This feature might not be available in all regions so you might have to research a bit if you can use this or not.

To type the code manually, all you have to do is select to type the code manually while redeeming. Get rid of the label on the back of the card by peeling it. You will find a redemption code under the label which you have to type in your device. You can also paste the redemption code if your gift card is available on your email.
