Zaui offers the ability to sell Gift Certificates (either Open for any dollar amount configured, or Activity-Specific, for a particular tour and number of passengers). A Gift Certificate Notification contains the information necessary for the recipient to redeem the certificate.
In this article, we will walk you through how to create this notification.

Creating a Gift Certificate Notification
- From the navigation bar, select Settings > Manage Notifications>Email/SMS.
- Select Gift Certificate Notification from the notification options on the left panel.
- Name your Notification (example Company Name - Gift Certificate).
- Don't forget to Enable it so it will send out automatically to the purchaser every time a Gift Certificate purchase is made.
- We recommend you add Back Office Bookings (not a portal) as well as the Default Portal in the Send Notification Only For These booking Portals section. This will ensure that anytime a Gift Certificate is purchased (whether it was done online or by one of your staff members in the back office) the gift certificate notification will send out.

If you are selling an Open Gift Certificate, the notification will include the value of the gift card.
Activity Gift Certificate Email Template
If you are selling an Activity Gift Certificate, the notification will include the image that is set-up for that particular activity, as well as the activity description.

Smart Tags are heavily utilized with gift certificate notifications as gift certificates can be personalized, containing the recipient's name, messages for the recipient, a redemption code, and an ID. The example below shows the Gift Certificate set-up (with smart tags).
