Key Features

Purchase Gift Cards

A gift card sale is handled through the POS like any other typical order. Your customer picks and pays a gift card denomination he/she wishes to load in the gift card and then the user - whether it's the payer or a different recipient - can immediately use the card.

Batch Gift Card Orders

Your customers can buy gift cards in bulk for any personal or corporate occasion. Batch gift cards can be assigned different values, if your customer wants that.

Free Gift Cards

You can give away gift cards to maintain or regain customers' loyalty. Order mistakes, poor service, and other common service issues can be settled or redressed with free cards. In fact, free cards are a popular customer retention strategy across the restaurant industry.

Flexible denominations

Popular gift card denominations are $10, $25, $50, and $100. However, your customers can select any other denomination they want.
