Your Shop Local Store comes with a built-in gift card feature. Customers can purchase gift cards for use at your store, and registrants can add them to their registry lists. Once a gift card is purchased or gifted, a store (and the customer or receiver) may wonder how to redeem it.
Shop Local Store software does not allow customers or gift card receivers to redeem gift cards online. For example, a gift card recipient cannot visit a Shop Local Store and use a gift card that was purchased via that Shop Local Store.
The Shop Local gift card feature is designed to be used with a store’s existing in-store gift card system. The merchant should convert the Shop Local Store gift card value to whatever system the merchant uses in-store.
For example, if a customer purchases a gift card through your Shop Local store, you may give or mail the customer a physical gift card. This gift card is only redeemable in-store.
