Show gift cards on the My Account page

It isn’t possible to show the gift cards directly on the My Account page. This is a common request and it is a feature we are considering for a future update. If you would like to be notified when this is available, send us an email.

Why not?

Gift Card numbers are not tied to specific accounts. It isn’t a requirement that the recipient of a gift card have previously created an account at your store. The purchasing customer supplies the recipient’s email address and the recipient can redeem even as a guest.

The “My Account” page can link to the “Check Balance” page so that the customer can enter a gift card number into the field to check the balance.

When the recipient clicks on the “Redeem” button in the email, it will associate the gift card with their session. That way as soon as they add a product to the cart, the gift card will already be applied and will show the remaining balance.
