Description : Selling Gift Cards online is straightforward and does not require AdVision's assistance, as you create them as products by their value, $25, $50 etc, and sell them as you would any other product, via a category (Gift Cards) you assign on eCom.
What is more of a challenge is to have your customers use the value of those Gift Cards during the eCom checkout as a payment option.
AdVision has created our Gift Cards app that works in conjunction with a back-up payment gateway such as Stripe or Authorize.net, and they are used in case a Gift Card balance does note cover the full balance due within the cart.
The Gift Card app reads the value/data from the Lightspeed Retail Point of Sale, so that when your customer enters a 'code' within the eCom checkout process, the app will determine the available balance on the card.
If customer selects to pay via Gift Card during eCom checkout, the customer is forward to a custom payment page to look up Gift Card(s) balances and to make payment. They can enter how much of the card balance they'd like to use for the current purchase
The app is set to work with Stripe or Authorized.net but can also be configured to work in tandem with any payment gateway provider you may be using. This may require additional time to install dependent on your payment gateway and the specific type of account you have with them.
- Reads the Gift Cards that you setup in Lightspeed Retail
- Can be customized for any 3rd party payment processor
- Custom enters gift card's code to look up balance
- Allows customer to use multiple Gift Cards per order
Why this App/Service : Allow customers to use their Gift Cards as payment option, when placing an order on your eCom Web Store.
