Gift-giving is always tricky especially when the recipient is not a close acquaintance. Gift cards to the rescue!
Gift cards are a less lazy gift than just sending money. But like money, they give the recipients control over what items they would be receiving. This level of control lessens the disappointing faces and the likelihood of returns.
As one of the leading e-commerce platforms in the world, Amazon, of course, offers its gift cards. The best part is that there is no expiration date and they are redeemable at any time.
As a seller, you can promote your business and help customers with their gifts by endorsing Amazon Gift Cards. Tell customers that with an Amazon Gift Card, recipients can pick and choose your products themselves. Your customer need not worry and guess which of your products would be suitable gifts. Maybe they can even purchase one for themselves.
There are different Amazon Gift Card types available:
It’s best for sellers to be informed of different gift card promos, along with other Amazon news, so they can strategize their marketing campaigns accordingly. Different types but the same awesome functionality. Now you can help your customers with their gift-giving dilemmas. And during special events like “Prime Day”, special discounts, freebies, and add-ons may become available for gift card purchasers. This recently finished Prime Day 2022, for example, gave an additional $10 to those who reloaded their gift cards with $100.
Before your customers can get claim codes, they first need to purchase Gift Cards.
Buyers can get the Amazon Gift Claim Code by checking the card closely. The claim code should be printed clearly on it.
Remind customers to include instructions when sending their gift cards as claim codes can be placed differently. It all depends on the gift card type.
There is no expiration date for claiming the code. However, it is advised that recipients redeem the gift cards as soon as possible to prevent and address any issues should there be one. An example is misplacing or mishandling a gift card, resulting in a blurred or unreadable claim code.
Claiming the code credits the gift card balance to the recipient’s Amazon account. People can opt to save their credits by unchecking the “use gift card” or “use balance” options when checking out. They can check these options once more when they are ready to use the points.
Nothing is perfect and even with Amazon, there can be issues in claiming gift card codes.
As long as your buyers and their recipients are careful, there should be little to no issues at all. As a seller, aftercare is a must-know. You can easily resolve these concerns if you have Amazon Account Managers that handle your Customer Service.
Gift cards are great and versatile gifts. You can send a physical card with claim codes at the back. Or you can send them digitally via email or text. You can choose designs or customize your own. They are widely available both in stores and online. And are easy to activate and redeem.
Successful brands have gift cards of their own. Buyers get to patronize your brand without the hassle of choosing specific products from your catalog. The recipients are free to browse and choose what they wish leaving little chance of refunds and returns.
The best part about Amazon Gift Cards is that they don’t expire. Buyers aren’t pressured to make decisions that could lead to buyer’s remorse.
