Irish Programme Manager The Gift Card Company has selected Wirecard Card Solutions as its new card issuer.

Wirecard Card Solutions, a UK-based card issuer, will serve as card issuer for The Gift Card Company’s new ‘FromMe2You’ Gift Card. The multi-store gift card was first rolled out in Ireland in November 2015.

The card can be bought online or in store at participating Topaz stations across the nation and can be used at more than 3,000 retail stores in Ireland.

A number of Irish retailers, department stores and day to day spending outlets have signed up to the scheme including Smyths Toys, Avoca and CompuB, House of Fraser, Debenhams and Shaws Department Store, O’Brien’s Wines, Butler’s Chocolate Café and Boots.

Users of the new card can view their gift card balance and their transactions online.

Wirecard Card Solutions director of sales and business development Brian Lawlor said: “We’re delighted to be working with The Gift Card Company. The gifting market has evolved significantly over the last number of years with consumers and corporates demanding more and more redemption options. With hundreds of retailers to choose from on the one gift card, they are providing a convenient gifting method with a wealth of options to spend.”
