Gift cards are a great way to offer your clients a gift idea, at the same time increasing your revenue and promoting your business. In Booksy, you can create gift card templates and sell them online via your Booksy Profile, if you choose so. You can create gift card templates for all or selected services and select different expiration dates.
In order to create a gift card:
- Click Gift cards.
- Click the + button in the right bottom corner.
- Add the gift card name and description. If you decide to sell them online, the name and description will be displayed on your Booksy Profile.
- Enter the gift card price, which is the amount the customer will pay for it.
- Enter the gift card value, which is the amount it can be redeemed for.
Tip: The value doesn't have to be te same as the price. If you want to encourage clients to buy gift cards, you can enter value which is higher than the price.
- Select the tax rate, if tax applies.
- Click Select.
- Click Save.
Selling gift cards
You can sell gift cards during the checkout process. Another option is to sell them online via your Booksy Profile. To do it, you need to add payment details so that clients are notified how they can pay for the gift card (e.g. add the bank account number where they can transfer the money). The payment details will be displayed during the purchase process and sent to clients by email after they complete a purchase. To add payment details, go to Gift cards & bundled services > Payment details:
All purchased gift cards will be available in the Pending orders tab in Booksy:
Once you receive the payment from the client who ordered a gift card, go to this tab, select the order and then click Confirm payment. Only then the gift card will be sent to the provided email address.
Clients can choose whether they want to buy a gift card for themselves or a friend. If they choose a friend, the gift card will be sent to the friend directly and they will get an email with confirmation and payment details.
