In a new partnership with online greeting-card company Egreetings Network, Ecount, a provider of shop-anywhere online gift certificates and personal online payment accounts, will offer its Webcertificates on egreetings.com. Customers can now go to one site to shop for gifts and cards, since Webcertificates--available in $15, $25, $50 and $100 denominations--can be attached to online greeting cards directly on egreetings.com. A message alerting card recipients of their gift is included in the online greeting. Webcertificates are redeemable at any online merchant or via a pre-paid, plastic Webcertificate Shopping Card at bricks-and-mortar retailers that accept MasterCard.
