Ensuring Successful Gift Card Fulfillment

August 16th, 2017

Make your holiday season brighter with better control of your gift card fulfillment.  Whether done in-house or outsourced, an effective program should consider:

  • Historical Data Tracking – Every quantity, serial number, date, version, and tracking number reported for each recipient, so no orders are lost, and fraud cases are easier to investigate.
  • Inventory – Identifying current gift and promotional card inventory levels with associated serial numbers helps determine future card orders, versions, and reinforces sales data integrity.
  • Handling – Determine if it is more cost effective to ship cards to your DC to be fulfilled, or to save the shipping expense and have orders fulfilled through your card production house.
  • Holiday Shipping Strategy – Use historical data to deploy gift card shipments prior to the holidays to avoid delayed shipping times and expedited shipping fees.
