Q&A: Gift card and apply discoutn also for shipping cost

PrestaShop user question

I use gift card module. How will customer buy a gift card? I cannot see such a option anywhere on site ... after Creating & enabling it (gift card). I just can see gifts that i bought in my account. Can you explain this part please?

Also, some other question is: would there be a chance to add up a value option , APLY DISCOUNT TO TOTAL ORDER (INCLUDING SHIPPING) ??  I just think if customer has a voucher for 50 € and his order is: goods 45€ and 5 € shipping , he still has only option to claim 45 and pay 5 ??? 
Or have i missed something again? 


PrestaShop expert answer

hello
1) regarding to "how to oder gift card" case,

You must:
  • create a product in shop that is a "gift card"
  • associate this product with defined gift card in the module
Then - as a customer - you just have to order the product marked as gift card, and you - as a customer - will order the gift card and get the gift code

2) module uses voucher engine available in prestashop, as long as prestashop will not offer this kind of "voucher value" - it will be not possible to include it to the plugin.  YOu can see details here: http://doc.prestashop.com/display/PS16/Cart+Rules

available "voucher value" in PrestaShop:
  • Free shipping. The rule treats benefiting customers to free shipping.
  • Apply a discount.
    • Percent (%). The rule applies to a percentage of the order total. For instance, let's say the order is valued at $200 before taxes. The rule has a value of 15%. Customer who benefit from this rule will only have to pay $170 (before taxes and shipping costs).
    • Amount. The rule applies a monetary discount on the order total. For instance, let's say the order is valued at $200 before taxes. The discount offers $20 off the purchase. Customer who benefit from this rule will only pay $180 before (before shipping costs). You can choose whether taxes are applied to the discount or not.
    • None. The rule does not offer any discount on the order. Choosing this option makes the next section, "Apply discount to", disappear.
  • Apply discount to.
    • Order (without shipping). The discount applies to the whole order.
    • Specific product. You can choose to which product the discount should apply: type the first letters of the product, and choose in the list of matching names.
    • Cheapest product. Only available for the "Percent (%)" option.
    • Selected product(s). The customer can choose on which products the discount should be applied. Only available for the "Percent (%)" option.
  • Send a free gift. You can choose to offer a gift for some conditions (and skip the discount altogether). A field appears: type the first letters of the product, and choose in the list of matching names.
