Capture New Audiences With WooCommerce Gift Cards – The Original Viral Marketing!

Gift certificates have been around in the store marketing world for a long time, usually in person with credit card like plastic with a scratch off showing a unique code. 

If you think about it, it’s the original viral marketing because those cards would then be given to friends/family as gifts and those people would become new customers.

Advanced Gift Cards brings this concept into the modern age. There’s no planet destroying physical gift cards made of plastic, but there is still unique card designs and unique codes. Plus, it’s still inherently viral with the ability to send it straight to a friend.

Easily Sharable, Easily Giftable

Just as with physical gift cards, you can also share the online version of a gift certificate as well. Encourage your customers to purchase gift cards as a special present for a friend simply by selecting the “Send To A Friend” option when adding to cart.

The system is smart and will automatically send the generated code along with an email that is matched to your store color scheme.

The email shows the beautiful gift card design, their gift card code and amount plus a short optional message from the purchaser.

Great For Holiday Seasons & Occasions

As a store owners it’s important for you to have giftable products when it comes to holiday seasons and important occasions. Often, stores will create categories just for this purpose to showcase all of the options.

Gift Cards are the ultimate gift – it’s right there in the name after all!

With WooCommerce gift cards provided by Advanced Gift Cards plugin your customers can purchase a card in the amounts you set and have that gift card instantly delivered to the recipient.

No, WooCommerce doesn’t have gift cards out of the box, only coupon codes. But you can add gift card functionality easily using Advanced Gift Cards plugin.

Advanced Gift Cards lets you add gift card products in your WooCommerce store and allow you to sell digitally redeemable gift cards.

They have an expiration date, an email template that sends that gift voucher to your customer (or their friend), and loads of included designs to make your customers want to purchase.

To add a gift card to your WooCommerce store, simply:

Step 1: To add a gift card product to WooCommerce you need to install the Advanced Gift Cards plugin.

Step 2: Once installed, go to Products->Add New and create a new gift card product.

Step 3: The final step is to set the price of the gift card and the value of the gift card.

The best gift card plugin for WooCommerce is Advanced Gift Cards. It allows you to not only sell digital redeemable gift cards on a WooCommerce store but it also features the ability to send the gift card to the recipient automatically.

WooCommerce gift cards work just like a regular product where the customer purchases them, but with some minor differences. Upon purchasing a unique code is generated for the gift card and stored in the database. This unique gift card code is redeemable as store credit either during checkout or via the My Account page.

To create a WordPress gift card you need two plugins, WooCommerce to add basic ecommerce functionality and Advanced Gift Cards to add the gift card functionality to WooCommerce.

Selling a WordPress gift card is easy. First, you need to install WooCommerce to add basic ecommerce functionality to your website. Second, you need to install Advanced Gift Cards to add the ability to sell gift cards to WooCommerce. Gift cards products can be added to product categories and sold alongside your other products.

A great feature in Advanced Gift Cards is the ability to let your customers set a delivery date for the gift card.

It lets them purchase a digital gift for their friend and set the exact date and time they want the gift to be delivered which is great for occasions like birthdays, weddings, and other big events.

There are a few things you’ll need to get started with Advanced Gift Cards.

First, your store must be running on WordPress and WooCommerce. The plugin is specifically built for this system and will not work with any other ecommerce systems.

And lastly, you’ll need the free Advanced Coupons plugin which is a free coupon plugin for WooCommerce that extends your coupons functionality. It also adds the store credits features that are required for Advanced Gift Cards to work.
