The price of the gift card can either be a fixed amount or have variable amounts (including the manual amount option).

Fixed amount

For a fixed amount you decide the amount of the gift card. During the purchase, the customer will only see this price, there are no other options.

Variable amount

In case of a variable amount, the customer has the possibility to choose among pre-set amounts or manually insert the amount of the gift card.

To make this possible, you must enable the option “Enable/disable custom amount” in the plugin general settings.

You can also decide the minimal amount the customer needs to add to be able to purchase the gift card.

If you want to sell the gift card at a discounted price, enable the option Add a discount. Enter the discount precentage value and, additionally, a text.
