Retail Dimensions is excited to announce full gift card integration between NCR Counterpoint and BigCommerce, making it hassle free for the customer to easily redeem dollars on a retailer’s ecommerce site or in the retail brick and mortar stores interchangeably. This allows the customer more control of their shopping experience, creating potential for customer loyalty and more revenue for the retailer.
What is this RDi Feature?
This feature allows the customer’s choice of buying and redeeming in either ecommerce shop or in store. This feature offers a seamless integration between NCR Counterpoint and a BigCommerce purchase, tracking, and redemption of gift cards (NCR Counterpoint) and gift certificates (BigCommerce).
- Do you offer gift cards in your brick and mortar store on NCR Counterpoint POS and want to let customers redeem them online in your BigCommerce store?
- Do you offer gift certificates online in your BigCommerce store and want to let customers redeem them in your brick and mortar store on NCR Counterpoint POS?
An integration such as this allows more options for the customer buying from your store to spend the dollars in the way they want, and in this changing day and age, shopping has become just as virtual an experience as it has traditionally been a tangible one. By allowing the customer to essentially buy credit at your store by purchasing a gift card or certificate, you are inevitably inviting them back to check out more items that are on their wish list, which enables more interest by the shopper, leading to – more spending!
Retail Dimensions has taken this demand for flexibility into practical use for full gift card integration between NCR Counterpoint and BigCommerce.
Does this image look familiar to you?
If so, and you are using NCR Counterpoint, RDi has a new integration you will not want to miss!
Wouldn’t it be nice to let a potential new customer who has been gifted a certificate via BigCommerce by someone most likely already a faithful shopper come into the store and see all your items in person and become a loyal shopper themselves? What better way to create this opportunity by integrating your gift card system in your POS with your ecommerce gift certificate system.
RDi’s integration takes NCR Counterpoint’s gift card module and BigCommerce native gift certificate functionality, and allows them to communicate interchangeably as one feature moving between cyberspace and retail space, allowing your customer to do the same!
“Gift Card integration has traditionally required the shopper to leave the site they are on to input their gift card and retrieve their balance and then return to the site. Now the shopper stays on the same site in BigCommerce to review balances and make purchases using one or more gift cards.”Kurt Beeken, President, Retail Dimensions
