shipping issue. Thanks for the suggestion though.

As you can't add an international address to a paypal account then you would have selected the addy during checkout on Targets website.

However as the seller has 0 seller protection unless they send to the paypal registered address of the payee AND you cannot add an international address to a paypal account then they may well have blocked international payments.
