It is definitely the most popular use of gift cards. They can be found at point of sales in almost every retail chain. Thanks to gift cards offered in your brick-and-mortar stores you will incorporate the online store in omnichannel, as gift cards can be used by customers also in your online store. Soon it will also be possible in the offline store as IAI POS is going to accept gift cards. It will allow to e.g. enter a new card to the system by scanning the card number at the moment of purchasing the card by a customer.
In order to sell gift cards it is enough to create a new product, e.g. Gift card￡200 and prepare attractive template of the card in PDF so that a customer can receive it at the moment of purchase. You can also prepare plastic cards on which you include your logo and send it to your customers along with the information that the card can be topped up.
Until now you could refund your customers by topping up their customer balance. From now on, thanks to gift cards, you can send cash to a bearer, what makes gift cards even more universal. Your customer can pass the card to somebody else, e.g. a wife or a daughter who can use it for completely different assortment in your store.
