Setting up gift cards

On the gift card settings page, you can choose whether to enable physical gift cards, digital gift cards, or both. You can also use the blue redeem button on this page to redeem a gift card, though this function is more easily accessed from the dashboard.

To configure your gift card settings, log in to the BentoBox back end and click on Settings under the Store heading on the left hand sidebar. Choose “Gift Cards” from the list that appears. Side-bar-GC-copy.png
Then, fill in the fields listed below. You’ll also need to make sure that payment processing and general store settings are configured.
