Problems & Solutions
Gift cards offer a new gifting option
There are a lot of holidays and anniversaries requiring people to find a gift for their beloved ones. However, this gift searching process is not easy because sometimes it is really hard to know precisely the recipient’s preference. Buyers can be hesitant to choose one or several items from your store, but purchasing gift cards is easier. Offering gift cards is a great way to motivate customers to still buy from your store, and the recipient may even spend more later.
Gift cards retain current customers and attract new customers
If you want to increase revenue by encouraging customer loyalty and expanding the customer base, offering gift cards is one of the things that you must do. Once customers purchase your gift cards, they are more likely to come back and even spend more than the value of the gift cards. Moreover, when they give their gift cards to other people, they actually help you attract and persuade new potential customers.
Control your gift cards better
While the default Magento 2 is not fully equipped with flexible gift card management tools, our program will give you almost everything you need. You can take control of your gift card system, from generating unlimited gift codes to setting up the price and value of gift cards as well as usage conditions.
Gift card personalized design
Personalization plays an essential part in creating good experiences and long-lasting relationships with customers. With the Mageplaza Gift Card extension, shoppers are free to design their own version of gift cards, which enhances their experiences and gives an excellent impression to the recipients.
Personalized gift cards
Customers can quickly choose ready-made gift cards to save time. However, if they want to create their own version, they can easily do so by selecting any background images and writing their messages.
Ready-made design blocks
Admins can design gift certificates thanks to blocks in the backend. They just need to drag and drop and resize those blocks.
Easy gift card design
Merchants are able to choose designs premade by the Mageplaza Gift Card extension. There are popular templates for holidays, for example, Christmas, Easter, New Year, Thanksgiving, etc. Customers can choose these templates, which will be loaded to preview.
Gift card delivery options
Digital versions of gift cards can be sent via different social platforms, such as Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger, Viber, or Tango. After sending, there will be an SMS notification informing them about the delivery status. If your customers prefer an offline version, they can print it out at home.
Convenient gift card usage
Gift card delivery can be tracked quickly thanks to the notification email to the sender. In this way, the sender can check whether the recipient has got the gift card or not. After that, recipients can check the details on the account page or use the gift card by copying and pasting the code at the checkout page. It is also easy to manage gift card codes via the My Gift Card page, where they can check the status or redeem gift card codes.
