The ability to create a gift card / credit that allows for partial purchase - i.e. spend only part of the value.
Gift vouchers were in the pipeline years ago, as was a complete overhaul of the discount management system.
The current workaround to this issue is time intensive - each gift card would need its own discount to work effectively, or if they are contained within one discount the codes cannot be used in conjunction with one another:You create a separate discount to the value of £xx to represent the credit or giftcard, you would then set this with a unique single use code, and applicable for the entire basket.
Some customers also use loyalty points - but those using Klarna can't as it is incompatible
the problem with using voucher codes using the existing system means you get problems with free delivery options and minimum spend requirements, for example a min £10 order and someone uses a £10 gift voucher it will then say the order is under the minimum value when it isn't :(
The work around currently is very time intensive and also doesn't work with glitches - Got to use it in one go, doesn't include postage etc
Sometimes a customer returns a product and wants a credit note rather than a refund - in fact when you think about it, that works out better for us, the sellers! It would be great to be able to assign a credit note to a customer, so that when they check out they are asked if they want to use their discount on that order.
Has there been any update on gift cards please? With the festive season fast approaching it would be great
Gift cards, where users can pick an amount, and it automatically generates a code for them, would be VERY useful for gifts.Although it HAS to be automated, as no one wants to sit there making and emailing codes for what could be a small amount of money.
