Are gift cards reloadable?

A common concern is the long-term usability of our custom gift cards. The short answer is, “yes, they are reloadable.” Cards with barcodes or magnetic strips are linked to an account. When used with a compatible POS system, they can be used over and over like currency. Contact one of our team members to learn more and find if your system is compatible.

Can I offer gift cards without a point-of-sale (POS) system?

Absolutely! One common approach is to sell one-time use cards with a face value printed on the face of the card ($5, $10, $25). An example of this are coupon cards. We also have a number of clients that keep track of balance in a spreadsheet, or come up with other creative solutions to avoid the complexities setting up a new POS system.

Can you help me select a gift card, loyalty, or membership software system?

Yes. Most point-of-sale (POS) systems and credit card terminals have the ability to accept gift cards. Getting started is often as simple as swiping the gift card or contacting your POS provider to activate the gift card module. Plastic Resource has over 20 years of experience manufacturing gift and loyalty cards for hundreds of software systems. We can help you determine if you POS system or terminals are compatible with gift cards and/or recommend you to one of preferred gift cards software providers. Contact us to start the conversation.

How can I be sure my software system is compatible with your gift cards?

Simply tell us the name of your software system and we will tell you if we can encode/number cards such that they will be compatible. In rare instances where we are unfamiliar with the software system, we will send you test cards, free of charge, to ensure compatibility. Contact us to learn more and find out if your system is compatible.

How do gift and loyalty software systems work?

Gift cards, loyalty cards, and key tags contain account numbers encoded on their magnetic stripe or barcode. Your point-of-sale (POS), loyalty, or membership system automatically reads the account number when swiped or scanned. This number provides access to the card's transaction history and and other account actions — including checking an account's balance, add value, and redeem value.

How do I know if gift and loyalty cards work on my point-of-sale (POS) system or credit card terminal?

Often times a POS system or credit card terminal have gift and loyalty programs built in. Simply contact us with the name of your POS system and/or credit card terminal and we can quickly determine card compatibility.

I don’t have a gift and loyalty card software system, can you help me?

Yes. Plastic Resource has over 20 years of experience manufacturing gift and loyalty cards for hundreds of software systems. We will refer you to a software provider(s) that is ideally suited to your business.

Will my gift cards from my old POS system work on my new POS system?

Yes, however, you will need to transfer the card balance information from your old point-of-sale (POS) system to your new POS system and, in most, cases have a card printing company like Plastic Resource re-number/re-encode the cards. Contact us to learn more.
