Creating Gift Voucher Products


When you sell a gift voucher to a customer, you are selling a pre-created non-stock product.

To create this product:

  1. From the left navigation, select Products.
  2. Select Create New Product.
  3. Enter "Gift Voucher" as a product name.
  4. Change Order Type to "Gift Voucher".
  5. Change Stock Control to "Non Stock".
  6. In the product grid below, create a product option for each denomination of gift voucher (i.e., $5, $10, $20).
  7. Select Save and Close.

Changing Gift Voucher Settings


There are a couple of settings that you can configure for gift vouchers. To access the settings:

  1. While logged in as an Administrator, select your username in the top right and then select Settings.
  2. From the POS menu, select POS Settings.
  3. Select Save to save any changes.

The relevant settings are:

Gift Voucher Expiry

Allows you to choose the expiration period for your gift vouchers.

Generate Gift Voucher Codes

If you have preprinted gift vouchers with their own coding system, you can enter the code into the POS at the time of transaction by choosing Scan or manually enter your own Gift Voucher Codes. Gift Voucher codes must be longer than four digits.

Choose Cin7 automatically generate codes if you would prefer the codes to be generated for you.
