What are gift cards?

In recent years, the revenue from gift cards has increased significantly in the Netherlands. This increase is directly related to the customer’s desire to select an appropriate gift whenever it suits him/her. With Buckaroo, you can accept popular gift cards quickly and easily as a payment method in your webshop. Such as the fashioncheque, VVV Giftcard or the Webshop Giftcard.

How does paying with a gift card work?

The consumer selects the product in the webshop and follows the regular order process. During checkout, the consumer selects the option to pay with a gift card. If the gift card balance is not sufficient, the customer is notified immediately. The remaining amount can be paid with a different payment method. Consumers can also pay with a second gift card (with sufficient balance). It doesn’t matter if this is a gift card of the same brand or a different type of gift card, as long as they’re both accepted by the webshop.

Example: online payment with a VVV gift card.
