How to set up a gift-card system

Your Point of Sale provider 

Many point of sale providers offer gift card programs, letting you set up digital gift cards for sale. Get in touch with your provider or check out their website for more information!


If you are looking for a gift card provider, we recommend checking out Square Gift Cards. It is free to set up and sell their eGift cards online, you just need to make a Square account. They charge a 2.2% processing rate whenever a customer buys an eGift card from you. Square will help you set up a web-page to sell your gift cards, click here for an example, which you can link to your own website and we can list on LocalSpots.
