"Buyatab is pleased to work with Roots to enable their eGift card program to hit the ground running for the gift-giving season" - Derek Warburton, Buyatab's VP of sales and marketing.
VANCOUVER, BC, December 16, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Buyatab Online, a leading international provider of online eGift card services for medium- and large-sized businesses, is pleased to announce that it has been contracted by Roots, Canada's leading lifestyle brand, to implement a customer eGift Card infrastructure and marketing program to accompany its traditional gift card program.
The rollout of the eGift card program will be accompanied by a sophisticated international social media-based launch campaign designed by Roots to take advantage of the holiday season as an important time for gift card giving. Roots customers can now purchase Roots gift cards electronically - in the form of eGift cards - from the Roots website and have them delivered instantly to recipients via email or text message.

"Enabling eGift card purchase and redemption on roots.com is a natural extension of our successful traditional plastic gift card program. This new functionality provides another level of customer service to our valued online customers in 65+ countries around the world and in addition to better serving our in-store customers."
