From the Christmas Tree to the Phone, Kanoo’s Digital Gift Cards make Holiday Shopping Easier

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, just not the one that we’re used to. Parties, family dinners, celebrations, and even gift-giving will be different this year.

Why? Because the rapid spread of COVID-19 has forced us all into a new reality, one where we never leave home without a mask, regularly sanitizing our hands, and keeping a safe distance away from others.

Local digital payments platform Kanoo is here to make life easier by giving you the perfect gifting option this holiday season.

We know that at the heart of most Christmas festivities here in The Bahamas is gift-giving between loved ones. However, the process of getting that perfect gift can be stressful and time-consuming, sitting in heavy traffic, finding no parking space, standing in long lines, and waiting for what could feel like an eternity to have the items gift-wrapped.

Life has been stressful; life has been challenging, but gift shopping is one task that doesn’t have to be. For the consumer, purchasing a Kanoo digital Gift Card saves you time, money, and a headache. It also ensures that the recipient gets exactly what they want when they want it. And for the merchant, it’s a safe, easy, and cashless revenue stream. The best part is that businesses can sell their gift cards 24/7 despite operational hours.

It’s what led Kanoo to conduct the largest Gift Card campaign to revive the local merchants during a pandemic.” Due to sporadic lockdowns and social distancing protocols, Kanoo’s Marketing Manager Glenique Knowles believes this ten-week initiative will help Bahamian consumers and businesses.

“Our Gift Card campaign offers huge convenience for users since everything is digital and can be found right in the Kanoo app. Kanoo users can purchase a gift card anytime! It’s safe. It’s easy. It’s cashless. Imagine leaving the comfort of your home to stand in long lines to purchase a gift that someone may or may not like. This year, Kanoo is making gifting extremely simple and hassle-free.” she explained.

“As for our merchants, we are beyond ecstatic that our Gift Card campaign can assist in reviving local merchants during a pandemic. Whether your establishment is open or closed for business, selling gift cards in the Kanoo app would be the perfect solution to increasing sales, reducing costs on creating physical gift cards, attaining new customers, and driving repeat customers through the door.”

The number of merchants who sell gift cards in the app continues to grow day by day.” They include Super Value/Quality Super Markets, Balmoral Club, Milo Butler Mart, Big Picture Paint, and Sip Studio, Cheesecake Heaven, Miniso Bahamas, Wally’s Convenience Store, Something’s Different, Twisted Lime, and so much more.  The fintech’s services are available on the following islands: New Providence, Grand Bahama, and Long Island.

“2020 has forced businesses and Bahamians to become more creative, patient, and changed the way we handle business. We wanted to ensure that consumers and merchants had ample time to purchase or sell gift cards with Kanoo. November usually kicks off the holiday season with Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The hype spills over into December as we approach Christmas. Unbelievably, sales still happen after Christmas. Shoppers are returning items, redeeming Gift Cards, and purchasing items that they forgot.” according to Knowles.

“Kanoo’s digital Gift Cards are perfect for giveaways, stocking stuffers, secret Santa gifts, and last-minute gifts,” she added.

The time to go digital is now. Download the Kanoo app and purchase a Gift Card anywhere, anytime and support local merchants. The campaign ends on January 15th, 2021. For more information, email
