1. How do I process Dane Buy Local gift cards?
Process gift cards the very same way a “credit” card transaction would be processed, always as a credit, not a debit.
2. What are the processing fees?
Fees for processing a gift card are similar to fees for processing other VISA credit cards.
3. Can gift cards be used for purchases that are not in-person?
Yes, gift cards can be used for online and telephone purchases if the card has been registered, and the address used is exactly like the address on file.
4. How does the consumer know how much is left on their gift card?
The balance of the gift card can be checked by going to or calling 888.399.7511.
5. Do the cards lose value over time?
A monthly inactivity fee of $2.95 may be assessed to the card after 12 months of inactivity until the dollar amount is depleted.
6. How can I process the gift card for my restaurant?
When processing a gift card at businesses where it is common for customers to leave a tip, up to a 20% tip tolerance may be added to the total of the bill. To ensure that the gift card will be accepted, check to see that the card has an available balance that is 20% greater than the total bill, so the card will not be declined.
