Setting up Gift Certificates

You first need to setup as many different valued gift certificates as needed.  This is completed via Manage Gift Certificates.

TIP: If you are setting up the gift certificate to be the full value of a ticket type you have on sale, ensure that you include the booking fee in the value for the gift certificate.

If you are going to link your gift certificates to your website, remember people will see your complete listing. You are able to add in special ones at times, issue them off and then remove that special certificate from general view.

You are also able to define a validity period to the gift certificate. If you are using this for online purchases, please consider setting this as 12 months - which lines up with the Visa / Mastercard expiry timeframe. Once you have completed the basic information on each certificate you can link styles and Terms and Conditions to each one as demonstrated below.

Styling Gift Certificates

The standard gift certificate from TryBooking has the following appearance.



As per ticket styles, you can create a custom gift certificate via Gift Certificate Styles or you can add watermark images to the background of your ticket. To learn how to create a background image or work with styling gift certificates, please refer to adding images to a ticket.
