Understanding API Plug-Ins For Your Prepaid Card Promotions

Prepaid cards are one of the top incentives for just about every kind of incentive program. They can come in physical or digital forms, for the convenience of your incentive program participants. Prepaid cards can be reloadable, custom branded, and ordered in batch or bulk. Prepaid cards can be used for health programs, rebates, channel sales incentives and more. To successfully use prepaid cards in your incentive program, you’ll want an API. 

An application programming interface(API) are routines, protocols, and tools for building software applications. An API expresses a software component in terms of its operations, inputs, outputs, and underlying types.

Lastly, when offering savings in the form of rebates, be sure to include online redemption and processing.

There are three characteristics that an API Plug-In needs when dealing with Prepaid Card Promotions.

1: Real-Time Analytics & Dynamic Architecture 

Real-time analytics not only adheres to participant’s need for instant gratification, but also, leverages instant analytics for you. Watch the leads generate and your business grow and manipulate those results by adding or subtracting new campaigns.

Having a system that is dynamic is crucial to prepaid card promotions. You’ll need a plug-in that can be manipulated to multiple platforms. Are you able to share on social media? Does it work with your website? And can it be processed in an email campaign? Are your participants able to connect to you quickly and efficiently? These are questions you should ask yourself in your incentive program planning stages. 

2: Easy to Use

Your plug-in should be easy for your participants and simple for your employees to work with and capture vital information. There are countless businesses that don’t focus their energy on setting up the right API for their field and end up with unsuccessful programs. Do the research beforehand and look to see what your competitors are doing in their processes and protocols for generating leads. Make it simple for your customers and see their interest in your business go through the roof.

3: Understand Your control

The last characteristic is as simple as confidence. Have faith in your promotion and understand that you have the control to change or grow your company with new routines and software that you implement in your company. A little confidence in yourself and your program technology provider can push your business a long way.
