What does Payitforward.cc do?
Payitforward.cc serves as a gift card fulfillment platform for Pay-it-Forward programs. Our customers want to help their communities by ordering gift cards from local restaurants and then electing to Pay-it-Forward by offering those gift cards to those in need or on the front lines of this pandemic. We post to social media and our email lists that someone has offered a gift card on a Pay-it-Forward basis at local businesses in your community.

Does the entire gift card amount go to local businesses?
With the exception of credit card processing fees charged by Square® the entire amount of the gift card goes directly to a local food/drink business. Payitforward.cc charges the customer a $1 platform service fee in addition to the gift card amount in order to pay for expenses such as servers, hosting, email and SMS costs as well as keeping our team working.

Who manages the Pay-it-Forward portion of the gift card?
Each local business handles the Pay-it-Forward request themselves. Payitforward.cc and our customers want local business to survive and succeed in this environment. We believe that is best accomplished by restaurants running their own business and us helping to keep them working. We’re in this together.
