By default, each virtual gift card created on the site has the image provided by the plugin. This image can be changed both by administrator, during the creation of the “gift card” product, in the plugin settings, and by user, during the purchase.
Let’s see how.
Please, note, this option is not available for physical gift cards, but only for virtual gift cards.
Site administrator can easily override the default image of the gift card in the product edit page, by selecting the new image in “Product image” field.
Also, is possible to set a predefined image in the plugin design options.
To give users the possibility to set a customized image for the gift card they are purchasing, it is essential to activate the option “Enable custom design upload” in the plugin design options.
In this case, users could insert a customized image through the “Upload your photo/design” link in the gift card design section.
Users also have the possibility to select the image of the gift card in a gallery created by the admin. For further details read this post.
The plugin allows inserting and organizing different gift card images in categories. The gallery could be available to users during the purchase of the gift card.
Let’s analyze all the essential steps to configure the gift card images correctly.
First, you have to activate the “Enable the gallery” option in the plugin design settings panel.
Then, go to the “Image categories” tab in the plugin settings and create all the categories for your gift card images.
To add images to the category, you have two options:
- Either use the “Add images” upload button inside the category (this is both possible when you create the category or when you edit it at a later stage):
- Or you can add it from the “Media library” and edit the category it belongs to. Choose media “list” display mode to get a better overview of the “gift card categories”.
Select the category you want to associate with the image you have created.
If the “Media library” is in grid mode, you will need to write the category slug in the gift card category input.
Also, it’s possible to manage the gift card category in the “Media library” bulk action.
Now users can select a template in the “Choose your image” section from the gift card product page.
This section will include a “View all” button, that opens a modal window with all the predefined designs grouped by category.
You have the possibility of insert the shop logo in the gift card templates sent to the recipient.
You can find the options to set up a logo for all your gift cards in the Style tab in the plugin settings (YITH > Gift Cards > Style).
Additionally you can also add the shop logo after and/or before the gift card image. If you enable these options, you will be able to select the alignment of the logo between left, center and right.
