Why Should You Offer eGift Cards For Your Business?
eGift cards are a great way to not only increase your customer loyalty and engagement, but also create additional revenue streams. Gift card programs pull significant revenue for restaurants and promote brand awareness, but boring plastic gift cards have grown old in the age of sustainability and augmented reality.
By offering personalized virtual eGift cards in your restaurant, customers will be able to conveniently gift their friends and family members with an exciting present. Additionally, eGift cards assist in increasing bills meaning bigger tips for servers. Everyone wins when it comes to virtual gifting!
Personalized and Exciting
What’s been making plastic gift cards stale is the missing personalized aspect. With virtual eGift cards, restaurants can give guests the opportunity to choose wrapping paper, add a personal video message AND AR technology. That’s right, restaurants can include augmented reality of the dish and dining room in their gift card program for gift recipients to walk through.
It doesn’t get more exciting than that. Take gifts to another level with next generation technology!
Fun and Flexible
Picture this: wanting to send someone a small thank you, only to find that there aren’t any personal, budget-friendly options to choose from. Fortunately, there’s a better way.
With Uptown Network’s eGift card program, Uptown Gifts, your guests can send a curated dining experience or a micro-gift. Both options allow guests to send a fun, flexible and personalized virtual gift. Empower guests to purchase gifts for occasions big and small.
Each gift is impactful, and the micro-gifting platform encourages add-on purchases when gift recipients go to claim their gift.

Make it easy to get the word out about your restaurant via virtual gifts. It’s a built-in referral program by empowering current guests to bring new customers to your business through virtual gifts. New guests = more revenue.

Great Guest Experience
“Wow, this is an awesome gift!”

A standard digital gift card will only send the amount of money given, but Uptown Gifts give so much more than just a dollar amount.
