Gift Cards are an effective tool for improving cash flow as well as encouraging customer loyalty and promoting your business.
Open Gift Cards are issued as a dollar amount applicable to any goods and services of the issuing company. They are not restricted to a specific product, activity, or service at that company.
Steps to Creating an Open Gift Card
|Before creating your Open Gift Card, you will need to enable your Gift Certificate Notification (so that the purchaser receives the Gift Card via email which they can then present to the recipient). Check out this article to find out how to set that up.|
- From the navigation bar, select Activity > Create Gift Cards
- Enter the number of GCs to create.
- Set the Value for each Gift Certificate.
The Value and Quantity fields cannot be changed once the Gift Certificate is processed.
- Set the Expiry Date (this will automatically be set for two years into the future).
In some regions, it is illegal for a Gift Certificate to have an expiration date. System expiry dates are used for accounting and bookkeeping purposes to determine what Gift Certificates remain. Any Gift Certificates that have gone unredeemed can be honoured following the expiration date.
