How to customize a gift card on my Shopify store

Customer care is one of the most crucial aspects of all businesses, especially those that are online. As your customers don’t deal directly with you face-to-face, it takes more to gain their trust to shop on your online store.

Offering your customers exclusive discounts, premium features, and gift cards are a great way to encourage customers to shop on your store.

They give off a prestigious vibe and make the customer feel that they are getting exclusive benefits. With this, the customer becomes loyal to your store and makes regular purchases.
