Choosing between default, blank and custom themesBack to top
Using blank themesBack to top
Turn ON the Blank Theme if you prefer not to use a theme. No image is displayed at the top of the gift certificate if selected.
Using default themesBack to top
You can offer themed gift certificates to your Customers. By default, Checkfront comes with a set of three themes - Celebration, Seasonal, and Summer.
Customers can choose one of these three themes to apply to the Gift Certificate they are purchasing if the default theme setting is enabled.
|If you don't wish to use the default themes for your Gift Certificates, you can replace them with a set of your images under Gift Certificate Settings. Click here for more information.|
Using custom themesBack to top
You can also upload custom themes specifically for the gift certificate in focus. Click on the + Add a Theme button. You are then prompted to upload an image from your computer. You can upload up to 5 custom themes.
|The image size must be 120px (height) by 480px (width), or the image is resized to fit.|
