Q&A: gift card for specific product only - is this possible in prestashop?

PrestaShop user question

Hi there I am a lead developer for company that works with webiste based on PrestaShop. We have the following exact requirements and I think your Gift Card module will work, but I would like to confirm. 
  • We want to add gift cards/vouchers that are linked to specific products only. 
  • Buyer wants to give a gift of product X to someone else. 
  • Buyer will add a gift card to their cart. 
  • This gift card matches only one exact product in the store (Product X). 
  • For each product that we want to gift this way, we will create a specific gift card. So there is a 1 to 1 mapping between gift cards and products. 

To be clear,
we do not want generic gift cards that only have a dollar value for discount on a cart. The buyer chooses the gift card, e.g. "Gift Card for Fancy Calendar 2017" because they wish to give that exact product as a gift. The next step is that the buyer enters the email address for the recipient. We will then email that code to the recipient. Next the recipient will come to the store, choose Product X (and customize it as they wish with their own photos). Then either on the product page or in the cart somewhere, enter this gift card code we emailed to them. If the cart contains Product X and the gift card code is for Product X, the item is now free for the user. The code cannot be used for Product Y even if it has the same price. Can your module help us to accomplish this?

Thank you for your time.

Hello Pablo,
Gift card module that I developed allows to create this kind of voucher code. With this module you can define detailed settings of coupons (gift cards) that module will generate. To make it work in the way you described it will be necessary to:
  1. create a gift card for example "Gift Card for Fancy Calendar 2017"
  2. Associate this gift card with product "Gift card for fancy calendar 2017" 
  3. Define settings of voucher code that will be generated for this gift card:
    - add rule concerning products: "Fancy calendar 2017" (this will be the target of 100% discount)
    - voucher type: percentage discount
    - voucher value: 100%
    - target of discount: selected product
When someone will order "gift card for fancy calendar 2017" - module will generate unique coupon code that will give 100% discount for selected product (Fancy calendar 2017). Other products in cart (if any) will not have this discount.

So, it will work exactly as you described.

exmaple (gift voucher for 100% discount for "blouse" product)
