In Topic: Store Credits And Gift Certificate Numbers

I think what you describe is certainly the direction to go. We are pretty low volume, like, really low volume, so I was looking to do something from stock cart vs a custom mod. But, as things progress towards more digital solutions(s) as far as loyalties and gift cards, we'll have to get something done. Thank you again for your comments and input!

Thanks for replying, tbirn.


What I'd like, unless I'm missing it, is the ability to create a gift card product that the customer could purchase online and immediately print out for themselves (instead of waiting for us to send one in the mail) to redeem at our physical retail store or give to another recipient. We have physical gift cards for our retail store, and I'd like to just use numbers from those cards so that when the printable card is redeemed, it works with our processor terminals.


There are ways to do this, but it's not easy to a) have the card immediately available to print for the customer, and b ) have it available with our number printed so it can be physically redeemed when they get here, and c) offer gift cards in varying amounts, and d) have it all ready to go so I don't have to babysit the computer/office when one gets ordered.


Still working through it. Thanks as always for your presence on these forums!

Thank you for posting, beat. I too am in need of something similar...


We have physical cards for our retail store, which are fine for the customer to purchase online and have sent to them via postal.


But I would LOVE the ability/addon to offer a printable "card" for the customer to purchase online, download/print immediately, which would have the card value they want, and also have a number on it for our cashiers when they redeem in person at our retail store. I have tried making a downloadable gift card (PDF), but it's not possible currently to include the value or gift card number we already have (from our physical cards) available immediately and ready for the customer to print.


Icing would be if this functionality/addon would be compatible with any future CSCart releases.

In Topic: View Cart Page Continuously Reloads...

15 November 2018 - 09:06 PM

An update if anyone is reading...


It appears activity like this (continuosly reloading checkout.cart page) was caused by 2 payment methods we had setup in CSCart that were both directing to PayPal.


We have always had 2 payment methods intentionally setup for PayPal, basically for customer clarity at checkout. But it appears PayPal somehow didn't play nice (recently or just noticed) with these methods which were too similar in context, and therefore caused the "View Cart" page in question to continuously reload. Once I disabled one of those payment methods, the problem corrected itself and all worked as intended.


So, I have gone about reworking our wording and payment methods so that we only have one method directing to PayPal (which is probably a good idea anyway moving forward), and I will assume all is well.


Thanks again CSCart support for pointing me in the right direction!
