Earn More Money with a Gift Card Program!

Share This Post

It’s a common scenario: a new employee is working at your business and a potential customer asks about the price of a particular item.  If the customer is satisfied with the price of the item, the sale can proceed.  But what happens when the customer is not happy with the price?

If the salesperson is seasoned, they know that now is the time to push! But I’d like to introduce an amazing tool that can help to keep money inside your cash drawer and bring your clients back for more.

If an item is marked $99 with a minimum price of $79, you have $20 spare to play with.  Of course we want you to keep the $20 potential discount inside your cash drawer.  The salesperson can offer a 10% discount to help close the sale, bringing the sale price to $89, still leaving a $10 spare. Let’s put that money to good use by offering a gift card to the client.

The customer benefits by purchasing the item at a discounted price, but also receives a gift card.  This client gains value because they have not only already shopped once at your business, but they are also providing their information to return again.

The benefit to you is that there is nothing at your kiosk or store for $10, so they will naturally spend more money at your business, or they’ll give that card to a friend and tell them about their great shopping experience with you.

And the best part of this?  These cards print from the same receipt paper built into the Nova Point of Sale software and costs you nothing but the paper itself.

You should implement and push your employees to use this simple, effective concept to generate more revenue, avoid discounting, and promote additional sales from your clients!  Remember, people don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it – be inspired!

“To Whom It May Concern,

Let me take a moment,out of my very busy day to review my experience of Sebastian Chaviano.
Sebastian is a dream customer service/technical support person. He’s extremely professional and nano-second responsive in every interaction. We’ve even worked on a chronic issue where I learned that his perseverance and patience are also outstanding. Over my 33 years of working in Silicon Valley, I’ve rarely met someone as easy with which to work as Sebastian.

That said, over the past 3 months of getting to know Nova POS, for the first time, I’ve also worked with Frank, Jeffrey, Jose, & Tomer – all provide the immediate service and answers I’ve required. You have a great team at Nova POS. Keep up the good work.”


My name is Mert Firat, and I am the proud owner of multiple flourishing retail chains in a rapidly expanding big city. Since 2008, Nova has been a cornerstone of our ability to operate in a such a fast-paced urban environment. The top-notch customer support team at Nova has consistently exceeded my expectations, ensuring any and all concerns are promptly addressed. The live-support feature has been a lifesaver on several occasions, with expert assistance just a click away. The user-interface of the software is incredibly easy to learn, operate, and teach new employees. This hassle-free experience is imperative for the entire company,  from the CEO to every newly hired employee. What has truly set our experience apart are our account manager and technical support manager, who have been a game-changer in streamlining the process and finding creative solutions. We could not be happier with Nova, and would not be here today without the outstanding experience we’ve continuously been having for the past 16 years.

Kind Regards,
