Giftango wins Best Prepaid Innovation award
Portland, Ore., June 25, 2012 -- Giftango Corporation, the global leader in eGift card fulfillment and promotions technology, has won the “Best Prepaid Innovation” award for their Premium Turnkey E-commerce Solution at the Prepaid Awards Canada on June 7th, 2012.
With their inaugural ceremony in Toronto, the Prepaid Awards Canada commemorated innovation and best practices within the prepaid industry. This year, the Best Prepaid Innovation category was awarded to Giftango’s Premium Turnkey E-commerce Solution as a product that demonstrates originality with the potential to enhance the prepaid market by benefiting businesses and consumers.
Giftango’s Premium Turnkey E-commerce Solution enables retail merchants to sell gift cards from their website, providing consumers with a single integrated digital, physical and social media gift card purchasing experience. With Giftango’s solution, eGift Cards are delivered instantly via email, SMS text or Facebook wall posts. They include features such as image upload and video, and can be sent immediately or scheduled up to three months in advance.
Retailers who use the Giftango solution benefit from last-minute sales of gift cards which are made possible by instant delivery. When selling plastic gift cards from a website, online purchases drop precipitously in the 5 days prior to the gifting event because it is too late to deliver the gift card on time. Giftango’s solution eliminates this problem with digital delivery, capturing revenue for the retailer that would otherwise be missed. Consumers love it because they can purchase and send an eGift card up to the last minute during the holidays.
“We’re thrilled to win the ‘Best Prepaid Innovation’ award at the Prepaid Awards Canada,” said David Nelsen, CEO of Giftango. “The purpose of our solution is to allow everyone – from small to large retailers – to utilize digital gifting with the most advanced features available in the market, at a price point and development timeframe that works for them. The Giftango team works hard to create easy to use and innovative solutions within the prepaid industry, and it’s a great honor to be recognized for this achievement.”
