26 Jan Smart Transaction Systems Integrates with Shopify to Introduce Point of Sale Gift Card Solutions for E-Commerce Retailers
Integration Enables Customers to Purchase Digital Gift Cards for Small Business Retailers When Making Online Purchases
Smart Transaction Systems (STS), a leading provider of gift card and customer loyalty programs for retailers, today announced its integration with multinational e-commerce company Shopify.
With the new integration in place, customers can now access a gift card solution that is compatible both in their brick-and-mortar retail outlets as well as online. Similarly, merchants that use Shopify to conduct their e-commerce operations can use the full suite of STS gift cards and e-gift cards embedded within Shopify’s interface. The integration will bring its gift card program to online point-of-sale transactions.
“In 2021, small businesses need a gift card solution that works across both retail and online channels,” said Ray Clopton, President and CEO of STS, “Shopify users can use our platform to sell gift cards in their brick-and-mortar stores, on LocalGiftCards.com as well as social media. Our beta sites are representative of the types of businesses that can benefit from this integration. They use Shopify online, but they have two or more different POS systems and use our platform to sell physical and digital gift cards through their websites and social media accounts.”
Because STS is integrated with over 180 different point-of-sale systems and gateways, the new integration allows merchants to have the flexibility they need to implement gift card programs, without restricting them to a particular environment or system.
Business owners using Shopify can easily implement a digital gift card program through their existing Shopify account, streamlining the rollout process and helping independent business owners to uncover additional revenue streams and bolster customer retention.
STS offers a suite of services designed with small businesses in mind, providing customer loyalty programs and mobile marketing services. Its solutions include a range of digital options for small to midsize businesses, including customer loyalty programs, mobile marketing services, gift card programs and e-commerce capabilities.
Shopify Inc. is a Canadian multinational e-commerce company headquartered in Ottawa, Ontario and provides a proprietary e-commerce platform for over 5 billion online stores with its retail point-of-sale systems. The integration will combine Shopify’s adaptable and user-friendly ecommerce capabilities with the customer retention capabilities STS enables for its clients.
