Redemption Stores make it simple to redeem products with paymentless checkout so you can say “yes” to more customers and gifting programs. Redemption Stores are perfect for many different occasions, because they don’t collect payment, sales tax, or shipping costs from the shopper. Instead, shoppers will have a custom code or random, 16 digit code to enter that will give them access to the store. In this blog, we’ll cover Redemption Stores and their seemingly endless possibilities.

What is a Redemption Store?
If you are familiar with our Pop-Ups, Redemption Stores will have a similar feel. However, they have some key differences. Instead of a normal site that is open to the public, shoppers will have to enter a code to gain access to a Redemption Store. And next, there is no payment or payment information collected at checkout. Instead, shoppers must redeem a specific product by code. This store type is perfect for just a few or even thousands of shoppers thanks to their quick set-up and launch, simplified checkout experience, and easy-to-use features.
Functionality – You control the value of codes!
Redemption Stores are all about control. And with a Redemption Store, you have the ability to create custom codes. Custom codes allow you to create a personalized code as an alternate option to the default, 16-digit numeric code that’s automatically created. This allows you to personalize the experience, make it easy to remember and share, and efficiently manage and organize redemption codes.
Custom codes can include anything from the recipient’s name, email address, team, department, and more – making it easy for companies, schools, teams, and organizations to order products via redemption stores. Our system can generate the codes for you or you may choose to upload your own codes into the store. From there, you can assign the custom code. Remember – codes are typically only good for one use per shopper!
So the shopper has placed their order. What happens next? You can easily keep track of all of the codes in the store, as well as who they belong to. There is also transparency when it comes to viewing which codes have been redeemed for each product. Lastly, the admin will also be able to see the dates each code is added and redeemed, and the order number attached to that code.
If you’re wondering whether or not a Redemption Store would benefit your customer specifically, the answer is probably yes! Redemption Stores have countless uses for a wide variety of clients and programs, so keep reading to discover how you can take advantage of them.
Team Uniforms & Equipment
With Redemption Stores, ordering team uniforms, equipment, and even apparel has never been easier. This is a great payment option if an order has already been paid for and you simply need a way to collect order information from players or parents.
- Club Sports
- Does your customer need a quick and easy way to collect orders for a club league sport? Redemption Stores are ideal for this type of scenario, especially if the uniforms or apparel have already been paid for upfront.
- K-12 Sports
- Many school sports programs have quite a tight budget. With that being said, Redemption Stores are the perfect low cost option so your customers can stay focused on what really matters. You’ll hardly be thinking of budget restrictions when Redemption Stores are such a cost effective solution.
Employee Recognition & Incentives
Redemption Stores are a simple way to recognize employees and encourage satisfaction and retention in the workplace. There are many occasions to celebrate including sales goals, milestone gifts, work anniversaries, and so much more. For example, If your customer has employees who are constantly meeting their goals, Redemption Stores are an unsurpassable way to say “Thank you!” This makes the shopping experience unique and rewarding to the individual since they have the opportunity to choose from premium gifts they actually want – like high-end company-branded merchandise coolers, tumblers, technology, and more.
Acknowledging hard work is important and shows that employers truly care about employee achievements and milestones. Soon enough, everyone will be working towards their own big goals. That’s a win for everyone!
New Hires & Remote Workers
Another useful way to take advantage of Redemption Store is by utilizing them for new hires or remote workers at your company. Sometimes finding a way to distribute necessary work apparel and supplies can be difficult, but not anymore! With the ability to let your shoppers choose their own products the entire experience is more personalized, so they are guaranteed to love whatever they order and enjoy a seamless shopping experience.
This can also be a fun way to get your employees inspired to start their new job, especially if they are a remote worker who may not feel as much like a member of the team. Plus, a little company pride never hurt anyone.
Redemption Stores are the perfect solution for companies to thank a client, prospect, or even a partner with a branded gift. For example, a business wants to show their gratitude to one of their top prospects after they attended a sales pitch. Providing the prospect with a selection of high-end, premium gifts is a great opportunity to make an impact and show your dedication to working with them.
Holidays & Events
Redemption Stores are an ideal solution for a customer t who wants to give holiday gifts or seasonal merch. This gives each shopper the opportunity to choose exactly which product piques their interest without even paying on the storefront. Now that’s what we call simplicity!
For example, the holiday season is approaching at the end of the year and a company wants a way to show their gratitude to its employees. A Redemption Store is the perfect way to provide a selection of premium gifts to workers so they can choose a present they genuinely want. Another example could involve a company hosting its annual 5K race and needs a way to distribute one gift to each participant leading up to the race. This is a great way to generate excitement leading up to the event and have participants rep your company with branded merch and apparel.
There are endless uses for Redemption Stores! Many customers use them as year-round stores to distribute merchandise and branded apparel on a rolling basis. Whatever the season or the reason, Redemption Stores will be there for you – all 365 days of the year!
