Creating Gift Card Promotions
To make gift card promotions available for clients to purchase online, make sure you’ve set up digital gift cards before continuing.
To create a gift card promotion, go to Settings > Gift Cards > Promotions.
Enter the details of the gift card promotion.
Display name: Enter the name of the promotion that the client sees when purchasing gift cards online. This name displays in the automated email message that is sent to the gift card recipient.
Make sure you enter a brief but descriptive name for the promotion so the client understands what the promotion includes, such as which service can be purchased with the gift card. Including the service in the Display name will be helpful when viewing the gift card details in the Gift Cards screen so you know which service can be purchased with the gift card. A descriptive Display name will also be helpful for reporting purposes.
Description: Enter a description for the promotion that will be visible to the client under the promotion’s Display name when purchasing gift cards online. You can include details such as the gift card value, redemption and expiration dates, eligible services, etc. This description will be included in the automated email message that is sent to the gift card recipient.
Gift card value: Enter the value of the gift card.
Sale price: Enter the amount that the client must pay to purchase the gift card.
Start date: Enter the date when the promotion will become available for clients to purchase online. For example, you can create a Black Friday promotion ahead of time by setting up the promotion at the beginning of November and setting the Start date to Black Friday. On Black Friday, the system will automatically make the promotion available for clients to purchase online.
End date: Enter the date when the promotion will no longer be available for clients to purchase online. If you enter an End date, the system will automatically remove the promotion from your website and online booking on that date so you don’t have to remember to manually remove the promotion when it ends. You can also leave the End date blank if you have a promotion that clients can purchase year-round, for example.
When you are done entering the promotion details, select Save.
Depending on the Start and End date you specified, the promotion will be available for clients to purchase online directly on your site or through online booking.
Recurring gift card promotions
If you have a gift card promotion that you’d like to offer more than once, you can simply update the promotion's Start and End date. For example, if you run the same Black Friday promotion every year, you can reuse the same promotion in Mangomint and simply update the Start and End date accordingly every year.
