What’s new at QwikCilver - Retail Distribution Initiative

As a part of our ongoing journey in pioneering and evangelizing the Gift Cards and e-Gift Cards category, we at QwikCilver are in the process of setting up a Non-traditional Retail Distribution System that will enable retailers to sell and activate third-party Gift Cards from their outlets. This is a completely new value creation channel, entirely at the service of our retail partners to help create new footfalls and drive sales. You will hear more about this from us over the next few days.

This is a big milestone for us, and on this momentous occasion we would once again like to thank all our valued partners for their continued faith and trust in us!
