What does it mean to have customizable Shopify gift cards? In short, this means that the people shopping for gift cards are able to pick images, add a message and their name to the gift card that’s sent out to their friend, family member or other gift card recipient.
The Shopkeeper Gift Cards app for Shopify allows store owners who use the Shopify Pro plan or above to let customers customize their gift cards. Hundreds of designs for every occassion let the customer pick a design that’s best for the recipient. Customers can also type a personal note to the gift card and sign their name to it, both of which are nice added touches to make the gift card a bit more personal.
When recipients receive the gift card, all they need to do is click a link and they will see the gift card “open” on their screen almost like they have received a paper greeting card with a gift card tucked inside. The design chosen by the gift giver will be shown, along with the personal note and the sender’s name, all in a layout that can be opened on a desktop computer, laptop, tablet or mobile device. Overall, it’s a great experience for the recipient that’s also fun and easy for the gift giver to customize, create and send.
Store owners benefit from an easy installation process that automatically handles all the design and customization steps. The gift cards themselves are mobile friendly and can be redeemed online or, for stores using Shopify POS, in store. It’s all completely integrated with the Shopify gift card tracking system so redemptions and balances are tracked automatically.
