Create a Community Gift Card

Promote local shopping in your town

Yiftee for your community

Work with Yiftee to create an eGift Card that works at all the shops in your town

Community Gift Card

  • A community gift card “links together” the participating merchants in an area. Via an easy to promote, dedicated town landing page, gift senders send gifts to friends, family, employees, clients or prospects that are delivered instantly via email, text or Twitter.
  • Town cards are multi-use and can be redeemed at any single location or multiple participating merchants until the full value of the card is spent.
  • If a business accepts MasterCard, they can redeem a Yiftee eGift Card with no changes to their POS. Each merchant gets their own custom-branded Yiftee eGift Card in addition to the community card.

Easy To Implement

  • You need twelve or more participating merchants in your town. They each pay the monthly subscription rate for their custom-branded eGift Cards and there is no additional charge to the merchants or the town to create the community card that works in all of their businesses.
  • Each participant gets up and running with their custom-branded eGift Card, which is a simple process that generally takes under 30 minutes.
  • Choose your community gift card name and market it. Some examples are “Menlo Park Gift Pass” or “Livermore Valley Wine Country Gift Pass..” Put the link on your Chamber website, town Facebook page and other public websites so people can click to purchase your community cards online.

See how Danville has used Yiftee

The Town of Danville had been searching for a Town-wide gift card solution to promote local shopping, dining and gifting in our community. Yiftee’s online gifting service is the first business to provide such an opportunity, with no cost to the town administration.

Why Keeping It Local Is Important

  • Money spent locally stays local. When you buy from locally owned businesses, significantly more of your money stays in your local economy and supports community groups.
  • The local one-of-a-kind businesses where you live, eat and have fun are a major part of your local community’s character and identity.
  • Local businesses are more invested in the community’s future, and less likely to leave. These businesses generally require less investment in infrastructure.
