Dashboard – Create and manage gift cards

Create a gift card

Home > Premium version guide > Create a gift card

If you want to create a new gift card directly from the back-end without creating a new order, go to Gift Cards > Dashboard and click on the “Create code” button.

Create gift cards from backend

Insert the identification code to associate with the gift card or enable the option Generate automatically a code when creating a gift card post that you can find in the tab General > General settings to create the code automatically.

You can easily generate a random gift card code by clicking on the Generate code button, which will create a new code based on the gift card code pattern defined in the plugin settings.

How to generate gift card code

To associate the purchase value to the gift card, you must configure the following fields:

  • Purchased amount: gift card amount
  • Current balance: current purchasing power of the gift card.

With regards to “virtual” gift cards, you must enable the “Digital” checkbox and complete the required fields.

PLEASE NOTE: If no email is inserted in the “Recipient’s email” field, the system will associate the gift card with the site administrator’s email address.

If it has a delivery date set, then, it will be automatically sent. Yet, if it has no delivery date set, you will just have to go back to the Dashboard and click on the email icon: the email will be sent immediately.

Edit a gift card

It is possible to edit all gift cards registered on the shop from the back-end in the gift card dashboard.

How to edit a gift card

You can manually edit all the gift card details.

In this way, you can correct possible mistakes users have made during the purchase, such as a wrong email address or delivery date.

Send gift cards with bulk actions

If you need to simultaneously send multiple gift cards without having to apply this action one by one, you can use the bulk action available in the plugin Dashboard.

Bulk action on gift cards

This can be useful when manually creating some virtual gift cards or after importing them via a CSV file and you want to send them all with just a few clicks.
