Each gift card has a specific value that can be used for future payments at your store. Gift cards prompt re-purchases from your customers. In some cases, when a customer returns unwanted goods from their last purchase, gift cards can be created and given to customers as reward for loyalty and compensation for any unpleasant shopping experience. This strategy greatly increases the chances of repeat purchases.
Gift cards are created by you as a storefront user and given to customers to redeem their value on orders upon checkout.
