How to offer e-gift cards to your customers

While we don’t have an e-gift card option per se, you can use promo codes to achieve the same effect. Here’s how:

  1. Create a e-gift card menu item, using modifiers for whatever increments ($10, $25, $50, etc.) you’d like.
  2. Set up a promo code for each increment (gift10, gift25, etc.) and make each of these promo codes tied to an email list.
  3. In the description of the menu item, ask the purchaser to enter the email address of the recipient in the Special Instructions box (or otherwise collect the email address of the recipient from the purchaser after they submit their order). You’ll be adding this email address to email list for the promo code you created in step 2.
  4. Create an email template that you send to the gift card recipient once you have their email address.

And that should do it. Please note that a promo code can only be used once, so the gift card recipient will need to redeem the entire amount when they place their order.
