Gift & Stored Value Cards|
The Gift and Stored Value Card (SVC) markets have
experienced explosive growth over the past 5 years and due to the
wide range of applications for these products, this trend is likely
to continue for years to come. While this sector of the payment card
arena continues to expand rapidly, marketers have already begun
seeking ways to increase margins from these card accounts.
Interestingly, although these products appear to be similar to credit
and debit cards, the dynamics of gift and svc create a new and unique
set of challenges for marketers. Accounts are transient, users are
often unidentified and a different set of financial levers exist.
Finding ways to engage the consumer and increase margins are at a
premium. The mobile communication channel presents a number of
opportunities to help marketers in this space. RocketBux has

payment card industry. Examples of these solutions include:
