Sell Your Gift Cards Online

 

Less than 3% of family owned restaurants sell their gift cards online, a mistake that can cost a restaurant tens of thousands of dollars annually. Our average fine dining restaurant client will sell over 10K worth of gift cards online in the month of December alone. Over $100 Billion is spent on gift cards annually and online gift card sales are growing by 29% per year as customers search for more convenient and unique gift options. 


Provide more than just a gift card.

Customers are searching for a convenient and unique gift. Restaurants that provide gift cards with multiple custom designs, matching presenters, branded envelopes, and a special touch - including an item or handwritten note perform exceptionally well.

Ensure your website is mobile optimized, 60% of restaurant website visitors are mobile. Add features like the ability to pay with Apple Pay to increase convenience for customers, in turn increasing conversions for you. Collect and save all of your customers emails, during holiday seasons run campaigns to entice customers to purchase again. Our clients have found that over 60% of holiday gift card purchases are from returning customers. 

Constantly remind your customers, and friends of customers that your holiday gift is the perfect gift. Increase your Facebook and Instagram advertising budget during holiday seasons marketing the purchase link of your gift cards. Add a banner to your website that reminds visitors that you sell gift cards online. During off holidays run promotions offering guests 10% off on gift cards, keeping in mind that 18% of restaurant gift cards are not redeemed.
