An Article about Commerce Gift Card module

| | 1 min read

Commerce gift card module is used for creating Gift card Product types and sell it through the site. This module works with the drupal commerce module.

The module automatically creates a Product of type Gift card and enables the site admin to sell those Gift cards via the site. This Gift card can be used by the customer itself or can be gifted to any others. There is an option to send the Gift card by email. Each Gift coupon will contain a coupon code associated with them and this code can be used for future product purchases through that site. The discount associated with that coupon code will be applied to the purchase made. Users will have the option to view their Git coupon balance also.

A major issue I faced while installing this module is its dependency on the Commerce coupon user module, which is a sub-module of the commerce coupon module. This sub-module is not available with the recommended release (7.x-1.0-beta7) of the Commerce coupon module. That sub-module is available with the 7.x-2.0-rc2 release of the commerce coupon module. So if our existing system uses the commerce coupon 7.x-1.0-beta7 release, we need to upgrade it to the new release, apply the patches (if there is any) and then enable the commerce gift coupon module.
