Connect Gift Up! to your Weebly store and we will enable your Gift Up! gift card codes to be used during checkout.
How to install our checkout in your Weebly website
We have dedicated app in the Weebly app store for installing our checking into your Weebly website.
How Gift Up! works with your Weebly store
When you sell a gift card in your Gift Up! checkout we will automatically create a discount coupon of the gift card balance in Weebly that matches the 5-character alpha-numeric code that we create.
For example, here's an order for a gift card:
Now the gift recipient (the only person who knows that code) can go to your store and place an order and use this discount code against an order in your store.
Orders placed for more than the gift card value
If they place an order for more than the value of the gift card, then they just need to pay the balance as normal during the checkout.
$70 gift card, $100 order
$70 gift card balance applied as a discount
$30 balance to pay during checkout
$70 redeemed against the gift card, leaving a $0 balance
Orders placed for less than the gift card value
If they place an order for less than the value of the gift card then they will only have to pay any shipping costs.
$70 gift card, $50 order
$70 gift card balance available, but only $50 is applied as a discount
$0 to pay during checkout
$50 redeemed against the gift card, leaving $20 balance
What about the remaining balance?
In the instance above, the coupon gets deleted automatically by Weebly (as the original discount coupon was a one time use only coupon), but when the order gets placed in Weebly, we get notified and we reduce the gift card balance in Gift Up! to $20 and immediately re-create the discount coupon with the exact same code again, but this time with a $20 balance so your customer can come along again and place another order and use their remaining balance.
What about shipping costs?
When we create the discount coupon in Weebly, it can be used against any shipping costs on the cart. This is the only behaviour in Weebly e-commerce.
Why do I have to install your checkout as well, can I not set up a product in Weebly (called something like "gift card")?
I'm afraid not. The simple reason being that whilst we could look for all orders coming from Weebly containing that product, we would not know where to send it to, or when.
In our checkout, your customers can be very specific about who gets the gift card and crucially, when. During the Weebly checkout it's not possible to collect this information, plus Weebly asks for postal address information, which would really confuse your gift card buyers as our gift cards are sent by email typically.
