Gift cards are a great way to boost your store’s sales and customer loyalty. They are also a good option for promotions, contests, and offering store credit to new customers. You can sell or send them using Shopify, and they work well with every subscription plan.
How to Create Gift Cards in Shopify
To issue a gift card, first enable it from your admin dashboard. Click Products, then Gift cards.
Next, you’ll need to set the value of your gift card. To do this, go to Gift cards and enter the initial value of the gift card in Denominations.
Once you’ve set the value of your gift card, click Save.
You can also edit your gift card by going to Gift cards and clicking the gift card you want to change. You can add variants or edit the name, price, and image of your gift card.
If you have a custom gift card image, you can upload it to the gift cards section and edit it to include your logo or other branding elements. You can also update the gift card’s denomination and expiry date to match your business needs.
How to Issue Free Gift Cards in Shopify
If your shop has a large volume of repeat customers, offering them a free gift card with a specific value is a great way to reward them and entice new shoppers. It can also increase your AOV and make more money for you without any extra costs for marketing or promoting the gift card.
When you issue a free gift card, you generate a code that customers can use toward other products in your store. They receive the code via email and can use it to redeem it online or in-person. You decide how much the gift card is worth, and they can use it to purchase other products from your shop.
You can send a gift card through email to any customer who has an account on your store. You can also create a new gift card and include a custom message. You can choose to include a QR code that allows customers to scan the code and find out the value of the card.
After you’ve sent the gift card, the customer can view it by clicking View. They’ll see a web page displaying the value and a QR code to scan for in-person purchases or to copy it and paste into your store’s online checkout. They can use the gift card to buy in-store or online and check out with a discount or store credit.
How to Add a Gift Card Product in Shopify
When creating a gift card product, you’ll need to enter a title and description. You can also select whether or not you want to include a media file. You can also choose to schedule the availability of the product for the future.
How to add a gift card collection in shopify
Once you’ve created a gift card product, you can add it to any collections that you have on your store. The collection you select will display the product on your online store search or in the collection’s page, and will appear on any pages that link to the collection.
