We have been looking for many ways to support businesses through these difficult times and have created a partnership with FanSaves to be part of the FanSaves Helps Gift Certificate Program. This program allows people to buy gift certificates on an online platform, so they don't have to leave home, from businesses that are currently open, closed or offering limited services, which they can use in the future once things get back to normal.
FanSaves has stepped up to offer this service for FREE!!
How it works: Once a gift certificate is purchased through the FanSaves Helps website, the buyer will receive a digital gift certificate with a unique code that will be tracked for you in a Google Spreadsheet (which you will have access to). Any money received on your behalf will then be transferred to you via Direct Deposit or e-transfer within 14 days (minus any credit card transaction fees that may come off the top).
Lastly, once you re-open your doors, the buyer can then print off their gift certificate and bring it to you. You can then keep track of the balance however it works best for you (some businesses are transferring it to their own gift card program others can use the old school method of tracking the balance right on the print out).
As mentioned, this is completely free. The FanSaves Helps team have created a site, more like a network, where businesses across Canada can feature their gift certificates all in one place.
