Updated over a week ago

Add a gift card module to your website. With this module, your customers can buy a gift card in 3 steps. They pick the amount, fill in their personal details and pay online. The gift card will be e-mailed to the customers.

Step 1: add the gift card widget to your website. 

There are two ways to add the gift card widget to your website.

  • Option 1: the gift card widget will be opened by pushing a button,  which is visible on every page. For example at the bottom right. 

  • Option 2: you can add an inline version of the gift card to a specific page on your website. 

Pay attention: if you want to use the gift card widget, you have to make sure your integration with (for example) Stripe is activated to accept online payments. This integration is completed in a few steps. If you need help, please let us know. .

                                        How it works

» The customer buys a gift card in the gift card widget within three easy steps: 

  • The customer chooses a value. The values that can be selected are set by default and are: €10,- €25,- €50,- €75,- €100,- and €150,- euro.
    Below we'll explain how you can change the value of the gift cards. 

  • The customer provides the personal details - would you also like to ask for address details? We will take over the settings of the online appointment widget for address details, even if you don't use the online appointments yourself. 

  • The customer sees an overview of the purchase before checkout - do you want to charge transaction costs? We will take over the settings of the online appointment widget for transaction costs, even if you don't use online payments yourself.

  • The customer pays the gift card online. 

» Once the payment is successful, the following happens in Salonized: 

  • Salonized creates an invoice for the gift card sold online 

  • Salonized creates a gift card with a unique number

  • This gift card doesn't have a expire date (never expires) 

  • Salonized will send you an email with a confirmation that an online gift voucher has been sold, with details of the voucher

» The following happens, for the customer, after purchase:

  • Once the payment is successful, the customer will receive an email with the gift card and details (such as the value and the gift voucher number) 

  • The customer also receives an email containing the invoice for the online payment

In your Salonized account you will find gift card sold online by the filter "online" at the top of the gift card page.

Other settings for the gift card

In your account you can change the value and image of the gift card.

  • Adding an expiration date: the default setting is no expiration date. If you do want to add an expiration date you can enable this setting.

  • The value of the gift card: decide the value of the gift cards you want to sell.
    You can edit, add and delete the values of the giftcards. 

  • Adding a personal message: your customers will get to see to see this message after completing the online purchase.

  • The image of your gift card: upload an image of your own gift card. We will show this in the email that your customer receives when purchasing a gift card. If you don't add your own image, we will pick one of our standard images.
