Buying a Gift Certificate

If you intend to issue gift certificates to sponsors, members, competition winners, special helpers,etc and use them largely for internal purposes, you will need to first setup a promotional code to once again bypass the credit card screen.  This screen is similar to using promotional codes via tickets.

If you are running an online special, you may offer 50% off gift certificates valued at $200, by adding in limited time promotional code and then indicating that it applies to only a certain value certificate.

You can purchase Gift Certicates by clicking on (internal use) BUY GIFT CERTIFICATES or copying and linking the URL to your website (for online use).

The screens for buying gift certificates are similar to those of purchasing tickets.

  • Firstly, it will step the user through selecting the type of certificate
  • Next, by adding in gift recipients details
  • And finally onto the Shopping Cart screen.  If you are processing gift certificates for internal use, you will enter your promotional code in the shopping cart.  

Each time a gift certificate is used, it will surrender the value used on checkout. Small residuals can be used in combination with credit cards as shown below. When purchasing gift certificates, a booking fee will be applied per gift certificate. Normal credit card charges also apply on these transactions.
