Gift card balances are kept in your store’s default currency. When a gift card is purchased, the exchange rate is applied to the price.

Customizing the gift card email
We use the built in WooCommerce email template system. You can find out more about customization here: https://docs.woocommerce.com/document/configuring-woocommerce-settings/#section-23
To override the email you should copy these two files:
Once the files are in your theme folder, open them up in a text editor and make any changes.
Can I sell physical gift cards using the WooCommerce Gift Cards plugin?
Yes! Once you have the physical gift cards, get a comma-separated value (CSV) file from the manufacturer. Then you can import the gift card numbers along with the balance (Sample CSV file). Create a separate WooCommerce product for the physical gift cards. This can be a Simple Product if you have a fixed amount, or a Variable Product if you want to offer multiple amounts (Variations). This is similar to how Amazon works (they sell an eGift card and a physical gift card, as separate products).
Redeem a gift card in your physical store
You can redeem a Gift Card in store using the following process:
- A transaction is started in your Point of Sale (POS) system.
- Gift card is presented to the cashier by the customer.
- Cashier clicks on Pimwick Plugins -> PW Gift Cards -> Types in the number (or usually first 4-5 digits will find it in search results).
- Click on Adjust Balance button and enter the amount being redeemed for the purchase. Optionally enter the POS receipt number.
- Return to the POS and adjust the total by the amount redeemed on the gift card.
Order cancellations and refunds
If a customer redeems a gift card on an order and the order is cancelled or refunded, the gift card balance will return to the card. This is true for mixed payment orders where the gift card is only part of the payment. The gift card amount is returned the gift card and the other amount is returned to the other payment method.
Your license will renew automatically every year. If you want to cancel the renewal, you can do so from the My Account page. If you cancel your subscription and your license expires, you may continue using all of the features of the Pro version without any restrictions. However, you won’t receive new features / bug fixes until you renew and you will be unable to activate the plugin again if deactivated or you change sites. We do not offer refunds for renewals. You can move your license to another site by deactivating the plugin and activating it on the other site.
Your license is valid only for the number of sites purchased and cannot be redistributed. If redistributed, your license will become invalid and the plugin will be disabled.
