WHAT IS LOCAL CURRENCY?
Local currency is a gift certificate, but it’s also more than just a gift certificate. It’s a community wide gift certificate. This means that one certificate can be spent at a variety of different places within your specific town. Just like other gift certificates, it’s great for those people that are hard to buy for, for holidays, gifts, thank you’s, congratulations…and so much more. But the best part, the recipient gets to choose where to spend it. And the money stays in your community.
You define community. Whether you’re an organization, school, merchant association, non-profit or even a single merchant hoping to reach new customers, you decide what defines your community.
With a community wide gift certificate, your entire community reaps the benefits. Local currency creates a circle of investment within communities. By benefitting one organization within a community, it turns the entire community into beneficiaries. And it’s continuous.
Easy. Efficient. Automated. Good for your entire community.
