Using Gift Vouchers and Certificates Cheques
To enjoy the full benefits of our system, it is important to apply a little research into the wide range of goods and services available. This can be done by perusing a hard cover directory available from Empire Trade offices, or by checking out the online directory from our website.
It is then simply a matter of contacting the member from whom you wish to purchase the goods or services required. Remember that the Certificate Cheque you have will need to be supplemented with cash when purchasing goods or services, as Empire Trade members all trade on a part cash and part trade basis. It is also important to take into account that each of our members is in business in their own right. Gift Certificate Cheque recipients are not to place any undue pressure on our members, such as unreasonable demands in relation to the trade content of articles or services, or related to the delivery of such articles or services.
