From eGift cards to postal gift cards we have it covered for you to offer your clients to share the love on all occasions using gift cards.
Our team here have noticed salons wanting to set up gift cards for clients to purchase from their website while the Salon is closed, which is a great idea; clients can pre-pay for their future appointments, they can purchase the gift cards as birthday and anniversary presents, or to send a thank you. We have put together a couple of simple steps to do this – remember with our eGift cards you do need to post gift cards as they can be sent via email.
How to add gift card purchases to your website In V2 (the Hub) Under settings > Online bookings > Design the widget, there is a code under the main script. – Button HTML to open widget and show gift cards (paste this into your web page) You can put a ‘purchase here’ button on your website with this code. When clicked it will force the widget to open on the purchase gift card page. Makes it easier for clients to find and access.
Accept payment for gift cards In V2 (the Hub) under Settings > Online bookings > Deposits > they can setup or link a stripe account
Set up Stripe account 1. Setup stripe account in settings > online bookings > deposits 2. Setup values gift cards can be purchased in via settings > Online bookings > Gift cards (Make sure these are set to e-gift cards during this time) 3. Advertise it and add the direct link to your website – your social media platforms will be a great place to advertise your gift cards
P.s We have the option to customise your gift card adding your branded salon logo, plus your clients can pop their own little personal message onto the gift card at time of purchase too coming very soon.
