Customize the gift certificate: select the amount to give, write a message, etc …
Choose whether you want to receive the certificate by email to print or send it directly to the recipient.
Preview the certificate and pay online by credit card or Paypal. It’s easy!
After the payment, the user or recipient (customer’s choice) will receive an email with the gift certificates as an image ready to print or save. The certificate will include a number or a unique bar code (administrator’s choice )to be used to control its use, and all this is done securely.
Your customers can choose from as many gift certificate templates as you want because you have complete control over the image files you want to integrate. The language files and most of the gift certificates’ format parameters can also be modified. You can also determine as many amounts to select from as you want.
