Guusto aims to provide maximum flexibility when it comes to delivering gifts. We understand that your employees may be located in different locations and have varying levels of access to technology. We also take into account the possibility that you may want to give gifts in person instead of delivering them digitally.
When sending gifts, you can choose from 3 delivery methods to send out your gifts:
1. Send via email and/or text message
This is the most convenient and commonly used delivery method. We send the gifts for you, and the recipients receive the gift in their email inbox or as a text message. Automatic reminders are also scheduled for one week after the gift being sent and one week before the end of the claim period for their gift.
2. Print or Export gifts
Print: You can skip entering recipient contact details, place the order, and print out Guusto gifts that contain a unique gift link. You can then pass out the physical gifts in-person. The recipient would simply type the link into any web browser to claim their gift to their Guusto account (like any gift sent by email), and then choose where to redeem it.
Export: You can skip entering recipient contact details, place the order, and export the gift links to an excel sheet. You can then send the link using your own internal communication channel or mail merge system (e.g. Outlook, Mail-chimp). The recipient would simply click the link to claim their gift to their Guusto account (like any gift sent via email), and then choose where to redeem it.

3. Print merchant gift card
You can pre-select the merchant for your recipient and simply print a merchant gift card. This is a great option for recipients who are tech adverse as it allows them to use the gift card without ever having to deal with computers (of course, they miss out on choosing where to redeem it and it can potentially be lost since they never claim it to a Guusto account).
Bonus Delivery Tip: Pay-It-Forward Gifts
When sending gifts, there's an option to turn on the Pay-It-Forward feature, which mandates that the initial recipient re-gift the gift to someone else. For example, you may want to deliver a gift to each store manager, for them to pass on to the employee of the week or a high value client. You can then track where all gifts end up on the Gift Reports > Order History page.
