Online Gift Vouchers offer retail SMEs much needed working capital during the COVID-19 crisis.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, retail outlets are under severe pressure and many face bankruptcy or long term closure. For businesses that have seen a major disruption or have been forced to close, promoting and offering online gift vouchers is one of the best short-term options for bringing in revenue.
The GiftVoucher tool from eosDublin and the enterprise blockchain Europechain, allows both supporters and customers of retail businesses to buy vouchers immediately which can be redeemed during the crisis and after, providing cash flow now for products, and services in the future. Retailers can choose to promote or discount the vouchers to bring in revenue now, which can provide them essential support during these trying times.
The voucher system comes with a comprehensive sales dashboard with real-time sales, monthly sales reports with the ability to drill down, and an ability to forecast incoming redemptions. The system can also be used to track performance, redemption and refund ratios, as well as, a breakdown of sales by the member.
