The new deal instantly increases the number of alternative payment options offered through Xsolla to 700+ and gives Xsolla’s game partners access to over 100 major gift card brands right in time for the holiday season. Xsolla previously offered game developers access to such gift cards as Subway, CVS, K-Mart, and a few others.
Now, thanks to cooperation with PayGarden, players of Xsolla game partners can use dozens of popular gift cards including: Walmart, Starbucks, Best Buy, Target, Gamestop, and Home Depot. The complete list of brands supported by PayGarden covers the majority of retail gift card volume in the US.
As gift cards will flood the market this holiday season, Xsolla and PayGarden make it easy for game developers to accept in-game payments from players, increasing conversion rates and driving incremental revenue. Players, in their turn, can take advantage of the extended list of accepted brands, unlocking value in their cards by redeeming them for virtual currency and goods.
With the US gift card market booming to the tune of more than $100 billion, Xsolla expects to help a lot of consumers get what they really want from the gift cards they received this year.
