Customers buying a gift card for someone else have the option of completing extra fields for recipient name, email, and message fields. After purchase, a personalized email containing the message and gift card code is sent to the recipient. The customer receives a notification containing the gift card code to confirm that the gift card was sent to the recipient.
Selling gift cards
A gift card is a special type of product. Its value can be used as payment toward future orders from your online store.
You can add a new gift card product or update an existing one from the Gift cards page of your Shopify admin.
