Gift card providers are offering value-added solutions to gain market share in the corporate segment in Belgium

Corporate-focused gift card offerings are one of the key sectors that gift card providers are targeting in Belgium. With corporate adoption of gift cards growing globally as well as in Belgium, providers are looking to offer value-added solutions to gain market share in this segment.

Monizze, one of the leading gift card players in the country, offers innovative gift card solutions to both corporates as well as individuals. The firm offers 3-in-1 gift cards (meal, eco, and gift), which provide employees with added benefits in Belgium.

The publisher expects more individuals and corporates to adopt the 3-in-1 gift card solution over the next four to eight quarters. This is projected on the basis of the expansion of the eco vouchers list. Notably, in 2021, the National Labor Council expanded the list of products that can be purchased using the eco gift card voucher.

The publisher expects more gift card players to focus on value-added services for the corporate segment, as gift cards are expected to gain rapid adoption among organizations over the next four to eight quarters.

Gift card companies are entering into strategic partnerships with merchants to drive sales in Belgium

To further boost the sales of gift cards, gift card companies are entering into strategic partnerships with merchants to drive sales and growth in the country.

Monizze, has a wide network of merchants that accept gift vouchers as an alternative payment method. This allows consumers to make purchases with their gift cards at more online and offline shops, therefore, boosting the adoption of the payment method among consumers in the country.

The publisher expects the trend to continue with more providers partnering with both online and offline merchants in the country over the next four to eight quarters.

Recovery in the e-commerce market in 2021 expected to boost gift card market in Belgium

In 2020, the total turnover of the e-commerce market declined significantly in Belgium. Due to the global pandemic, consumers bought fewer services online but ordered more products. While consumers have shopped more online compared to the pre-pandemic times, the average order amount decreased subsequently.

However, in 2021 the market recovered to some extent, and stable growth in the e-commerce industry also supported the growth of the gift cards industry in Belgium. Moreover, the global supply chain crisis led inventory shortage is also expected to support the overall growth of the gift cards industry in Belgium over the next four to eight quarters. With more shoppers shopping online in the country, the publisher expects the trend to continue from the short to medium-term perspective, which will continue to drive Belgium's gift card market.

The ability to buy cryptocurrency with gift cards is driving the growth of the gift cards market in Belgium

There is a growing interest in cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin among consumers globally, and Belgium is no different. This rising popularity of digital assets coupled with the ability to buy cryptocurrency with gift cards is also supporting the growth of the gift cards market in the country.

Some of the players that are offering consumers gift cards for buying cryptocurrencies in Belgium include paxful.com and Bitrefill.com. The growing usage of gift cards as a way to buy digital assets such as Bitcoins is expected to drive the growth of the gift cards industry in Belgium over the next four to eight quarters.
