In response to the COVID-19 pandemic LongIsland.com has partnered with Operation Main Street and eGifter to help small business sell more gift cards.
The project’s mission is to help small businesses all over the United States sell more gift cards, providing additional cash flow to save these companies and the jobs they create.
The project is made possible by gift card technology and services provided by eGifter of Huntington, Long Island. The eGifter Platform™ has historically served large national and regional retailers, however the technology was leveraged to support small businesses in this unprecedented time.
The Operation Main Street team has already found and listed thousands of small businesses across the country. There is no cost for a business to join the Operation Main Street directory. If a company sells their gift cards online and wants to list their website in the directory they simply fill out the form on the site.
“eGifter is a small company located on an actual Main Street on Long Island,” said Tyler Roye, CEO of eGifter. “Our team feels the pain of small business everywhere and welcomed the opportunity to share some of its resources to drive this initiative.”
“In this time of uncertainty, with people out of work or furloughed, we want to help small businesses survive and thrive on Long Island by selling gift cards now, which can be used when businesses re-open. LongIsland.com is a resource for the community in both good and challening times, now is certainly a challenging time,” said Andrew Hazen, Publisher of LongIsland.com. “I am very happy to partner with eGifter, a powerhouse tech company, to help develop this free Gift Card site and support Long Islanders and Long Island businesses in every way we can.”
The site was built to help any town or chamber of commerce on Long Island to find and promote the gift cards available from the small businesses in their town.
