OverviewBack to top
Gift Card will allow the admin to create gift cards/certificates using the gift card product type. The admin can directly create multiple numbers of gift cards as products. This extension is useful for those who want to gift something to their friend, relative or an employee electronically.
Unlike coupons, a gift card makes consumers feel like they have money to spend immediately. Plus, over half of consumers using a gift card will visit more than once to deplete their card, providing additional upsell opportunities.
Use Case of Gift Card -
Digital rewards, specifically e-gift cards, are the most effective incentive today. They can be implemented in a variety of use cases and help users to gift them to others. Gift cards have more promotional power than marketing strategies like advertisements, which have a limited lifespan. Usually, buyers gift these cards to their known people so that they can purchase by using the gift card.
Features of Gift Card -
- Gift card product type included ensuring a smooth creation of gift cards via admin panel.
- The admin can create multiple numbers of gift cards.
- The Admin can set the number of days to redeem a gift card.
- The Admin can enable or disable the Gift Card.

Work-Flow of Gift Card -
After the successful installation and configuration of the module, the admin will navigate to "Products > Catalog". Here, the admin will create the gift cards by selecting the “Gift Card” product type.
Clicking the “Gift Card” will bring up the page to add a Gift card. Now, enter all the required information as is required for a regular product.
At the front end, on the gift card product page, the customer enters the e-mail address of the person to whom the gift card should be sent and then clicks the “Add to Cart” to go for the checkout. The customer can see the details of the gift card on the Order Review page.
After the order has gets placed, now when the invoice for this order gets generated, the person(whose e-mail address is entered) will receive the gift card on the same email address.
Now, when this customer(receiving the Gift card code) makes a purchase using the account that’s registered using the same email address(on which the Gift card is sent) he can redeem the gift card amount at the cart page. After that, the discount will be applied as per the entered amount by the customer.
Example: If the customer has a gift card of $1500 worth, then he can make use of all of it or use some of the amounts like $100 and keep the rest to use at a later time.
Benefits of Gift Card -
Admin Benefits -When store owner sells a gift card, they get paid in advance of any products or services rendered. The store owner can keep the cash until the card is redeemed. Not many marketing strategies will immediately improve cash flow as gift cards do.
Customer Benefits - Virtual gift cards are delivered via e-mail to the recipient, the benefits are that they cannot be lost and that the consumer does not have to drive to the bricks and mortar location to purchase a gift card.
