Latest Update: Gift Card 1.2 for Magento 2

Gifting is not so easy as it may originally seem and especially in ecommerce, when you need to meet different needs of your multiple customers.

Latest Update: Gift Card 1.2 for Magento 2

That’s why we continue developing new functions and options of our Gift Card for Magento 2 extension. And, the latest Gift Card 1.2 contains the new functionality that improves both frontend shopping experience and backend configuration facilities.

Gift Card 1.2 for Magento 2

Business Value

  • Backend Promotions with Gift Cards. Using the new functionality Magento store owners are able to give gifts to their loyal and regular customers or personally greet new customers with gift cards.

  • Improved Migration and Integration. The gift code export and import options make it possible to move from Magento 1 to Magento 2 or use gift codes generated in some CRM systems or offline easily.
    Original and Recognizable Gift Codes. Custom gift codes created for different gift cards, customers or occasions make them easily recognizable for both customers and Magento admins.

New Features

Gift Cards Applied to Orders from the Backend

Sometimes, Magento admins would like to encourage most loyal customers with surprises, and the gift card codes applicable from the backend make their best for the purpose. The functionality allows promoting sales or using offline-generated coupons for particular orders.

Apply Gift Card Code Input Field

Now, all the orders received a new input field ‘Apply Gift Card Code’ in the backend to enter gift codes created by the extension. As soon as codes pass validation successfully, dedicated notifications appear at the top of the order page.

Gift Card Product Types for Gift Codes

Newly created from the backend codes now have a new attribute - Type. It refers to gift card product types currently available as Virtual, Physical, and Combined. By default, this attribute is set as Virtual for all new codes, but you can edit it anytime.

Export Gift Card Codes

The export function available for the Gift Card Code grid allows you to export codes into CSV or Excel XML files. This option is especially valuable for sophisticated grid filtering and code segmentation. You can also use exported tables in other applications, e.g. MailChimp reaching the customers with active or partially used codes.

Import /Export Gift Card Codes

The reverse operation of importing is also possible. It can be used to upload gift codes generated in old Magento 1 stores, by other gift card extensions or offline. The export function is also available in the Gift Card Codes grid.

As soon as the import process is completed, the extension creates a log file with the details located in the Magento var/log folder.

Gift Card Code Pools

As far as the extension allows creating different types of gift card products it is going to be convenient to have different types of gift codes for them. Those particular types of codes may also be useful for individual customer audiences or some occasions.

Code Pools Grid

Code Pools Grid

The functionality is available at Products -> Gift Cards by Aheadworks -> Code Pools. The Code Pools grid contains all the sets of codes in one grid, so Magento admins are able to filter, sort, manage or delete them, if necessary.

New code pools are created just here using the Add Code Pool button. The New Code Pool section specifies pool’s name and specific patterns for codes. The number of generated codes is also determined here. If you want to use existing codes for this particular pool, you can import them from a CSV file.

New Code Pool Page

New Code Pool Page

All the generated or imported codes are listed in the grid below. The grid has three columns: Code, Gift Code Created, and Action. The middle column shows the status of a particular code. For example, as soon as a customer purchases a gift card connected to this pool of codes, then the extension takes one code from this pool. As a result, the selected code becomes active and is highlighted with the ‘Yes’ status.

This way, particular gift card products use particular gift code patterns. But, if you want to create a gift code of a certain pattern from the backend, you can also take it from the required pool. Or you may leave this option disabled and generate the code according to the pattern specified in the general settings.

Gift Card Codes Patterns

This way, the patterns of gift codes determined in the extension’s Configuration Settings are used in all cases if no exceptions are applied.

Enable/disable Custom Message Fields

If there is no need to allow customers to use personal messages attached to gift cards, you can disable these fields using the Custom Message Fields option. You can either disable/enable them or show only Headline or only Message fields singly.
