Prevent a running balance (force gift card to always use entire balance)

Note: This customization requires the PW Gift Cards Pro version.

Follow these steps to make the gift card always use 100% of the remaining balance when redeemed, regardless of the order amount.

1. Download the free Code Snippets plugin:
2. Create a Snippet with the following code:

function custom_pwgc_debit_amount( $debit_amount, $gift_card, $order_item_id, $line, $order ) {
    return ( $gift_card->get_balance() * -1 );
add_filter( 'pwgc_debit_amount', 'custom_pwgc_debit_amount', 10, 5 );

function custom_pwgc_remaining_balance( $balance, $gift_card ) {
    return 0;
add_filter( 'pwgc_remaining_balance_cart', 'custom_pwgc_remaining_balance', 10, 2 );
add_filter( 'pwgc_remaining_balance_checkout', 'custom_pwgc_remaining_balance', 10, 2 );

Note: If you are more comfortable with editing your functions.php you can do that instead of Code Snippets.
