Increase Retail Sales with Gift Cards

Share This Post

Are you using the power of Nova’s gift card feature? It’s easy to increase summer sales with gift cards, right from your point of sale!

Turn impulsive shoppers into repeat customers, increase your average invoice amount and stop more foot traffic with a great incentive!  Nova’s free gift card feature is easy to use and will help you grow your business now and through the holiday season.

Here’s a quick snapshot of how promoting more gift card sales and integrating with your POS will help you generate more sales revenue for your specialty retail business:

55% of gift card recipients require more than one trip to spend the balance.

It’s already hard enough to get traffic to your business, so having a 55% chance that they’ll be back again seems like a no-brainer. This gives you a great opportunity to build up repeat business and another chance to sell to them.

61% of gift card holders spend more than the balance of the card.

To most shoppers, having a gift card is like bonus money. They are very likely to spend more than they normally would on a product or service since they can apply the gift card to the balance–and will pay the difference out of their own pocket. This creates the perfect opportunity to upsell!

And, 75% of those shoppers that overspend will spend 60% more of the value of the gift card.

This 60% really adds up! Think about it.  If a shopper comes to your location in the mall with a $100 gift card, you could actually be ringing up a $160 transaction before they leave. That $60 will quickly add up, and will certainly impact your bottom line.

81% of consumers buy gift cards as birthday presents.

This is a really great opportunity for your retail business. If 81% of consumers are buying gift cards for friends and family, shouldn’t they be buying them from you?! Just imagine if your sales team asked each and every customer to buy a gift card for someone they know. It’s a tremendous opportunity to get new customers and repeat this cycle all over again.

If you focus on the big picture and make a big push on gift card sales this month you can propel your business through the coming months and have an explosive holiday season. Nova POS is the only retail point of sale proven to increase sales by 35% with powerful tools like gift cards. Click below to get a free trial today!

“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,
