Gift Card

A Gift card is a prepaid stored-value money card

Gift cards can be used as an alternative to cash for purchases within a particular store. You can also use it as part of your promotion strategy to entice the recipient to come in or return to your store more often.

This is how a Gift card pass should look like (passes are used in wallet apps):

If you want to modify the Gift card's information you have to navigate to the Profile page and the edit your Company Details.

7. Redemption Rules & Messages configuration

This is important

Rules (Number of scans) define the character of your voucher service and implement your marketing policies. The message to scanner is the redemption message that the redeemer will see when the Gift card is scanned.

For a Gift card we strongly suggest that:

  • You have only one rule
  • Give away the Gift card on the first scan
  • Do NOT loop between rules (the Cycle checkbox is not ticked)

Here is how the redemption rules of the typical Gift card should be:

The above rule set means that this Gift Card will be valid only during its first scan. After that is worthless.

8. Enable Location-Based Marketing

This feature is optional

With Maps Locations feature the generated pass of your voucher will trigger a notification to the mobile device when the customer enters a predefined geolocation.

Voucher Location

You can enter up to ten geolocations for a Gift card
