Many of my customers come into Chasing the Cheese to buy gift certificates to give to cheese lovers who live in the Peterborough region. As a small, independent business owner, I would also like to be able to sell gift certificates to customers who live far away, but want to buy for someone who lives locally. Unfortunately, that process can get somewhat tedious. The customer has to call in their credit card number and then I have to mail out the certificate as well as receipts. Being able to purchase a gift certificate online through GiveLo, (one that can be redeemed at Chasing the Cheese,) is both a simple and convenient process for those who are purchasing, as well as the local recipient who receives their certificate via email. GiveLo also helps me because I am unlike large companies who benefit from the economies-of-scale when dealing with the technical issues of online purchasing. GiveLo is straightforward, economical and locally run and assists in promoting local businesses in Peterborough.
GiveLo is an attractive, professional website that has given us the opportunity to sell gift certificates online. Set up was easy and the local/charity focus is great. Transactions are processed smoothly and interactions with the site administration has been terrific. I can happily recommend this service to other small businesses.
