Gift Cards For Your Business

Plastic gift cards can be a vital business tool. They are a popular product, providing a convenient way for customers to give gifts to friends and family without worrying about choosing the perfect item or guessing someone's size or preferences. Recipients usually spend more than the initial gift card value, which increases sales and revenue. Here's something even better: When someone receives a gift card from your business, they're not just getting a great gift, they're also getting a referral from a customer. There is nothing better than a customer standing behind your brand!

Here is some helpful information when placing a gift card order that has a magnetic stripe or barcode: Get a head start on the process by knowing or obtaining your magnetic stripe information
from your POS provider.

You should ask your POS provider:
  • What track do I need to have the data encoded on?

    Tell them that you are looking into having your gift cards printed with a third party printer and that you need to know which track on the magnetic stripe needs to be encoded. The answer you are looking for is "Track 1", "Track 2", or "Both Tracks 1 and 2". On rare occasions, a POS provider requires a Track 3 encoding.

  • Does the data need to be in a certain format or can we use simple numbering?

    The POS software sometimes expects the data encoded on the magnetic stripe to meet certain requirments. Some POS companies require the data have a certain number of characters, or perhaps they must start or end with a certain sequence of characters. Many have no restrictions.

  • How do I load money (value) onto the gift card?

    Many people are under the assumption that the magnetic stripe on a gift card is the vehicle that holds the card's value. This is not the case. Most times, the information on a gift card's magnetic stripe is simply an account number. The card is swiped in a magnetic stripe reader, and the machine reads the card number (as opposed to it being manually typed in). Once it receives that account number on the card, the software will produce the account information on the computer's screen, including the card's value. Procedures for doing this varies between POS providers, but that is a simplistic explanation of what type of information is held within the mag stripe on a gift card.

  • What is the gift card size?

    The gift card size is 3.375 inches wide by 2.125 inches high.
