Gift Cards allow you to sell credit to your organization via a gift card code that can then be redeemed by any customer using that code at checkout. Gift Cards are not tied to the ticket buyer's email address so the code is transferrable from one customer to another. However, the credit will only be redeemable to ticket purchases to your organization.
Navigate to the Promote tab in the main navigation and click on the Gift Cards card.

- Name - What will display to the customer when they purchase the gift card

- Valid From, Until - Select the dates between which you would like the gift card to be valid for ticket purchases.
Be sure to click "Save Gift Card" to create the gift card with the entered information. It is a good idea to double-check the information entered, but there is an option to go back and edit the information if needed.
When you click "Save Gift Card" you will return to the list of gift cards (see image below). Note the toggle that is available for each gift card in this list. This toggle will make the gift card available for purchase on an organization's page. Clicking on the three dots next to the toggle will provide additional options.
