Gift Card Product for WooCommerce

Gift Card Product for Woocommerce allows you to sell physical gift cards to your customers

Feature Overview 

This plugin allows you to turn any product to function as a gift card product by creating a WooCommerce Coupon code when purchased.

  • You can specify the Gift Card amount for Simple Product type or create a Variable Product with multiple different Gift Card amounts for your customers to choose.
  • With the latest update, you now have option to either show the purchased Coupon Code to the customer (In customer’s Order Confirmation, Order Details page and in Order confirmation e-mail), or you can choose to not show it to the customer and instead have the purchased Gift Card coupon code(s) and their amounts displayed in WooCommerce order details in WP-Admin only. In this case it is necessary you as a Store owner will copy these Coupon codes into whatever design template you use, print and ship the physical Gift Card to the customer.
  • This plugin generates WooCommerce Coupon Codes – keep in mind these are one-time use only for the customer.

If you want to ship physical, printed Gift Cards to the customer, do not select the option “Make purchased Coupon Code(s) visible for customer”. In this case, go from WP Admin -> Orders -> Order Details, copy the purchased Coupon Codes into any design template you’re using, print the physical Gift Card and ship it to the customer.

Final notes

↑ Back to top

Please note that this plugin uses the default WooCommerce Coupon functionality. Make sure coupons are enabled in your WooCommerce Settings.

Purchased Coupons are for one-time use only. This means, for example – if a customer uses a $50 coupon on a $40 purchase, the remaining $10 on the coupon is no longer claimable, and the coupon is void after its first use. There’s no customer store credit.

Customers love Gift Cards. They’re popular because it gives them an easy and elegant way to give a gift to someone they care about.
