How to create a “pre-printed” gift card

To create a physical gift card (non virtual), make sure that “Virtual“ is not checked. The product setting options are the same as the virtual gift card options. The only difference is, that there is no “email” field shown to customer, since the gift card will not be sent digitally.

By default, the system will associate a code to the gift card, after the order is completed. You will need to replace this code with the code that is specified on the gift card that has been sent physically. You can edit the code in the “gift cards” menu.

The default behavior can be changed by enabling the “Manual code generation” option, that you’ll find in the plugin settings dashboard. This is especially useful if you have pre-printed cards that already have a code assigned to them.

Go to the order page and click on the completed order. Here you can insert the gift cart code linked to the pre-printed physical gift card you will send (only for completed orders).

The new gift card with the code you inserted will be available in the Gift Cards section, only after saving the order.

In case the order is completed but no code has been assigned to the gift card yet, the plugin provides a notification immediately visible for the administrator.
