Enabling Gift Certificate Functionality in Your Storefront

The SiteGenesis application comes with embedded gift certificate functionality. But how do you implement this functionality if you have an existing application?

  1. Configure the gift certificate merchant ID sequence for sites or for the organization.
  2. Create or import the gift certificates (using Business Manager).
  3. Create the business logic (using UX Studio).
  4. After these elements are in place, use Business Manager to:
    • Report on gift certificates: through the Analytics module
    • Enable / Disable gift certificates: through the Enable field, for example, in the case of a lost gift certificate or expired promotion
    • Export gift certificates: for distribution from an external application
