When we were little, we all remember receiving gifts for special occasions such as birthdays or holidays such as Christmas. However, as time passes, so do people’s preferences. It’s impossible to forecast what someone will like these days, given the enormous array of options accessible both online and offline. A Gift Card from any business or brand is one of the top gift options these days.
A gift card is a type of payment that may be used to make purchases at the eCommerce store that issued it.
If you buy a gift card from Starbucks or Amazon, you or the recipient can only spend it at the store that issued the card.
Digital gift cards can be used from anywhere and if it belongs to an eCommerce store, then anyone with the card can make a purchase and use it.
Customers find it a more convenient gift option. Gift cards can be physical (i.e., a plastic card) or digital (i.e., a digital file). Digital gift cards do not have a physical form; instead, you are given a unique gift code number that you may use to make purchases at online stores. The most common type of gift card is still physical cards, although this is projected to alter shortly.
Knowband’s Digital Gift cards are tailored for eCommerce and allow sellers to use them as Physical as well as the digital card. Scroll down for real-life examples of OpenCart Digital Gift card managers and explore more.
