Virtual Gift cards have arrived! A virtual gift card in Activity Messenger is a method of payment. It works just like regular gift cards in chain stores and contains a unique 14-digit code that can be used to pay anything you sell in Activity Messenger. See the help guide.


1- Prepaid gift cards

You may sell prepaid gift cards allowing customer to purchase classes, memberships or products later.

Click on the Forms menu, and choose option Create. Select the sample form “Sell a prepaid gift card” and click on Create. This will create a new Payment form with a Products question. Activity Messenger will automatically create a new product called “Gift card” for you.

2 - Refund and credit to an account

A gift card can be given to hold store credit when you refund a client.

From any paid invoice, click on either “Cancel and refund” or on “Refund”. Choose which invoice items to refund and toggle the option “Refund to a gift card”.

3- Paying with a gift card

At checkout your client can choose to pay with a gift card. They can type in the 14-digit code to apply the gift card as payment. If the gift card balance is less than the total of the invoice, they can pay the remaining amount due with another gift card, or with their credit card.
