07 Apr Step 4: Sell Gift Cards Online
Over the past 2 weeks, we have sent several suggestions for addressing COVID-19. If you’ve missed any, you can find them here.
Here’s what we suggest you do next: Consider making gift cards available for sale online.
Gift cards are a great way for your community to support you and help to supplement cash flow during this crisis.
We want to make it as easy for customers to buy gift cards from you as possible.
How to sell gift cards during the COVID-19 crisis:
- Store Pickup – Add a message to your website that lets customers know they can call in to pay for a gift card over the phone.
- PayPal – Add a PayPal button to your website to allow customers to pay for gift cards online. Once payment is received, you can mail the gift card or make it available for store pickup.
- Kabbage – Offer online gift certificate sales through this 3rd party vendor. Kabbage has made online gift card sales for businesses during COVID-19.
Your Marketing Specialist can help you add any information to your website to make this information available online. We can also share this on Google My Business, social media (if applicable) and email marketing (if applicable).
Thank you all so much! Stay safe and healthy.
