At Gift Card USA, we have put together a selection of great low cost programs designed especially for small to medium sized retail stores and restaurants. Here are our pricing options:

Program A - Starter Package

Our Low Cost Starter Program Gets You Running in a Few Days

Great Pricing: $199.00 Startup

Now even the smallest mom and pop merchant, or the medium sized merchant who wants to dip their feet in the water just to get a little wet, can easily afford to start and maintain a great gift card program. We call it the Starter program because it allows you to order a small amount of just 100 cards to get your gift card program off the ground. We will even ship your cards in just 3 business days so that you can have your program up and running in less than a week. Then whenever you are ready you can order our great priced custom cards in quantities of 500, 1000, or more.

Here is what you will receive when you sign up for the Starter Program.

  • 100 standard cards selected by you from among a selection of excellent designs that we have found to be the most popular in the past.
  • Your company name imprinted in your choice of standard type styles and colors.
  • Custom text on the back of the cards.

  • Card numbering and encoding of magnetic stripe
  • Our free Web Terminal for performing all your transactions

Program B - Custom Card Program - 1000 Custom Cards!

Simple Pricing: $500.00 Startup and then your Choice of Monthly Plans

The Custom Card Program is our most popular program and what is ordered by most of our merchants who want to start offering a custom gift card or loyalty card program to their customers. It is a complete program so that when your box arrives at your business you simply unpack it and your program is ready to go.

First, we start by designing and printing your cards. These are completely custom cards that you design with your logo, color scheme, and wording. Just email us the design and we will create your cards with the same great look as used by the national chains. The front of your cards will be high gloss full color (4/1) and on the back will be your custom text in black along with an encoded magnetic strip and a unique card number printed on each card.

Included in your Custom Card Program pricing is the programming of your credit card terminal with the Gift Card USA program in order to be able to process the cards. At the top of this page you will find a link to all our compatible terminals and POS systems. In addition, we provide all of our merchants with our free Web Terminal so that you can perform all of the same functions on your PC which is useful for using in your back office or home office for your website sales.

Here is what you will receive when you sign up for the Custom Card Program B.

  • 1000 custom cards completely customized with your logo, design, colors, and custom text on the back of the cards.

  • Account setup, terminal programming, training, and user guide.

  • Useful online reports for keeping track of all your gift and loyalty card activity

  • Our free Web Terminal for performing all your transactions

  • Free Online Balance Checker with no transaction fees for you and your customers

  • Our exclusive free modules for sending emails and instant SMS text messages

  • Cards shipped 15 days from proof approval

So in review here is what the Custom Card Program B will cost:

Program C - Custom Card Program - Smaller Quantities and Lower Prices!

Perfect for Mom and Pop Merchants who Want to Look Like the Big Guys

Many merchants have told us that they would love to have custom cards but just don't have the budget or customer base to justify ordering a large quantity of cards. We understand and as a result we responded by coming up with a special package where you get the exact same quality of custom cards in quantities of just 250 or 500 cards at a price we don't believe you will find anywhere else. Everything else that comes with Program B will be yours in Program C.

250 Custom Gift Card Program: $300.00

500 Custom Gift Card Program: $400.00

Flat Monthly Pricing: Select the Level Below Which Best Meets Your Needs

* Above Pricing includes all setup & printing fees, and ground shipping is just $25.00

Program D - Custom Card Program - Combo Gift and Loyalty Card Program

Start Both a Gift and Loyalty Card Program for Well Under $1,000

If you would like to offer your customers both a gift card and a loyalty card program, then this is the best route to go. For just $900.00 we will print up 500 custom gift cards and 1000 custom loyalty cards both with their own unique design that you provide to us. Then all you need to do is select a level from our Flat Monthly Pricing table below and both programs will share the same level. It starts as low as $19.00 per month for 100 transactions and we even have a plan for unlimited transactions for an amazing $39.00 which is less than the cost of a tiny ad in the local newspaper. This is the perfect program if you are budget minded so you don't have to worry about accumulating charges every time the card is swiped.

Monthly Pricing Options

We know that one size does not fit all so we have put together a variety of excellent options to make it easy for you to select the ongoing program which best fits the needs of your business. Choose from one of our flat rate monthly pricing where you select the level which is closest to your own average monthly transactions. Please keep in mind that a transaction is every time the terminal accesses the network to add value, redeem value, check the card balance, etc. You are welcome to change your level every 6 months. Each of the levels includes both gift cards and loyalty cards.

Flat Rate Monthly Pricing: Select the Level Which is Right for You and Feel Free to Change Your Level either Up or Down Every 6 Months

Level 1: $19.00 -- Up to 100 Transactions per Month

Level 2: $29.00 -- Up to 250 Transactions per Month

Level 3: $39.00 -- Unlimited Transactions per Month

Add 15 Cents per Transaction for Each Overage per Month for Levels 1 and 2

Example - If you sign up for Level 1 and Process 150 Transactions in a Month you will pay $19.00 + $7.50 for the Overage for a Total Cost of $26.50

Do You Need to Purchase a Terminal?
