Using Gift Cards in Bold Checkout

Bold Checkout allows you to offer a wide variety of payment options, including gift cards.

Because Checkout uses its own checkout to process your customer's payments, gift cards created within the BigCommerce admin are not compatible with Bold Checkout. Only gift cards created within Bold Checkout can be used in Bold Checkout.

To view all of your gift cards, open Bold Checkout and navigate to Payment Options > Gift Cards. You may revoke gift cards here, too.

 


 

As soon as a gift card's been created, your customer will receive an email notification.

We recommend double checking your email notification settings are exactly as you'd like them to be before sending these emails.

  1. From the BigCommerce admin, select Apps.
  2. Select Bold Checkout.
  3. Select Payment Options, then Gift Cards.
  4. Select Create Gift Card.
  5. Enter the amount and a name for the gift card.
  6. Select the expiry date options for your gift card. (optional)

    Note: This option may be illegal in your country. Please verify the local laws before selecting this option.
