The card is designed to encourage consumers to spend money locally – in turn supporting local businesses that are emerging from the impact of the Covid-19 restrictions.
Thanks to support from the Scottish Government, the card – which also has the backing of SGF – will be rolled out this summer.
The Gift Card is completely free for businesses to receive payments through, utilising the MasterCard network. Businesses simply need to undertake a quick two-step process to register.
When the Gift Card is officially launched, all registered businesses will appear in an online directory and customers will be able to spend their Gift Card at any of these businesses. Scotland Loves Local can also provide stores with promotional materials including window stickers and social media content.
