Products: Gift Certificates

What Are Gift Certificates?

The Gift Certificate option in vinSUITE allows you to create a prepaid gift certificate to be used as an alternative to credit card purchases made from your website store.

Important Notes:

  • The Gift Certificate creation process is not dependent on any prepayment being made by the customer. We recommend  you first collect the dollar total from the member to cover the amount of the Gift Certificate before creating it.
  • Before offering Gift Certificates, make sure that the redemption fields are enabled in your website checkout process (see checkout image below). If these fields are not currently available, please contact our Support Desk at to enable this feature.
