Finally an Online Instant Gift Certificate Solution for High Volume Salons, Spas, and Restaurants

Many businesses offer in-store gift card or gift certificate sales to their consumers but have been reluctant to offer them online due to the initial investment and monthly costs associated with building a customized solution.

Feb. 8, 2009 - PRLog -- TheGiftCardCafe.com is the perfect solution for Salons, Day Spas, Restaurants, and Retail Stores, really any business that has a website and offers gift cards or certificates at their physical location.  After our launch in 2007, our Free Set-up Pay Per Order Plan has proven to be a huge success with smaller businesses with a lighter volume of online Gift Card and Instant Gift Certificate Sales.  

As our business grew so did the sales of our clients. We were faced with developing a program that was more attractive to businesses that were generating $25,000 to $1,000,000 in annual gift card sales.  Most of our competitors only offer a fee per/transaction model, which clearly doesn’t bode well with businesses that generate this type of volume.  

Our primary goal was to developing a New Program for 2009 that would give extremely successful businesses an alternative to the cost per/transaction model that has driven the Online Instant Gift Certificate business for so many years!

We knew a fixed monthly cost structure would be the most appealing for those businesses who generate a higher volume of Online Gift Certificate Sales!  

After conducting an analysis of our clients annual sales, we found that the majority of our Pay Per Order clients were on the right plan, but for many of our higher volume clients there was an opportunity to add thousands of dollars directly to their bottom line by using the New Monthly Subscription Plan at just $49.95 per/month.  There is a onetime setup fee of $99.00 to integrate our shopping cart system to their PayPal Pro merchant account, which normally takes two to three business days to be approved by PayPal.  

This New Monthly Subscription Plan has an incredible value proposition for businesses that have a higher volume of online gift certificated sales.  Follow the link to review the entire December, 2008 Case Study written by Geoffrey Gross, the business manager for Chicago’s Premier Massage Spa - Urban Oasis.
