Programs at a Glance
A stored value program, these cards replace paper gift certificates. First, the customer pays the merchant, who loads the collected value onto a gift card through a programmed terminal. The funds represented on the card stay in the merchant's account. The cardholder can redeem the value on the card for goods and services at participating merchant locations. The amount of the sale is deducted from the card and the balance remaining prints on the receipt. Cards can be reloaded at any time.
