Gift Certificates - How to Purchase
Purchase and creating new gift certificates is simple and easy. When the Gift Certificate system is enabled, a menu item will automatically be created called "Gift Certificates" and will provide the proper link to your store for purchasing Gift Certificates. You can rename or resort your menu item from the Menu Builder. If your store does not display the Gift Certificates link, you may not be using the Menu Builder system. You will need to edit your custom template and add a static link that links to "/giftcertificates/".
The Gift Certificate form on your store also provides a simple way to check existing balances of certificates.
Once the checkout is complete and the payment has been received for the order, the recipient will automatically receive an email containing the gift certificate details. ** This automated email can not be customized.
After adding the gift certificate to the cart, it will be treated as a normal cart item. The gift certificate can be edited or removed at any time.
Creating a Gift Certificate from the store admin
From the "Active Gift Certificates" page, click on the "Create New Gift Cert" button to create a new certificate. New gift certificates are immediately activated and emailed to the recepient.
