Gift cards category disappeared

The gift card category recently disappeared, as well as my existing trade ad.

Any explanation for that? I’d like to get my ad back online.

It’s been removed. The nature of that payment method makes it extremely difficult to arbitrate disputes, unfortunately.

is there any alternative to using gift cards as payment for monero?

That’s unfortunate. It really was the best anonymous and private way of getting Monero.

I guess keeping the category but indicating that buyer protection is not guaranteed is not being considered as well?
