NationalLink & GivePay Bring Kiosk-Like Functionality to ATMs
With the Holiday Season officially upon us, it is time to start thinking about the gift cards we need to buy. NationalLink is pairing up with GivePay Gift Card Mall to add the convenience of buying and sending gift cards at the ATM. This innovative application is rolling out just in time for the holidays, making it easy for consumers to purchase last minute, birthday, Christmas, and “just because” gifts. Users can also add money to Prepaid Wireless Top-up accounts.
Participating ATMs will offer a variety gift cards for restaurants, theaters, clothing stores, and more. The sender chooses the gift card they want to send with the amount and can even add an animated greeting. The sender then enters the phone number of the recipient and the gift card is sent directly to their phone. Recipients can redeem cards instantly or save for later. Customers can even add some cards to your Apple Pay or Google Pay wallets.
The service is quick, convenient, and secure: GivePay uses billing zip codes to complete transactions in addition to pin numbers. The ATM application uses TLS 1.2 encryption and ensures card numbers are never stored. This means you can remain at ease when using the application as if you were to withdraw cash.
As technology advances and more applications become available, it is important to keep your competitive edge. This application turns your ATM into a retail kiosk where customers can purchase gifts and add money to their Pre-paid wireless phone plan. With the ability to purchase gift cards from hundreds of different restaurants, retailers, and specialty stores, you can attract a wider variety of customers to your ATM – and subsequently to your retail store.
In a recent post, we mentioned how participating in Withdraw Cash Wednesday can draw foot traffic to your ATM: Consumers are encouraged to withdraw the cash they need for Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and every other weekend throughout the year on Wednesdays. Adding GivePay to your ATM helps your customers purchase the gift cards they need, add money to their Wireless Top-Up accounts, and withdraw cash for the weekend. Therefore, you expand your customer base while increasing customer satisfaction.
