Before creating gift cards, you'll need to create gift card types. You may want to create more than one gift card type if you want to offer a promotional gift card that has a different expiration date than regular gift cards. Go to Gift Card Management activity in the left menu, then follow the steps below.
1. To create a gift card type, navigate to the Gift Card Types tab along the top. Select Add Type from the drop down options in the Gift Card Types tab in the Gift Card Management Activity.
2. Fill in the required fields:
- Gift Card Type Name
- Universal or Specific - Select Universal
- Number of Days Valid
- Sellable - Check sellable if you want this gift card type to be sellable on the register.
