What is an EGC? Paper gift certificates are being replaced with Electronic Gift Cards in the same format as credit cards. Large retail chains have had tremendous success and now they are available to many businesses of any size. Merchants that have issued paper gift certificates in the past find that the Electronic Gift Certificate program eliminates the need for manual tracking and provides detailed reporting of cards issued and redeemed, allowing gift cards to be monitored effortlessly.

Gift cards offer detailed reporting that gives merchants an accurate picture of their return on gift cards that have been issued, at the same time increasing brand awareness with customized gift cards, and an improved refund policy by issuing refunds on gift cards.

Merchants choose either customized cards printed with their logo and business information, or standardized cards which come in an array of colors and have the message "A Gift for You" (or something similar) printed on them. Customized cards provide a unique marketing tool for the merchant.

Operation of the gift card program is similar to processing credit cards. Transactions are quick, easy and flexible.

Gift cards are great for spas, salons, restaurants and specialty retail. Gift cards also work well as employee incentives. Use them over and over again by simply recharging the card with an amount. This is a great payroll product for many workers who don't use traditional bank accounts.
