How EGC Works
Retains 100% of Purchased Value
Unlike paper certificates, value is retained for partially used cards
The sales price is deducted from the card and the remaining balance used later
Remaining balances bring return visits and ensure that the entire value will be spent at your business
Integrates Seamlessly into Your Business Environment
Works on all of Elavon's supported payment terminals and software solutions
Administration is as easy as regular credit card purchases
Monitor transaction details and card balances online
Benefits At a Glance
Stored value cards are a smart business choice for many reasons, including:
Bring in New Customers
Gift cards given by loyal customers entice friends and families to sample your business. The cards are ideal for promotional mailings, charitable donations, come-back rewards, and other marketing programs
Increase Sales & Profits
Most card recipients spend more than the value of their gift card - 25% more on average - and there's no cash back required. And, when used for merchandise returns, the value stays on the card and never leaves
Encourage Repeat Business
Stored value cards are great for regular customers, enabling them to conveniently use a prepaid balance for recurring services.
Popular with Customers
Gift cards are consistently one of the top gifts during the holiday season. They also attract new customers and boost sales all year long.
