Offer Gift Cards to Your Customers – Increase Sales!
|In-store displays are used to merchandise gift cards much like any small impulse-buy product—by the register with counter signs and colorful card hangers. Customers can purchase a gift card with cash, check or credit card for whatever dollar amount they desire. The amount they purchased is then recorded as “stored value” or “prepaid” in the host database.|
Boost and Extend Holiday Season Sales
|Gift cards are quickly becoming the most popular holiday presents, with more than two-thirds of U.S. shoppers buying an average of 4-5 cards in 2005, according to a survey of about 17,500 consumers by accounting firm Deloitte & Touche. Gift cards help boost sales and extend the holiday shopping season, bringing in consumers long after the holiday shopping season has passed.|
More Full Price Sales
|According to Retail Card Forum, shoppers using prepaid gift cards and certificates are more likely to pay full price in retail stores than shoppers using other media, according to recent research by Daniel R. Horne, assistant professor of marketing at Providence College, RI. Horne’s survey found that 40% of shoppers that used a retailer’s gift card purchased items at full price, compared to only 16% of shoppers who used other payment methods.|
