The gift certificate add-on enables you to offer your customers redeemable gift certificates that can be applied towards the value of a future booking with your business. These gift certificates are fully customizable, allowing you to set the value and determine the period of validity.
What's more, a gift certificate can be used more than once. So, if a customer has a $100 gift certificate, but their booking is only $50, they will still have $50 left to spend at a later date!
Gift certificates can be issued by a privileged staff member through the business backend, or purchased by customers through your website, in the same way they would make a regular booking.
So let's dive right in and have a look at how to activate and use the gift certificates add-on in Checkfront!
