How it works
1
Sign up and start selling
We provide you with:
- a custom website where your customers can purchase high-value gift cards,
- access to the inKind mobile app for managing and redeeming gift cards, and
- electronic and physical marketing materials to help sell the gift cards.
2
Manage gift cards through our app
Check your total gift card liability and guests' balances with the touch of a button. You can also add extra credit or deduct credit if you want to provide a guest with a seamless "no bill" expereince.
3
Guests redeem credit through the app
No more lost cards or uncertain balances. Gift cards are exclusively redeemed through the inKind mobile app, allowing a guest to check their balance any time, any where. Tips are charged to the credit card we have on file, taking the awkward out of tipping when using a gift card.
4
Guests share credit
Passionate guests can share part of their gift card balance with friends and family, amplifying your reach. You can also grant them bonus credit to share with friends to encourage them to make referrals, and reward them with bonus credit when they do.
Why this works
The best form of marketing is a word-of-mouth referral from a trusted source.

The inKind mobile app allows you to identify your best customers and incentivize them to refer their friends. With the click of a button you can give them credit to share with friends to encourage them to try you out, and also reward your best customers with bonus credit when their referrals do come in.

Friends of your best customers are likely to be awesome referrals because they will share similar characteristics and spending potential as your best customers...after all, they are friends for a reason!

My lifelong dream since growing up as a girl in Columbia has been to open a world class bakery. inKind helped fund our Italforni deck oven and opening inventory expenses.
