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, and by user, during the purchase. Let’s see how.
Site administrator can easily override the default image of the gift card in product edit page, by selecting the new image in “Choose image” field.
In the second instance, if no image has been selected, it will consider the product image that, if set, will replace the default one provided by the plugin.
To give users the possibility to set a customized image for the gift card they are purchasing, it is essential to enable “Custom image” in the general settings dashboard.
In this case, users could insert a customized image through the “Customize” button.
Users also have the possibility to select the image of the gift card in a gallery created and made available by the administrator. For further details read this post.
The logo inserted in the gift card can be changed and/or hidden by setting up the fields of the “Template” tab, in the plugin settings dashboard.
According to the style of the selected template, the position of the logo is different.
The plugin allows to insert and organize 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 templates correctly.
First enable the “Enable photo gallery” option in the plugin settings panel. The option can be overridden from each product page.
Go to “Media > Gift Card Category” and insert all the categories of gift card templates you want to create.
Insert a new image in the “Media library” and edit it. 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.
Now users can select a template, using the “Choose design” button, they will see the templates you’ve made available.
