WHAT IS A CLOSED LOOP GIFT CARD?



A closed loop gift card is a type of gift card that can only be used at a particular location or within a retailer’s specific network.

How Does Secure Prepaid Card Work?

Merchants apply to join Secure Prepaid Card's network. After a merchant has been approved to join Secure Prepaid Card's network, the merchant is given a plugin that enables their e-commerce site to accept Secure Prepaid Card's gift cards as a method of payment. End users load their gift cards on Secure Prepaid Card's website.

What is the Secure Prepaid Card platform?

We offer merchants access to a closed loop electronic gift card platform. This means that end user customers that load one of our gift cards can redeem the value of that card in goods or services at any merchant's website in our network. Compare the value of a gift card offered by your favorite pizza place to a gift card that is honored by all businesses that are members of your local Chamber of Commerce.

Why would you want to use electronic gift cards on your e-commerce site

Electronic gift cards help to expand your customer base. Offering gift cards as a method of payment allow you to reach customers that do not have access to credit cards. Gift cards can be a great marketing tool. People use gift cards as a tool when they do not know what to buy someone. Gift cards are convenient. In 2015 U.S. gift card spending exceeded $25 Billion. In fact, according to the National Retail Federation’s (NRF) 2015 Holiday Survey, 58.8% of consumers said they would like to get a gift card this holiday season. Shouldn't your business have access to this market?

Our electronic gift cards are virtual, meaning that there is no physical card that can be stolen or lost. The prepaid nature of our platform means that when an electronic gift card balance is validated by our system, you have the security of knowing that the funds are available to pay for the purchase. We use the same industry standard SSL encryption to protect our electronic gift card transactions that major online retailers use to secure their credit card transactions
