Gift vouchers are actually a ShopFactory cloud product type. So you will be asked to confirm that you want to switch to the ShopFactory Cloud Products section. Click OK and start setting up your voucher.
You can create a gift voucher with one or more price values attached to it.
This allows customers to buy the gift voucher by selecting the price they want. All value levels of a voucher will share the same design - just their price value and title will be different.
If you want to use different designs for the different values, simple create individual gift vouchers instead of adding multiple values to the same voucher.
Title: Enter a name for the voucher
SKU: Enter a catalog number or SKU which uniquely identifies the voucher. You will need this to add the gift voucher to your ShopFactory shop.
Price: Enter the value of the gift voucher. Customer can buy the gift voucher for this price.
Number of vouchers: Enter the number of vouchers you want to sell. This is essentially your stock level. Just enter a really high number, if you are concerned you will run out.
To add an extra value level, click on the Add value level button.
Voucher valid for: The number of month before the voucher expires after being purchased. Most countries legally require at least 12 months, some 24 months.
Barcode Format: In the future it will be possible to scan gift vouchers in store with your mobile phone, so you can also accept and manage gift vouchers in your physical store not just online.
Pre-designed: The easy option. We use your product image, title and text to automatically create a customized gift voucher design for you. It will be updated when a customer purchases the voucher to reflect the value and time to expire.
Custom PDF voucher: You can create your own gift voucher design and upload it as a single page PDF document. Be sure to leave space in the center of the page for the values we must add. Use the preview button to check your design.
Once you click on Publish, the gift voucher is added to your cloud store.
