Help customers easily make purchase decision
It’s not a secret that choosing a gift is a hard and rather time consuming process. Customers browse through numerous websites before making their purchase decision. Therefore, there is a high risk that visitors who are not certain about a particular gift may leave your store trying to find ‘something better’.
With the Magento 1 Gift Card extension customers will be able to solve the gifting problem once and for all by purchasing specially designed gift certificates and sending them to friends and relatives either via email or via post office. Once the gift certificate is bought, a unique gift code with a greeting message will be sent to the recipient. The module works both for authorized users and guest visitors.
Increase your sales
E-gifting is rightly considered to be one of the most effective sales boosters. According to the Internetretailer.com about 80 percent of costumers say they buy at least one gift certificate during the holiday shopping season. Apart from that, more than 60 percent of gift voucher holders spend more than the amount of their gift card.
