The Card Market Difference: Why Businesses & POS Providers Choose Us for their Gift Card Program

Gift card vendors come in all shapes and sizes, and finding the best one for you—and your company—can be challenging. Whether you’re a restaurant, retail store, or POS provider looking to equip merchants with solutions for their business, it’s important to choose a gift card vendor you can count on. 

At Card Market, we want to be a true business partner for the businesses and POS providers we serve. We see the value that small businesses add to our communities, and we want to do everything in our power to see them thrive. That’s why we help our merchants and resale partners generate more revenue for their businesses.

The Card Market Difference

If you’re a business looking for a new gift card vendor or you’re a POS provider exploring options for your merchants, here are a few unique characteristics that set Card Market apart: 

1. We strive to make complex processes simple for our customers.

While our team designs, prints, encodes, and ships thousands of gift cards each week, we believe in providing exceptional customer service. We value an order for 100 cards as much as we value an order for 10,000 cards.  

Our team of experts works to ensure customer satisfaction on every gift card order. This includes taking on all the heavy lifting of setting up your online gift card program, designing gift cards, and working with payment processors to ensure your gift card sale integrates with your banking accounts. We know that gift cards can be a hassle when there are other areas of your business that need your attention, so we work hard to take ownership of your gift card needs. 

2. We create customizable solutions for your gift card program.

We have built our services to serve our customers and supply them with solutions that fit their needs from start to finish. Whether you’re a new business looking to sell gift cards for the first time or you need a comprehensive gift card program that includes in-store and online options, our team works with you to find the right gift card program for your business. We want to provide a solution that meets your current needs and scales with your business. 

3. Our Card Market Pro platform makes it easy for businesses to sell and track online gift card sales. 

Selling gift cards online has become an increasing priority for businesses in every industry. It’s quite literally become a way for merchants to increase revenue while they sleep

While business owners might recognize the benefits of offering digital gift cards, the idea of getting started can often be overwhelming. At Card Market, we make it easy for businesses to set up an online gift card platform that integrates directly into their website. 

4. We offer promotional ideas and expertise in a variety of industries.

One thing that sets us apart from other vendors is the amount of energy and effort we put into helping our merchants sell more gift cards. We also help you maximize your ability to sell gift cards online with marketing ideas and promotional tools we’ve developed from best practices learned over the years. 

We’ve also worked in a variety of industries over the years including restaurants, grocery stores, hospitality, spas, salons, entertainment venues, and cannabis dispensaries. This has given us the opportunity to discover the best approach for each industry and to provide expertise for each merchant we serve.  

Why Restaurants Partner with Card Market

We’re proud to be one of the best gift card vendors for restaurants in the industry. Whether you’re a local restaurant or a nationally-recognized chain, we have affordable and customizable gift card solutions to fit your business needs and enhance your customer experience. 

Here’s an inside look at our partnership with Beau Jo’s, an iconic Colorado pizza chain. Over the past decade, we’ve helped Beau Jo’s navigate several challenges, including selling gift cards online, running big box store promotions, and changing POS providers.  

Why Retailers Partner with Card Market

There are more than 150,000 small specialty retail stores in the U.S. as of 2022. These small businesses are the backbone of our economy. At Card Market, we’re constantly looking for ways to help our retail customers spark new ideas for business growth, whether it’s launching a membership rewards program or using gift cards to overcome economic challenges.

When it comes to working with retailers, we don’t operate on a rigid model that forces our customers into solutions or products they don’t need. Our process is designed to be flexible while also ensuring all the small details are taken care of so that the cards work correctly. We believe it’s important to do everything we can for the businesses that add so much value to our communities.

Why POS Providers Partner with Card Market for their Merchants

One of the things we’re most proud of is our partnership with POS providers and payment processors. Our approach to partnering with POS providers is one of the reasons Card Market has received the RetailNOW Gold Award in the Reseller and ISV Support category for multiple years in a row. We work hard to help our POS providers enhance their merchants’ gift card success. Our competitive referral program has also provided resell partners with a way to generate revenue for their own businesses. 

Here’s just one example of the difference Card Market has made for POS providers:

“Card Market makes ordering gift cards easy. I just introduce them to merchants that need cards, and they take it from there. The commission checks are great too. I definitely recommend Card Market to my merchants and other POS providers.” – Steve McBride, Gulf Data Systems
