Gift Cards for charity retail
Gift cards increase sales. Statistics show shoppers tend to spend 72% more than the value of the Gift card, on average. The Gift card feature in Cybertill’s CharityStore platform allows you to create and sell your own multichannel Gift cards that supporters can redeem in-store and online.
Gift cards are a great marketing tool and charity retailers can use them to drive traffic to their stores and online shops, helping you retain loyal supporters and enhancing their experience with your charity. With Cybertill’s Gift card module, you can customise the Gift card offering to suit your business.
Why do charity retailers need gift cards?
No, this isn’t the opening line of a joke, there are so many benefits for charity retailers offering gift cards,
here are just a few:
No transaction fees
It’s a gift card, we don’t believe there should be transaction fees – you have full ownership of your customer data.
Gift Cards can be fully or partially redeemed and used in conjunction with other forms of payment.
If your charity has retail shops outside of the UK then there is international support for cards that are sold and redeemed globally.
Add to the card
If someone wants to add more funds to a gift card or extend the expiry date then no problem, authorised staff can adjust the expiry and balance.
Customise your gift cards with Cybertill’s design service, letting you offer different designs and themes.
It's in the cloud
Gift card and customer data is stored securely in the cloud, meaning that not only do you have instant access to all data but if a customer has lost their card, they can still redeem it.
Set your own rules
It’s up to you what rules you set, if you want an option to add expiry dates, set whether refunds are accepted, offer set values, or set open price cards, the choice is up to you.
Make online gift cards more secure by adding a scratch panel and a PIN so they can only be used by the person intended.
Gift Card Reporting
It’s so easy to import gift cards to the CharityStore platform which means you can run any reporting features you wish to.
Approximately £6bn is spent each year in the UK on gift cards and 44% of 18-34 year olds buy a gift card at least once every two months.
