With new digital gift vouchers from Clicks, it’s easy to give essentials to those in need

| Innovation and technology

Under lockdown, many South Africans are struggling to afford the basics, from soap and sanitiser – crucial to prevent the spread of Covid-19 – to sanitaryware.

 Now, new digital gift vouchers from Clicks make it quicker and easier than ever to send money for essential hygiene items, healthcare services and over-the-counter medicines to those who need it most. 
 
“We wanted to offer our customers a safe and secure way to support their friends, relatives and vulnerable communities during these difficult times,” explains Clicks Chief Operating Officer Rachel Wrigglesworth. “With social distancing, our new digital gift vouchers are more than just convenient – they’re responsible, too. They can be bought online and sent direct to someone’s cellphone in a matter of minutes, you don’t need to leave your home or stand in a queue –  and you can send help even when it’s not possible to get there in person.”  
 
Clicks digital gift vouchers can also be used to access primary healthcare services in any of 195 Clicks Clinics across South Africa. Early detection and treatment of chronic lifestyle diseases can be lifesaving, especially during the pandemic. 
 
When you buy a digital gift voucher, your chosen recipient – anyone with a local cell number – will receive a voucher code via SMS, which can be used immediately at their nearest Clicks store. This makes it possible to send help in an emergency or even give a gift for a special occasion (with no need for a physical giftcard). 
 
Digital gift vouchers are available on the Clicks website or from the Clicks app. Anyone can buy them, whether as a registered user or a guest, for redemption in-store. Select from set denominations between R50 and R1000, or choose the exact amount you want to give, starting from R50.  
 
Pay using your credit or debit card, or via EFT– it’s simple and secure. Because there are zero fees, your recipient will receive and be able to spend every cent you send them. Vouchers are valid for three years. 
 
To gift a Clicks digital gift voucher redeemable at over 700 Clicks stores nationwide, visit clicks.co.za or download the Clicks app from Google Play or the Apple App Store.
