After being in the web industry for many years working with Day Spas, Salons, Bed and Breakfasts, and Restaurants we found there was a huge hole in the web strategy with most of these businesses. The majority only had an informational or brochure websites and were missing out on the financial benefit of being online. However, the cost of developing a custom shopping cart system to sell their gift cards or instant gift certificates was extremely expensive. It was difficult for some business owners to take the leap of faith without knowing if they would get a return on their investment.
Hence the development of TheGiftCardCafe.com which eliminates all barriers and allows business owners to start selling online without development costs. If you can add a link to your website then you can start selling gift certificates for your business online today! In fact, we took it a step further by developing various promotional tools that help business owners significantly increase their normal gift sales. View some of our success stories.
We strive to provide a powerful, easy to use, ecommerce system to help business owners turn their websites into a revenue generator with online Gift Cards and Instant Gift Certificate sales.

The most recent example of this evolution is the popularity of Daily Deal marketing companies like Groupon and Living Social. Consumers now expect companies to offer special daily deals which is why we have added a similar feature to our system. This feature gives business owners using our system the ability to manage their own daily deal offers without paying 50% of the sale to the Daily Deal marketing companies.
