What are Gift cards?
Gift cards are credit card sized smart cards that allow the giver to charge the card with a desired amount. The cards are generally to be used in specific kinds of stores or branches, like online stores, fashion- or entertainment stores, or theatres and cultural centers. Using Mollie, you can accept gift cards issued by all of the most used Dutch brands: Nationale EntertainmentCard, Webshop Giftcard, Podium Cadeaukaart, VVV Cadeaukaart, Fashioncheque and YourGift. You will need to have an agreement with these issuers, before you can accept their gift cards. When you are an authorised retailer, implementing gift cards as a payment method through Mollie is easy.
The Dutch gift card industry saw a 2-billion-euro turnover in 2014. Thousands of stores accept gift cards as a payment method, and many more shops sell them. Do you already accept them? Use Mollie to let your customers redeem them online as well.
