Established in 2011 by Firoz Khan and Cory York, GCI network began as a single destination to sell gift vouchers at giftcardsindia.in. Today, GCI Network has partnered with over 300 brands to empower its prepaid products within GCI's 100,000 point-of-sale distribution network. Over a period of time, from just a destination gift card store, GCI has evolved to create its own products, technology and distribution in the prepaid space. GCI offers its extensive catalogue of prepaid gift cards to several distribution partners across India.
How did GCI take its small, retail gift card business to one of the largest gifting networks in India?
