GiftCardXpress (Elavon) Overview

GiftCardXpress using Elavon's processing engine

The Elavon version of GiftCardXpress is a closed loop gift card solution that uses Elavon, the 4th largest processor in the United States and Canada, to process their gift card transactions. It targets merchants who want to outsource much of the effort required to design and manufacture the cards and to process their gift card transactions. This solution is an excellent choice for merchants who require a solution that:

  • Provides them assistance, from an experienced organization, to deploy and manage their gift card solution.
  • Allows them to negotiate their fee structure directly with Elavon eliminating all 3rd parties.
  • Is reliable and cost effective.
  • Does not require costly system upgrades.
  • Will scale to support increasing higher transaction volumes without rewrite.
  • Runs on their platform and database server of choice.
  • Will coexist with their current back office and front office systems.
  • Supports many integration options.
  • Is implemented consistent with PCI DSS even though GIFT CARDS ARE NOT SUBJECT TO PCI DSS.

Merchants using this version of GiftCardXpress must purchase an Elavon merchant account and pay their processing fees.
