Choose How Families Order Physical Gift Cards

There are two ways families can order physical gift cards:

  1. Online orders

  2. Proxy orders

What Are Online Orders?

Online orders are the best way for families to order physical gift cards since families create an online account and place their own orders. This way, there’s less work for the coordinator.
Families place orders at on desktop or on mobile.

What Are Proxy Orders?

A proxy order is an order you place on behalf of a family, after they’ve filled out a paper or online order form.

Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of each order collection type:

You Can Also Place Bulk Orders for Your Organization

A bulk order is when your organization pays up front to have physical gift cards on hand, then you sell them to families or use them for your organization’s office supplies, to buy gifts for teachers and coaches, and more. Since the order isn’t connected to individual families, you can’t track family earnings.
