Sterling Gift Card Service Now Available

Chalfont, PA Datacap Systems announces certification and availability of Sterling Payments’ Gift Card services for Datacap dial-up and IP payment solution users. Fast, 2-second IP gift and prepaid card transactions are now available to POS and ECR systems accepting gift cards and using IPTran or GIFTePay (whether they are also using NETePay or not). Sterling’s dial-up gift card service is available to DataTran and DIALePay users. Sterling Payments has developed a very strong and innovative gift card program that is beneficial to retailers of all sizes, including smaller retailers, a segment not well serviced by many major gift card programs. This underlines Sterling Payments’ and Datacap’s continued development of features important to the rapidly growing integrated payments market. With more retailers interested in offering gift card to their customers, more POS/ECR systems adding gift card functionality and Sterling Payments’ high level of support and innovative dealer oriented programs, this is an important addition to the Datacap payment solution interface offerings.


Gift cards are proven to increase retailer traffic and average ticket, while also providing new revenue and promotional opportunities, all while reducing ‘gift program’ expenses. Strong benefits to consumers and retailers make gift card a very desirable feature. Fast, IP-based gift card transactions enhance customer service and store efficiency. Having gift card transactions integrated into the POS/ECR system provides additional retailer benefits, streamlining operations and enhancing store and cashier accountability. Dealers benefit from selling the additional gift card feature, additional revenue opportunities and improved customer retention.
