Spas Exceed $20M in Online Sales Via SpaBoom's Instant Gift Certificates

SpaBoom's Instant Gift Certificate platform has enabled over $20M in online sales for spas, salons and massage therapists. The company announced having enabled $10M of sales as of October, 2007—a number which has doubled in the few short months since.

"More of us are shopping online as a matter of course," said Bill Bice, founder of SpaBoom. "Life is hectic, yet we want to give special gifts. Instant Gift Certificates for spa services provide the perfect solution to life's gift giving quandaries. Gift buyers shop at their convenience, often at the last minute since over half of the gift certificates sold before each holiday are sold within 48 hours of the event."

Over 2000 spas in the U.S. and Canada use SpaBoom's platform for e-commerce. Sheer economics and customer convenience serve as key motivators for the spas. Automatic gift certificate fulfillment means spas generate revenue without requiring additional personnel. At the same time they add convenience for their gift buyers—all that's required is a computer with Internet access, and buyers can shop around the clock, even when the spas are closed.

At a time when gas prices continue upward and environmental responsibility has become a necessity, not a luxury, purchasing a special gift while containing one's personal carbon footprint strikes an ideal balance for spas' Instant Gift Certificate buyers.
