The Business, Benefits, and Brilliance of Gift Cards (2/2)

Jun 24, 2024 | Latest News

Welcome back to part two of The Business, Benefits, and Brilliance of Gift Cards! The team at In1 Solutions has been in the gifting game for over three decades. Owing to our vast experience, we could go on and on (… and on) about why our gift cards are the perfect fit for your business. But in the interest of keeping it short and sweet, we’re keeping it to a two post series.

It was a real challenge to narrow down the results of our brainstorming sessions! The benefits of gift cards are countless. But, as always, should you like to discuss any of our products or services in more detail, please do not hesitate to reach out to us on We’d be delighted to schedule a meeting at your earliest convenience. Without further ado, let’s jump back in!


Eligible for instant use.
When a customer purchases a gift card for use at your property, we ensure the purchase journey is simple, intuitive, and quick. After entering their credentials and card details, the customer hits “Pay Now” to finalise their purchase. The moment the payment processes, the gift card is instantly dispatched to the lucky recipient’s inbox. Unless, of course, the buyer specifically requests the voucher be sent at a later date; for example, on the recipient’s birthday. Not only that, but the gift card is eligible for use immediately. No need to verify the voucher via an app or wait 48 hours for activation!


Fill rooms and sell stock.
When the dust settles after peak seasons, such as summer and Christmas, your business may experience a drop in footfall and revenue. Empty rooms and excess stock can be frustrating for motivated sellers looking to maximise profits. Luckily, gift cards are the perfect remedy! Our vouchers can be fitted with discounts and promo codes to attract customers, whatever the time of year. We also see excellent results from clients implementing Themed Vouchers as the strategy adds a personalised element to the product, while making them relevant all year round.

Combat fraud.
Vouchers are a highly secure method of gifting cash and/or experiences to loved ones. Not only are our payment gateways SSL secured, closely monitored, and updated regularly, they are also GDPR compliant and adhere to 3DSecure protocols. On top of that, the gift voucher purchasing journey requires minimal personally identifiable information. At the business’ own discretion, gift cards may be cancelled upon request if lost or stolen. Finally, they are sent directly to the specified inbox, streamlining the process and eliminating the need for a third party between purchaser and recipient.


Complement and enhance your customer service.
Every successful business works hard to ensure their customers are fully satisfied. But not all forces are within their control! There’s bound to be a mishap every now and then. If a customer is dissatisfied with their experience at your establishment, a gift card is an excellent way to show your appreciation for their custom, right any wrongs, and encourage their return.


Flexible to use when they want, where they want.
Irish legislation states that, unless otherwise specified by a promotion, gift cards remain in date five years from time of purchase. As a result, customers have vast flexibility to use their vouchers whenever is most convenient for them. This sense of freedom is often enhanced by Cash Vouchers. With Monetary Gift Cards, guests may choose to redeem their gift card against an overnight stay, spa treatment, three-course meal… Whatever experience excites them the most! The gift of choice is a powerful magnet.


And that concludes our two part series on the business, benefits, and brilliance of gift cards. Still mulling it over? No problem!
