Implement a system for gift cards, where it can store the amount the gift card has, and also add credit
This thread seems to be talking about different things – so I need to get clarification if possible.
When you comment on this thread please state if you want “gift certificate support”, meaning a template to print them or something, and maybe a way to track the balance – OR -
“gift card support via Vantiv” where you have to buy magstripe cards with your design, have a Vantiv account, and deal with loading / checking balances / and the regulation that goes along with being required to allow people to cash out/etc.
We can refer to these as “basic gift certificates” or “magstripe gift cards” in the comments.
Feel free to say you want both! :)
The Vantiv “gift card support” is a fairly large project that we would need to see a lot of votes to get going.
A basic gift certificate tracking system might be simpler and then able to be built sooner. (but only if people want it)

How many of the people that voted for this have bought a gift card to a computer repair shop?
Could you just print your own gift certificates to accomplish the same thing?
My feeling is we could probably spend our time building more important things, but let's keep this conversation going :)

this is really important for us as well, especially during the holiday season
