You might be noticing a little bit of trend on the Canadian POS Corporation Blog this week. We’re pretty excited about gift cards around here. And why wouldn’t we be? Gift cards are awesome. If you’re not completely convinced that you should be selling gift cards to your customers in your store, you may want to take a look at our two most recent blogs. You’ll find that the benefits are practically endless!
But wait, there’s more! Business owners who choose to sell gift cards in their stores enjoy the opportunity of selecting from a variety of options. In today’s blog, we’ll reveal some of those options in addition to some great features that you may just want to take advantage of. You definitely don’t have to wait until the end-of-year holiday season to start selling your cards. They work all year round!
You can make it easy and go with standard cards. If you wish, you certainly have the option of choosing from a number of attractive pre-designed card styles. You can add a single colour business logo or customize the text of your choice in any font and colour that you desire. These are great ways to begin increasing customer loyalty for your brand. It’s also the easiest and most cost-effective way to go.
Take some time to design a custom card. Some business owners prefer to invest a bit more into the style of their gift cards. They either design it themselves or ask us for help. Either way is totally fine with us. At Canadian POS Corporation, it’s our job to ensure that you receive the absolute perfect design for your gift cards. That way, even when they are not in use, your gift cards become wallet-sized billboards!
Daily Transaction Summaries. When you order gift cards, you get so much more than the cards themselves. By doing so, you invest in an entirely new way to increase revenue at your company. You’ll want to keep track of it all, right? Daily transaction summaries provide you with daily reports of all of the store value cards that have been processed. That way, you’ll be able to stay on top of all of that extra money you’re making!
Monthly Liability Report. When you sell gift cards, they don’t simply fly out of your store and into the world never to be heard from again. Naturally, they are expected to come back in with their recipients so that you’ll be able to sell merchandise to new customers. However, you’ll always be able to check on the gift cards you sell. Monthly liability reports allow you to check the outstanding balances of all cards that have been issued.
Cardholder Balance Inquiry. You’re not the only one who gets to check balances on gift cards. Your customers will be pleased to know that they have the ability to look into how much money is left on their cards at any time they wish. It’s as easy as picking up a telephone to locate the information. This way, card holders will always be kept in-the-know with respect to their spending on the cards.
If the three blogs that we have posted this week don’t convince you that selling gift cards is the way to go, it’s doubtful that anything will. Nevertheless, we would still be very happy to answer any questions or address any concerns that you may have about beginning this new venture at your business.
