A gift card is a code consisting of letters and numbers, such as HAPPYBD_GC12, that allows customers to buy gift cards and send them to friends by email or regular mail. Store owners can create unlimited gift cards with different pricing models (product type) and easily track all purchased cards.
How gift cards work on the storefront:
The gift card code can be applied in the cart or at checkout to cover the total amount of the order.
In the catalog, a gift card is presented as a separate type of product.
The gift card code is activated after the order is invoiced. If the order is not paid, the receiving customer cannot use the gift card.
Accounts for gift codes are created to track the balance of a specific voucher. A store administrator can manually adjust the balance.
