Creating a New Gift Card
Each gift card you would like to offer to your customer will need to be created as a new product. When you are creating your card products, be sure to have the product type set to "Gift Card".
Next, be sure to set the product to be available online so that your customers can purchase gift cards from their DASH Online page.
Lastly, be sure to set the products to display on your Cash Register page to make it easy to ring up.
You can create different card amounts that you would like to offer to your customer. However, when the gift card is purchased on the Admin side or when you reload a card, the original card amount can be modified to a larger amount if the customer chooses this.
Generating Redemption Codes
Gift card numbers can be generated and sent off to a card printing provider using our card number generation tool found in DASH. Just search "gift card generator" in the global search box. The gift card generator will produce a CSV file with the number of gift cards you want to print.
Printing Gift Cards
You can then provide the CSV file to any card printing company to print gift cards with barcodes on them using the numbers generated. We've used idedge as a printing provider in the past for our Player Cards but any card provider will work. Another company you can go through is Custom Card Co.
Before printing a large number of cards have the provider email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions they might have.
Below is an example of a gift card that was printed for Arena Sports. The front displays the Company logo. The back will show a scannable and written Redemption Code, the facility phone number and address.
