Gift Cards for Sale -adding value with Waverlite

Gift cards are the new Dollar cards. And I mean that literally. The CBN has given a directive that you can no longer use your naira card for dollar transactions. The limit has been 20 dollars for a while now, which means many people were not even using it. However, half-bread is always better than non as those small payments our naira card has always served the purpose of paying for are no longer possible. 

What does this mean for your business?

The CBN directive has further opened the mind of people to actively seek alternatives to pay for things they need to get in dollars. Now imagine your business has a solution to the dollar payment challenge. Won't that mean higher sales conversion and customer acquisition for you? 

While turning to dollar cards will naturally come to mind, that is not the only alternative. They can also pay with Gift cards. Instead of paying with your card on Amazon, you can pay with an Amazon gift card; renew your Apple Music subscription with your iTunes gift card; or pay on Playstore with the Playstore gift card. That is why I say gift cards are the new dollar cards.
