You’ll receive the funds from the sale of a gift card when it is loaded and sold, according to your transfer schedule. You won’t receive a transfer for purchases made with a gift card, as it’s deducting pre-paid credit that was paid when the gift card was purchased.
No. Much like a cash or other tender payment, no additional fees will be applied to transactions completed with a gift card issued from Square – only the payment total will be deducted from the gift card balance.
Yes. If you use multiple locations with Square, your gift cards can be issued and redeemed at any location.
If you use eGift Cards, customers can order them online from your eGift Card order site by sharing your custom URL with them, or they can order gift cards through the Give and Get Local Directory along with other local businesses in your area that also offer eGift Cards.
Note: Only businesses offering Square eGift Cards will appear in the search in this directory. Businesses that only offer physical gift cards in store will not be reflected.
If your business sells eGift Cards through Square and you have been processing payments with us, you should have the option to be included in the Give and Get Local Directory by visiting the eGift Cards section of your online Square Dashboard and toggling on Show a link to my eGift Cards in public directories. Once you toggle this on, your business should appear in the Give and Get Local Directory instantly.
If you wish to opt your business out of the Give and Get Local Directory, please visit the eGift Cards section of your online Square Dashboard and toggle off Show a link to my eGift Cards in public directories. Once you toggle this off, mention of your business will be removed from all directories, including those of our partners, but you will still be able to promote your business and sell eGift Cards online through your personal eGift Card site using your custom URL.
Yes – when a customer purchases a gift card, you can apply a discount to the sale. For example, if your customer purchases a $20 gift card and you’d like to discount the total sale by $5, apply a $5 discount. Your customer will receive a $20 gift card and will have paid $15.
If you’re using a Loyalty program with Square, customers can earn stars when they pay with your gift cards. To earn stars for eligible transactions, customers need to use the same phone number entered when enrolling to your loyalty program..
