BUSINESS FAQ

 

How many cards do I have to put on the site?

This is really up to you and what it is you are trying to accomplish. This is the only Gift Card site where you actually get the revenue from all proceeds of Gift Card Sales. So it isn’t nearly as concerning as a business owner.
Our only ask is that you supply a good enough amount that you aren’t leaving your potential customers frustrated. We suggest an amount that you are comfortable selling at the 40% off rate and then doing an unlimited of the cards that sell for a $5-$10 off rate.

Who gets the money for the Gift Card Sales?

Great question. NiagaraGiftCards.com is the first ever site that gives you all the proceeds to the sales of the Gift Cards. Why shouldn’t you get the money? It is your business, your expenses and your service that is being sold. At the end of every month you will be emailed a rundown of your traffic for the month and a cheque for that amount will be delivered there soon after.

Do I have to offer any at 40% off?

Yes we do ask that you do have quantities that are at the 40% off rate. We know that the consumer is always looking for a deal. We want to ensure that you are represented in the Hot Deals section.

How long do I have to commit for?

We ask that you give us a 4-month commitment. We do advertising and marketing and you will be apart of that. We need to give the consumer the best experience we possibly can. If you are getting the money why would you ever want to leave?

How do I track the gift card?

Other than putting the Cards on the site what else do I get?

Another excellent question.NiagaraGiftCard.com wants to ensure that our partners are getting enough value. We want you to be our partners forever.
On top of the Gift Cards you will also have a Business Profile on our site. This profile will give you an opportunity to speak to all your potential customers through our site.

Lastly you will also go into a rotation for the Leaderboard and Big Box ad spots we have on our site.

Can I put restrictions on the cards?

We would ask that there are no restrictions placed on the Gift Cards. The gift cards are meant to be treated just like actual dollars.

How are you going to promote the site?
