Gift Card for Magento 2
Enable customers to buy gift cards and send them to friends via email or by post. Create an unlimited number of gift cards with different pricing models and easily keep track of all purchased certificates.
- Create gift cards with fixed or open amount price types
- Easily generate and upload gift codes
- Send gift certificates via email or post office
- Keep track of all purchased gift cards
- Offer stunning gift card templates
Every day thousands of customers browse through numerous online stores to find an ideal gift for their friends, colleagues or relatives. Even though browsing a catalog is a time-consuming task, many stores still do not provide special offers for such cases. Unfortunately, if visitors can’t find a great idea for a gift, there is a high risk that those who are not certain about a specific present may leave your store without making a purchase. That’s why many store owners try to help customers with gift searching.
The Gift Card extension for Magento 2 easily solves the gifting dilemma by offering specially designed gift certificates which can be sent to recipients via email or by post. Once the certificate is purchased, a unique code with a custom greeting message will be sent to the addressee. The module lets admin users create gift card products with different pricing types, use predefined card images or upload their own ones and helps them to keep track of all purchased gift certificates.
Why do more and more shoppers prefer purchasing gift cards to classic gifting? According to the cardcash.com research about 50% of respondents admit that certificates let recipients select the present according to their taste. Almost 25% of consumers say that gift cards are easier to buy.
Thus, extra gifting options can be extremely profitable for e-commerce business, especially during the multiple holiday periods. But, unfortunately, the default Magento functionality doesn’t have all necessary options for flexible gift card management, which leads to potential losses. That’s why the Gift Card solution has been designed.

- Add an unlimited number of gift codes;
