prepaid and payments processor and distributor in the U.S., today announced
the launch of a new epay Gift Card Center, which is now available to retailers
in time for the holiday season.

epay’s Gift Card Center showcases over two dozen national brands, including a
blend of “mall” cards and online/catalog gift cards. By offering these cards,
retail stores benefit from opportunities for additional sales and solidify
their role as a “one-stop-shop.” Gift card issuing merchants benefit from
epay’s large national distribution network of over 50,000 retail locations and
low cost of entry into the gift card space.

The epay Gift Card Center appeals to a wide audience because of its variety of
cards, including epay’s Visa^® gift card, which can be used everywhere Visa
debit cards are accepted; merchant gift cards such as Columbia Sportswear,
Overstock.com, Omaha Steaks^®, Great Clips, Showcase Cinemas, Regal
Entertainment Group, Elektra de Mexico and Coldwater Creek; and content such
as epay Dining Deals, an online portal with access to nationwide coupons for
both restaurants and grocery. The new offering complements epay’s growing list
of entertainment cards, which includes paysafecard, Canta y Llama, Microsoft
Points and Xbox LIVE Membership. A mix of PIN-on-receipt, which gives the
consumer a “green” alternative to an actual card by providing them with a PIN
that can redeemed online, and traditional physical gift cards are available.

“Gift cards have seen double digit growth over the past few years, with a
large percentage of sales occurring during the holiday season,” said Matt
Waldie, Managing Director, epay U.S. “We are very excited to have established
direct relationships with these card issuing merchants in time for the 2012
holiday season, allowing us to provide a diversified, appealing gift card
offering to our retailers and, in turn, the consumer.”
