Our team here have noticed salons wanting to setup gift cards for clients to purchase from their website while the Salon is closed.
Which is a great idea, clients can pre-pay fo their future appointments, they can purchase the gift cards as birthday and anniversary presents, or to send a thank you.
We have put together a couple fo simple steps to do this – remember you do not need to post gift cards as they can be sent via email.
How to add gift card purchases to your website
In V2 (the Hub) Under settings > Online bookings > Design the widget, there is a code under the main script. – Button HTML to open widget and show gift cards (paste this into your web page)
You can put a ‘purchase here’ button on your website with this code. When clicked it will force the widget to open on the purchase gift card page.
Makes it easier for clients to find and access.
Accept payment for gift cards
In V2 (the Hub) under Settings > Online bookings > Deposits > they can setup or link a stripe account
Set up Stripe account
1. Setup stripe account in settings > online bookings > deposits
2. Setup values gift cards can be purchased in via settings > Online bookings > Gift cards (Make sure these are set to e-gift cards during this time)
3. Advertise it and add the direct link to your website – your social media platforms will be a great place to advertise your gift cards
