Frequently Asked Questions


What kind of Web sites use the service?
All kinds! Big and not so big, there's room for everyone at

Our goal is to offer our customers the widest variety of merchants and items available from the common to the very uncommon. After all, our customers come here to Give Anything!

Why should I use the service?
How about to make money? Our clients spend a lot of money on our gift certificates and all they need is a place to spend it! When you become a Member Merchant we work hard to put your Web site in front of our customers. We make it easy for our customers to shop by category and we provide a search engine so they can find specific products and your Web site as easily as possible. When they do find your site, we give them a direct link from our Web site to yours. We want to give you our customers!

Exactly how does your service work? Gift Certificates can be spent at hundreds of stores on the Web. When our customers are ready to spend their gift certificates they visit our site and we refer them to our Member Merchants with a direct link. Our customers can then spend their gift certificates with any of our Member Merchants simply by entering their gift certificate account number and expiration date just like a credit card.

How much will the service cost me?
The service will never cost you anything! At no time will you ever write a check or make any payment to The real advantage to this service is that we only make money if you make money. When a customer visits your Web site and spends a Gift Certificate, we take a commission on that sale. That's really all there is to it!

In addition we take no commission on any money spent by the customer which is above the amount of the Gift Certificate. Many customers will spend far more than the amount of their gift certificate and the extra amount is 100% yours!

How do I get paid by
After one of our customers spends a gift certificate at your site all you need to do is visit our Merchant Login page and provide us with the gift certificate account number and the amount of the sale. We will verify the validity of the gift certificate online and you ship the merchandise to the customer. That's it! Your payment will be on its way!

How long does it take to get paid by
We understand that cash-flow is a major concern for most Internet businesses and for that reason we make it a point to pay our merchants as quickly as possible. Our pay periods end on the 1st and the 15th of each month and payments are sent on the 5th and the 20th.

How hard will it be to configure my Web site to accept your gift certificates?
Nothing could be easier! In many cases, using batch processing, the entire process takes less than five minutes. We also offer real-time configuration where our service works just like a credit card, authorizing charges in real-time. In addition, many popular shopping cart programs and online site building services have the payment option built right in!

After you register with our service you'll get a confirmation e-mail which contains easy instructions on configuring your site. And if you have any problems, we offer technical support via e-mail and telephone.

Can I limit what items a customer can purchase with a Gift Certificate?
We require all of our Member Merchants to accept our gift certificates on every item they offer on their Web site. It would simply be unfair of us to send our customers to your Web site only to have them find they can't purchase an item they really want.

Are there limits to what my Web site can sell with your service?
Almost none! We only require that you comply with all federal, state, and local laws and we don't allow our Member Merchants to offer adult oriented material or weapons.

Is there any long term contract or commitment required with your service?
What if I find that it doesn't really work for me? There is absolutely no contract or commitment when you join If you are ever unhappy with our service just let us know and we'll remove your information from our Web site (of course, we really can't think of any reason this would happen)!
