Create codes for physical Gift Cards:

Rise lets you easily create physical Gift Cards. Our system can export a CSV file with the codes and values you selected. This CSV file can be printed out using any printer near you, saving you money on shipping and long waits. 

Creating the codes for Gift Cards can be done with our Bulk Gift Card Manual tool, or manually with our Issue Store Credit button (if you are a small business).

Good to know:

  • You can create as many codes as you'd like within your plan limit. 

  • Designing your Gift Cards with your logo and branding can be done on your own or using a 3rd party company that has pre-made templates. Insert the generated codes to your designed cards (manually or through a 3rd party company).
