Magento Gift Card / Certificate 2.0: Gift Value is Beyond the Price Tag
Gifts are among the best pleasures in life, and to our delight it works both for presenters and recipients. And, if you want to keep that pleasant feeling and make no mistakes, the smartest choice is to present a gift card.
The gift card functionality is absolutely indispensable for Magento stores, and today we announce the Magento Gift Card / Certificate 2.0 extension release.
Gift Card / Certificate 2.0 for Magento 1 enables customers to create and purchase personal virtual, physical or combined gift cards. On the product page customers are able to specify gift card amounts, add personal messages to emails, or select their preferable design.
Gift cards are a new type of Magento products with specific attributes necessary to maintain the required functionality. Magento admins manage and fully control the gift card options depending on their sales policy and buying audience. Also, they have an opportunity to track and control the number and value of purchased and used gift cards.
