Paying by gift certificateBack to top
Using gift certificates to pay for a booking is very easy. The Customer selects the item/product for booking as usual and fills out their booking details.
When it comes to paying, the payment screen defaults to Credit Card. An additional option is displayed at the top of the screen labelled Gift Certificate.
Clicking on Pay by Gift Certificate opens a pop-up window where Customers can enter their Gift Certificate Number/Code. This is the number beneath the barcode on their gift certificate PDF.
The Customer enters the Gift Certificate Number, including the dashes, into the GCN Code field. Once the system recognizes the code, the gift certificate displays below the GCN Code field.
Clicking the Apply button deducts the invoice total from the gift certificate balance.
The Customer might have a balance remaining, which can be used later. If the gift certificate balance does not cover the transaction, the Customer can enter another gift certificate number or pay via credit card.
The minimum gift certificate amount that can be applied for payment is 1.00.
