Each company creates their unique digital gift card that is stored on the MicroGifts platform. Attached to their own MicroGifts account, businesses have 24/7 access to send unique digital gift cards to their staff, clients, and customers. MicroGifts can be edited with each send, ensuring each recipient receives a personalised digital experience when they activate.
