The Gift Certificates Integration 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 - a fixed or custom amount - and determine the period of validity.
What's more, a Gift Certificate can be used until the balance is used up. So, if a Customer has a $100 Gift Certificate but their booking is only $50, they still have $50 left to spend at a later date!
There are two ways in which a Gift Certificate can be created in Checkfront. You can either issue a Gift Certificate through the Staff-side of Checkfront and email it directly to the Customer, or you can create a Gift Certificate which can then be purchased by the Customer through your Customer Booking Page. Both methods result in Gift Certificates that the recipient can apply to a later purchase.
