On Wednesday, July 13, 2022, the Partnership for Haddonfield (PfH) launched their Downtown Haddonfield Community E-Gift Card to help support local merchants in the business district. The electronic-based gift card allows merchants to process the voucher with a manual credit card entry. E-Gift Cards can be purchased at yiftee.com.
Having partnered with Yiftee, an eGift Card service that keeps local dollars local with simple Community eGift Cards, PfH has streamlined the community gift card process. Now, customers can purchase e-Gift Cards and have them sent directly to the recipient via email/ text. The recipient can then redeem the Mastercard® backed electronic gift card at any participating location. The merchants then process the e-gift card by manually inputting the card number and the charge is available to the merchant the very same day.
“We’ve taken Downtown Haddonfield’s greatest gift and made it better,” said PfH Executive Director Michael Marciante. “Now, Haddonfield residents and visitors can give their friends and families the perfect gift with the click of a button. It’s a great way to keep dollars local and to support the business community.” E-Gift Cards can be sent via email and text message, with the option of sending them on a specific date.
Until now, the PfH offered paper town-wide gift cards that could later be redeemed by businesses.
“We realized that forgoing any amount of money for any amount of time was a burden on our business community;” Marciante noted. “So much that some merchants didn’t accept the paper gift cards. Now, businesses see the gift card amount redeemed on the same day. Any business in Haddonfield, NJ that accepts credit cards can join the new program.”
While the gift card is available on the recipient’s phone or other electronic devices, the gift card can be printed and redeemed in the same manner.
“It’s going to require some ‘getting used to’ on everyone’s part, but the e-gift card can be printed by anyone who isn’t computer-savvy,” said Marciante. “We only ask that they check their balance before visiting Downtown Haddonfield merchants at https://app.yiftee.com/gift-card/haddonfield–nj-haddonfield.”
