How to create your first eGift Card

Step 1: Select "Create your first Gift Card"

From your Dashboard, click on "Create your first Gift Card" in the Account Setup Checklist. Or, click on Create New Gift Card in the left navigation menu.

Step 2: Give your Gift Card a Name

Enter a name for your gift card in the first textbox labeled "Gift Card Name". You can give it any name you'd like, such as Happy Birthday, Happy Holidays, Congratulations, etc. Ultimately you can choose any name you want as long as it is not copyrighted by another party or for a business you don't own like Walmart, Applebees or Apple.

Step 3: Choosing a Design

Select a gift card design by clicking on one from our library of images. Or, upload your own by clicking the blue button labeled "Upload your own design!" If there are any gift card designs you would like to see or if you have any questions about uploading your design please send an email to support@giftcardsuite.com.


Once you are finished choosing a design, click the "Next Step" button found in the bottom right corner.

Step 4: Price your Gift Card

In this step you will be choosing how much your gift card will be worth. When you create a new gift card, the default amounts will be $25, $50 and $100. If you want to offer a different amount, type the amount into the "Enter new amount" text box and click the blue "Add Amount" button. If you want to remove any amounts, click the X icon next to the amount you want to remove. You can add as many amounts as you'd like.

If you are on the Premium Plan, you will also notice there are 2 other options you have on this step, "Gift Card Type" and, if you have Monetary selected for Gift Card Type, "Allow Custom Amounts".

The two gift card types are Monetary and Specific Item. Monetary is your standard gift card with a dollar amount on it. Specific Item gift cards allow you to sell gift cards for, well, specific items. You will still assign a dollar amount to the card, however it will be labeled for something specific. This is a great way to give your customers the ability to buy a more personalized gift card. For example, if you have a restaurant, you can may want to create a gift card for an appetizer or meal. If you own a hair salon, you can create a gift card for a haircut or a specific hair style.

The "Allow Custom Amounts" option under Monetary gift cards allows your customers to choose how much they want to put on their gift card from the checkout page.

We recommend offering at least one Monetary gift card as it statistically sells more.

Step 5: Finalize Your Gift Card

If you are creating a monetary gift card, you also have the ability to show or hide the amount on the card by toggling the "Show Amount on Card" checkbox. If you decide to show the amount, you will also have the ability to pick which corner of the gift card it will appear from the "Amount Location" dropdown.

Step 6: Save Your Gift Card

Once you are finished, click the "Save" button found in the bottom right corner and your eGift card will be created!
