Mobile eGifting

Mobile is everything in eGift card giving.

Everyone loves the convenience of using their mobile devices to purchase needed goods and services. Did you know that completing mobile transactions is an extremely safe way of doing business?

The rate of fraud for online and mobile transacting is just 0.9 percent, according to a recent PYMNTS.com article. That number, in fact, has stayed constant since 2010 even with eCommerce growing between 12-16 percent each year. So when you want to use National Gift Card (NGC) for your loyalty, rewards or incentive programs in a mobile environment, you can rest assured - it's safe.

NGC is helping its customers maximize the mobile world, too. With its application programming interface (API), eGift cards can be sent in real time to your recipients. It's as simple as emailing eCodes directly to recipients or depositing a live code on a website for the recipient to pick up at their convenience. Recipients simply redeem the gift by using their mobile device at checkout.

More than 150 retailers currently accept eGift cards via the API. The list of goods and services offered by those retailers is extensive. And from brand names your customers and employees know, like Amazon. By redeeming eGift cards, music, books and millions of other products from the giant retailer can be purchased.

Target eGift cards can be used with a mobile device at any of its 1,700 U.S. stores, including the Target Clinic or Target Pharmacy. If your recipients are lovers of all things electronic, NGC offers Best Buy eGift cards, too. From smartphone upgrades to the latest in computing, the Best Buy eGift card can do it all.

The API also works with Virtual Visa. Rewards are delivered to recipients in the form of a promo code, which are then redeemed for a Visa Virtual Account. The accounts are good wherever Visa is accepted.

So, don't hesitate to move into the mobile age for your gift cards. We've got you covered.
