The Gift Card extension for Magento 1 allows store admins to generate virtual, physical, and combined gift cards of custom design to be sent to customers. Depending on the card type, admins can choose between two delivery options: by post or online. The same functionality and even more options are available with Gift Card for Magento 2.

With this gift certificate extension for Magento 1, admins can tailor each gift card and/or certificate to a particular customer by means of personalized welcome messages. Before generation, each gift product email can be viewed in a preview mode.

Additionally, the Gift Card Magento 1 extension gives the possibility to flexibly manipulate with several gift card and certificate parameters, including their monetary values (fixed or open amounts) and expiration dates. The usage stats on all gift product codes issued within the module can be tracked in a separate grid.

Customers can apply their gift codes during checkout by entering them in the corresponding field. If required, they can use multiple gift codes for a single order.

This way, online merchants can flawlessly provide a gift certificate for Magento 1 users to encourage more purchases in their stores. Below, you can explore the features of this Magento 1 gift certificate extension in more detail.

Custom look

Admins can provide customers with several gift card/certificate design options to choose from. Optionally, they can attach a personal message to the Magento 1 gift certificate sent.
