Between Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, graduation, and weddings — gift card season is upon us. So if you offer gift cards (Square sellers have already scooped up more than a million of them), now’s the time to display those babies prominently — they’ll be flying off the shelf this time of year.
But what if you haven’t invested in a gift card program yet? Not to worry. Square now offers a lightweight way to get in the game. You can now order gift cards in small batches — a pack of 20 costs just $40 and ships in one business day.
Square Gift Card Starter Packs come in a bunch of different creative designs — many of them perfectly suited for the summer gifting occasions ahead. They even come packaged in a special card holder so you can display your cards on the counter for your customers to see.
What’s more, the gift cards are fully integrated into your entire Square ecosystem. You can order, activate, redeem, and track your gift card sales all within your Square Dashboard. And when a customer purchases a gift card, the funds are transferred into your account in one to two business days. No need to use a separate POS or an app like you have to do with other solutions. And there are zero hidden fees.
We’ve worked together with some of our retail partners to provide gift cards at an even more affordable rate. Next week, Square Gift Card Starter Packs will be available on Staples.com, where you can save 50 percent on the cards when you buy them together with a Square Stand. Keep an eye out for Starter Pack discounts at Amazon.com and other retailers later this month. As usual, you can always order them straight from your Square Dashboard.
