What do I do if I receive a gift check at my business?

If you or your employees don't have experience with Gift Check transactions, here is a quick how-to:

  1. Inform each person on your staff who is responsible for cash handling and customer that, as Grow Wabash County investor, your business proudly accepts these Grow Wabash County Gift Checks.
  2. To verify authenticity of the Gift Check, be sure to check the security features on the sample GWC Gift Check. (see right)
  3. Make sure the check is not expired! Gift Checks are good for no more than one (1) year after issuance.
  4. Gift checks are live checks and can be deposited as such. Simply deposit the Gift Check into your business bank account to receive the money.
  5. When the Gift Check is electronically scanned, do not return the certificate to the customer.
  6. The Gift Check is to be used for purchases of products/services of Grow Wabash County investors. They are not to be redeemed for cash, but change may be given. (Example: If a customer has a $5 purchase and pays with a $10 gift check, $5 in cash may be given.) Your business may also opt to offer the remaining amount of the check in store credit as opposed to change.
  7. This program will not interfere with your store gift card program.
