The Gift Card feature allows the store to create and sell gift cards, in any denominations, on the website. This makes it easy for stores to sell gift cards and is an excellent option for creating store gift cards through your website.
To request this feature please navigate to Store > Configuration > Account Information and Preferences > Store Features and select ‘Gift Cards’.
We will send you confirmation that the ‘Gift Card’ module has been enabled. Once enabled you will have a new content type ‘Gift Card’ and be able to begin creating and selling gift card products.
Enabling the feature will also create a new shipping rate on your website labelled ‘Free Giftcard Shipping’. This shipping rate will only be offered to customers if they have gift card product items in their order. This rate will not appear if the customer has any additional items aside from gift cards. You can disable this rate if you wish by navigating to Store > Configuration > Shipping Quotes.
