You need to enter the name of a gift card and select a type. There are 2 types of gift cards available:
- Amount: the amount of money that the user can spend after purchasing a gift card.
- Product: When a user activates a gift card, a specific product is automatically added to their account. For example, a “1-month subscription” to a gym.
Setting price and tax info
Congratulations on creating the gift card! However, it is not active yet, as there are some important fields that need to be filled and the card needs to be enabled. The fields to fill are:
- Amount: the amount of money that can be spent.
- Price: the gift card purchase price.
- VAT: value added tax (can be 0 if your company is not a VAT payer).
- Validity period: how many months the card is valid.
Gift card title and description
Before you enable the gift card, you need to add translations for the title and description. The minimum requirement is to enter the title and description in English. You can also add other languages to increase sales of online gift cards, as some people may not speak your native language.
