What are e-gift cards and e-codes?

What is the difference between e-gift cards and e-codes?

E-Gift Cards are delivered by M&S on your behalf. You’ll send us a list of email addresses, personal messages and the values that you’d like to give to each recipient, and we’ll sort the rest

E-Codes are for you to deliver to the end recipient. We’ll supply you with a spreadsheet of unique URL’s and you can then email these to the end recipients, as and when you need to. When the recipient clicks on the URL, they will download their M&S e-Gift Card which can be used in-store or online.
