Gift Offers: Variable Price Gift Certificates

By default, Xola allows you to sell your listings as full-price gift certificates. You can also sell gift certificates at a fixed or variable price that can be applied across all of your experiences. This article details how to set up a variable price gift certificate and features two example set-ups.


Variable Price Gift Certificates

Steps

  1. Hover over the Products tab and select Gift Offers.
  2. Click +Create a Gift Offer.
  3. Select Variable price gift.
  4. Give the gift a Title.
  5. Specify the Discount of the gift - What is the discount that the gift purchaser will receive?
  6. Specify the Minimum Price of the gift - What is the minimum amount of money a gift purchaser will have to spend in order to receive the discount?
  7. Enter in a Description for this gift. Customers will see this description when they are selecting the gift certificate.
  8. Click Save.
When a variable price gift purchase comes through to your Xola account, the Total Value will be equal to the Purchase Value and the Current Balance will be equal to the Gift Value. The Current Balance will adjust as the recipient books experiences and puts the gift certificate towards the cost.
To edit the gift offer or change the gift image, navigate to Products > Gift Offers > and hover over the gift offer until you see the pencil or camera icons.
