I’m hoping to understand the process it takes for a merchant to set up a new CLGC program with a third-party, like Blackhawk.

– How do I ensure they’re accepted by my processor/gateway online and in-store?
– How do I setup my POS to be able to scan the barcodes?
– What information lives on the barcode, vs the magstripe?
– What logic prevents the barcode from being scanned/redeemed by another retailer?
– How does money move (e.g., from customer purchase of gift card, to redemption, to settlement to my acquirer bank)?
– Does the issuing bank live with Blackhawk?

Any diagrams/flow charts, or instructions would be greatly appreciated.
