To Redeem on the GiftLocal dashboard or redemption app, enter the digits into the code entry boxes.
For business gift cards, you'll only need to enter the last 6 of the 12 digit number.
Other gift card programs have different number digits to enter - but never more than the full 12.
Click “Verify Gift”, “Redeem Gift,” and then enter the desired redemption amount and click “Redeem now”
If you are using the Gift Local redemption app, you have the option to scan the gift QR code with the "Scan Gift Card" button.
4. Lastly, tender the amount used out to your Gift Local tender key on your POS.
With Gift Local, customers have a few options how how they wish to deliver their gift. The sender can choose to deliver the gift via the following methods.
1. SMS Text
2. Email Delivery
3. Hand Delivery option aka a PDF
When the gifts are brought in to be redeemed they will either be a text, email, or PDF. But they all have one thing in common- a gift card code! The gift card code is all you need to redeem Gift Local gifts.
