YITH WooCommerce Gift Cards

Beschrijving

The easy way to sell gift cards in your shop

According to a study by Allied Market Research, gift cards turnover will register a record of $16 billion by 2028. And, by 2030, gift cards sold online will reach the $1.1 trillion threshold.

Gift cards are a powerful marketing tool to increase sales (especially during the holidays) and build customer loyalty over time.

Think about it: it could be a Christmas gift for a friend, a birthday gift for a family member, or Christmas bonuses for your employees… a gift card is always the best choice!

By offering your customers the opportunity to purchase a gift card that can be redeemed in your store, you can gain new customers (those who receive the gift card will know about your products and place an order, which means you will be able to push them to buy again and build their loyalty over time) and significantly increase your revenue.

YITH WooCommerce Gift Cards is an easy and free solution to start selling gift cards in your e-commerce store.

How does it work?

You only have to install the plugin, create your first gift card and publish it: a few-minutes process that will let you start offering gift cards immediately to your customers.

The user’s interface is very easy and inspired by Amazon’s one: your customers can choose one of the amounts you set, select an image to customize the gift card (our plugin is the only one that lets you upload an unlimited image gallery!), insert the receiver’s details, add a message and, finally, purchase the gift card like any other product on your ecommerce store.

Main features

  • Create unlimited virtual gift cards. A virtual gift card will be sent to the recipient email address
  • Create unlimited physical gift cards with one or multiple fixed amounts. Physical gift cards can be printed and shipped to the customers
  • The admin can create, edit and disable the gift cards manually from the backend
  • Create a gallery of images to assign to specific gift cards or specific categories of gift cards. (Example: Christmas, Thanksgiving, Wedding, etc.)
  • The user can enter the sender’s name and a customized message
  • The user can choose one of the images available in the gallery
  • Send automatically the gift card via email to the recipient
  • The admin can verify the email sending status of the gift code
  • Show the ‘apply gift card code’ form in Cart and Checkout pages
  • Allow user to use the gift card to pay the order even if its balance doesn’t cover the total amount
  • Allow user to use the gift card as many times as they want, based on the available balance
  • Allow the user to verify the status and the amount of the gift cards he/she owns
  • The admin can update the gift card balance from the backend without creating a new order
  • The admin has access to a table with all gift cards (to check balance, related orders and so on)

Need more? Get premium!

Free version of our plugin works like a charm, but the premium one is a very powerful tool to increase sales and conversions.

With the premium version you can:

  • Generate and send multiple gift cards through a bulk action
  • Import and export gift cards into a CSV file
  • Set an optional expiration date for the gift card (gift card will expire on a specific date, like January 01, or after a specific time after the purchase, like 3 months after)
  • Manage stock of each gift card product
  • Enable an optional QR code in gift cards
  • Allow users to specify more recipients for the same gift card (an email with a code of the same amount will be sent to each recipient)
  • Allow users to choose a delivery date and time for the gift card
  • Allow users to upload or drag & drop a custom image or photo to customize the gift card in the modal window
  • Allow users to enter a custom gift card amount (and optionally set the minimum amount that users can enter)
  • Attach a PDF to gift card email (and customize the PDF name)
  • Notify the sender via email when the gift card is delivered to recipient
  • Notify the sender via email when the recipient uses the gift card for a purchase in your shop
  • Choose the position of form in Cart and Checkout pages
  • Allow users to enter the gift card code into the standard coupon code field (instead of showing two different forms in cart and checkout)
  • Set a minimum requested amount in the cart to apply the gift card and exclude specific categories from gift card redemption
  • Create and sell a gift card linked to a specific product of the shop: the gift card will be of the same value of the product that will be recommended in the email
  • Choose the action to trigger when the gift card order gets the “Cancelled” status or it is refunded: suspend or disable the gift card (in this case, it cannot be used for any other purchases)

Integrations

  • Compatibility with YITH WooCommerce Multi Vendor: users can apply the gift card codes only on products of vendors to which the gift cards have been assigned by the global admin
  • Integration with WC Smart Coupons: convert Store Credit / Gift Certificate coupons created with it into new Gift Cards
  • Integration with YITH Multi Currency Switcher for WooCommerce
  • Integration with YITH Booking and Appointment for WooCommerce

Installatie

Important: First of all, you have to download and activate WooCommerce plugin, because without it YITH WooCommerce Gift Cards cannot work.

  1. Unzip the downloaded zip file.
  2. Upload the plugin folder into the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress site.
  3. Activate YITH WooCommerce Gift Cards from Plugins page.

Configuration

YITH WooCommerce Gift Cards will add a new tab called “Gift Cards” in “YITH Plugins” menu item. There, you will find all YITH plugins with quick access to the plugin settings page.

FAQ

To which email address will the gift card be shipped?

The gift card will be sent to the recipient email defined by the customer or to the buyer’s billing email address.

Which format will be used for the code sent?

The default format of the generated code is ****-****-****-**** and it will be made out of letters and figures.

Can I edit the format used?

Yes, the format can be edited in the plugin settings.

Why haven’t I received the email containing the gift card code?

The gift card code is generated only after the order status goes to “processing” or “complete” and therefore it will be sent to the email address entered.

What happens if the customers spend less than the total card amount?

Each time the gift card is used, the available credit is updated and if there’s some left, it can be used for future purchases.

Massy plugin, no structure, not intuitive for users. Free version works better than the premium version that creates errors while trying to pay part of an order with a gift card

Gift cards are not being added to the carrt on mobile version. No support from the creators. I spent hours on it. It was working even for a while but then suddenly the whole problem pop up again. The purchase process is working very well on desktops, but it’s totally crap on mobiles. There is clearly some bug (free version). When you set up your image gallery for your gift cards it is visible on desktop, but mobiles doesn’t even see the changes has been made. Do you want my money for it? Then don’t do free version of your plugin. I hope it’s working on premium version. If it’s not, then you really should not do what you do at all.

I bought the premium version. From the beginning the problems started. I asked for support and gave them the credentials to access Wordpress admin panel. Now inexplicably the entire Wordpress installation was deleted. IT IS INCREDIBLE.

Double charged with 2 plugins Gift Cards and Dynamic Pricing 2 x 129,90 euro in 3 days without receiving the “RENEW SUBSCRIPTION EMAIL” or some notification where it’s writing that THEY WILL CHARGE my credit card, and btw WHY IS AUTO RENEW ON ? the client should set that up, not YITH I will give 0 stars but unfortunately I can’t. I see other people have the same problem… and also the plugin need custom setup because they work only maybe with there themes but with other you need to CSS NEVER AGAIN !

119€ for a plugin which just never works perfectly without hacky workarounds. Seems not work with Ajax-add-to-cart which is an important UX feature. Calculation in order backend not working correct. Some “updates” caused fatal errors and I had to roll back to previous versions. I am tired of creating tickets. I am not your quality testing department. This is not a free extension and it feels like wasted time. I will move on with an alternative solution.
