Let RetailEdge Build your Gift Cards with You

As a Retailer it’s most likely the busiest time of the year for you. Your customers are also busy, shopping for the perfect gift for everyone on their list– but what if they don’t know what to get?

Gift Cards, as you probably know, are very popular gift options: stocking stuffers, christmas parties, hanukkah gifts, you name it. Retailers are often finding themselves needing gift cards to stay competitive with big chains like Bed Bath & Beyond and Target. But buying bulk gift cards can be both expensive and time consuming. And we know how precious time is for our retailers.

That’s why RetailEdge makes buying gift cards through us easy and efficient. You already know they’re going to work within RetailEdge, but here are some things you may not know about our gift cards:

 

    • They are Reloadable– have your customers reload and reuse gift cards
    • No Processing Fees-The only cost for you is the cost of the gift cards themselves.
    • You can issue a gift card during a return instead of doing store credit.
    • Customers tend to spend more than the amount on the gift card.
    • They can be offered as part of an upsell process. (i.e., Spend X amount of dollars and receive Y gift card)
    • They bring more traffic into your store by giving someone an incentive to shop where they might not normally.
    • Eye-catching gift cards displayed at the register provide good impulse-buy opportunities. (Don’t forget a display or hangers to put in front of the register!)
    • Allows you to build social media presence:
      • Offer gift cards to your 1,000th follower
      • Put everyone who tweets a special hashtag into drawing
      • Give a gift card to one lucky winner who shares your Facebook post
    • Provides in-wallet advertising

 

How does our process work? 

  1. Send us a high-resolution image, along with what you would like the front and back to say (“Gift Card”, your store information, slogan, etc.)
  2. We create a proof of what your gift card will look like. We work with you until it is just right.
