The Worthing Gift Card was launched Christmas 2021 and currently there are over 90 businesses registered to take the cards. If you haven’t done this yet then you could be missing out !!
Businesses located within the Business Improvement District (BID) can join the Worthing Gift Card scheme at no cost as long as they can take a Mastercard payment. The physical cards will need you to swipe them to take payment but don’t worry if you don’t have swipe facilities we now have a digital card that can be set up in Apple and Google wallets.
Its FREE to be part of the programme; and there are no additional set-up /ongoing fees for participating businesses as these are being met by the Worthing Town Centre Initiative funded by the BID.
If you want to join but need help then please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Why is it good for your business to sign up?
- It introduces new customers to your business
People that receive town centre gift cards tend to explore more. 15% of redemption is by customers visiting a business for the first time.
- It can attract additional spend
Customers that redeem gift cards spend on average 40% more than the value of the gift card and tend to upgrade their experience, going for higher-margin products – it’s the psychology of gifting!
- It’s easy to implement
As the programme uses the existing Mastercard infrastructure it’s easy for a business to get involved – no changes are required to software or hardware in order to accept the gift card.
- It pays automatically
Businesses receive the full value of the money spent via their existing payment channels at the time of purchase. The transaction is treated the same as someone purchasing via Mastercard.
Many of the cards will be purchased at Christmas meaning cardholders will be spending in Jan / Feb bringing much needed income during the quieter trading months.
