Hi there!  I really want to offer gift cards (either physical or electronic, I haven't decided yet) as opposed to printed, hand written gift certificates.  What solution do you use?  I see that Square just started offering physical gift cards for $1.50 each.  Most of my business is done via emails and PayPal, however.  I also found GiftFly, which promotes free e-gift cards.  Does anyone use them?  


What solution do you all use for offering gift cards?  Thanks!

the last time i offered gift cards it was in my bookstore and it had to be connected/compatible to my pos and this is all about 8 years ago so technology has come a long way since then -- but i had to buy the quantity of cards and only a certain kind would work in my pos -- had to pay extra per monthly charge to run them -- yes lost at least a coupla bucks per card unless they reloaded it -- it was worth it but it was a big deal to set up but not to run
