The online gift certificates are available at no startup costs or extra fees to merchants who wish to participate in the program. They can be customized to match the design of the merchant website and are available in the US, UK, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and Switzerland in the six different currencies that PayPal offers– US Dollars, Pounds Sterling, Canadian Dollars, Australian Dollars, Euros and Japanese Yen.

“More and more businesses depend on gift certificates to boost sales as consumers increasingly opt to give certificates or gift cards in lieu of traditional gifts,” said Stephanie Tilenius, vice president of merchant services for PayPal.

To set up a gift certificate program, businesses add a “Buy a Gift Certificate” button to their Web sites. PayPal offers account management tools to help merchants access, download and print reports for gift certificate purchases and redemptions.

Merchants can decide the denomination options that a customer can select, and proceeds from the sale of gift certificates will be moved into the merchant’s available balance at the time of redemption.
