Classic Plus Program

The Checklist to Starting Your Scrip Program
All the features of the Classic program, with the addition of inventory of the most popular physical gift cards that are not available in electronic options. Your organization purchases gift cards that members buy most frequently and makes them regularly available for immediate purchase at a scrip store. Participating families have the most options because they can order any electronically delivered scrip or traditional gift cards online, and buy select gift cards right at your organization. Adding inventory makes impulse buying easier for participating families, and reduces their need to plan ahead.

Additional benefits of a Classic Plus scrip program include:
  • On-site stock of most popular cards.
  • Highest earning potential.
  • Great for programs that can make an initial investment to purchase inventory, or for established programs that are ready to grow more.
  • Families love the convenience of buying physical gift cards immediately from your store.
  • Advanced scrip software to manage your inventory and earnings.
  • No cost to enroll, nominal annual subscription fee for advanced scrip software for inventory management.
