About Us

DataCandy, a Leading Loyalty and Gift Card Solution Provider in Canada and the United States

DataCandy started out in 2002 as a small tech company whose software was used at only a few hundred locations. Today, we’ve grown into one of the leading gift card and loyalty solution providers in Canada and the U.S. and are trusted by thousands of retail and restaurant locations. In 2019, Datacandy was acquired by Paystone.

We’re committed to providing our clients with:


From the moment our clients sign up and all the way through their partnership with us, our team will always be there to answer questions and resolve any issues that might occur.


Whether consumers use their cards online or in person, our clients can rest assured that everything will run smoothly with the fraud-prevention measures and automated system updates we’ve put in place.


Our software is compatible with most payment terminals and points of sale, so our clients don’t have to invest in new payment systems or lose customer data from their old provider.


To ensure that our clients continually benefit from the latest gift card and loyalty functionality and stay ahead of the competition, we invest millions yearly in research and development.

Our Customers, DataCandy’s Raison D’être

While our project and account managers help our clients launch their loyalty and gift card solutions step by step, our development team is always hard at work updating and improving our software, so our clients — and their customers — can have the best possible user experience and results.

Our Partners, Some of Our Most Valued Relationships

At DataCandy, we’re always looking to bring greater value to our customers. Building strong, strategic partnerships with some of the industry’s major point-of-sale, payment terminal and gift card mall providers means that our software can almost always integrate with the technology that our clients use.

Our Employees, the Foundation of Our Business

Although we work with software and code, our company is founded on human values. We want our employees to love working here, so we do our best to create a supportive and inclusive work environment where out team can feel at home and where careers can flourish.
