A digital approach to gift cards

With the Gift Card industry landscape shifting from physical to digital, this collaboration with Qwikcilver enables Wpay to serve their customer needs in the growing digital gift card space.

The gift cards brands in operation include Woolworths Supermarket, BIG W, Countdown, Dan Murphy’s, BWS, EG Fuel, ALH, and the popular Wish Gift Card which is redeemable across all the above brands.

Officials from Qwikcislver said that they are delighted to expand their presence into Australia and New Zealand through the partnership with Wpay.

Qwikcilver's highly scalable platform delivers 24x7 uninterrupted service processing at very high TPS during the peak season.
