Gift Card for Holiday season

Get more Holiday Sales by Setting up a Gift Card section on your Store

“This holiday season, turn up your sales volume by adding the gift card facility to your online business.”

Everyone loves receiving gifts but only the one who is gifting knows how tiring of a task it is to find a suitable gift. Well actually, this has remained a problem for people. Gifting was never a concern but when it comes to deciding what to gift, people find themselves in a stressful situation.

The National Retail Federation found that 80 percent of holiday buyers will include a gift card in their buying list this year, according to a separate poll.

To reduce the hassle for your customers in search of a gift, Knowband comes with the Gift Card Manager module. Let Gifting not be a trouble anymore.

1. Pre-existing Gift Card templates for multiple occasions

We have added a number of Gift Card templates to ease up the task for the merchants. The Gift Card Manager extension provides merchants with Gift card templates for Halloween, Christmas, New Year, etc.

Apart from the Holiday based Gift cards, the Gift Card Manager comes up with templates related to Birthdays, anniversaries, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, etc.

2. Add new Gift Cards

Couldn’t find the template you were looking for? No issues. You can add templates on your own. Just tap the “Add new template” button and make your customizations.

3. Assign a category to your Gift Cards

Assigning a category to your Gift Cards helps customers to look for the desired gift card quickly. When you assign multiple categories to different Gift Cards, those categories are shown at the front end of your website, hence saving customers time in search of the desired gift card.

For example, Gift cards related to Halloween and Christmas can be put under the Festival category.

4. Customize your Gift cards

The Gift Card Manager provides you with the option to set attractive images for your gift cards. The more appealing your Gift Cards look, the more customer attention they will grab.

You can also allow your customers to send the gift card to the recipients over their email address or deliver at their residence address.

You need to enable “Physical Gift Card allowed” for the gift card delivery to a recipient’s address and enable “Virtual Gift Card allowed” for giving customers the option to send it via email.

The Gift Cards tab allows you to define the gift card’s worth. Within this tab,

1. You can provide a name to your gift card

2. Set the gift card price

3. Define the gift card quantity

4. Set the gift card validity

5. Allow free shipping

6. Allow partial usage of the gift card amount

7. Set the currency in which the gift card can be purchased. If currency preference is set to “All currencies”, then a gift card can be purchased for all of the mentioned currencies.

5. View your Gift card orders

Every gift card purchased will be displayed under the “Gift Card orders.”

The tab consists of the order reference id, recipient’s email address, delivery date, gift card status, etc.

6. Set a minimum delivery gap for the gift card

You can keep a few day’s gaps between the order placement and the delivery of the gift card. No gift card will be delivered before this period.

7. Display the Gift Card block at multiple places

You can display the gift card tab at the header, footer, or under the “My Account” section of the customer.

It can also be displayed separately on the center-left side of the website.

8. Print Photo Gift Card

The module allows your customers to send photo gift cards to their loved ones. You can have several default gift card templates but nothing is better than giving an option to your customers to print their own gift card. They can upload a picture and create a new gift card.

9. Personalize your email content

You can make changes to the email subject and the email content for both the recipient and the sender.
