Create Gift Certificates in bulk via CSV Import
- You must have administrator access to use this feature
- Gift Certificates must be enabled under the Gift Certificate Settings
- This feature requires a user-made CSV with one column containing a unique gift certificate code on each line. To ensure correct formatting it is recommended you use a spreadsheet tool.
This process will create a series of gift certificates with the code for each certificate based on input from an imported CSV. Each line of the CSV is to contain one column, which contains the gift certificate code. One gift certificate will be generated for each line. Each line must contain a unique code or the CSV import will fail.
