Creating Shopify eGift Cards


Once you've enabled Shopify eGift cards, you'll have to actually create those eGift cards as products in your store. While this process is effectively the same as creating any other product in Shopify, there are a few rules you'll have to follow in order to make sure everything functions properly. In this article we'll discuss how to create your Shopify Plus eGift Cards.

Creating the Product

In order to offer eGift cards on your site, you'll first have to create them as a product. You can create these in Shopify, although depending on which POS system you're using, you may need to also create them in your POS system (this is necessary with Epicor Eagle, for example). 

You'll want to create the eGift card like you would any other product. Each denomination (25$, 50$, etc.) will be a product variant. You'll need to assign a "gift cards" tag, and assign the product to a collection and product type also called "gift cards".

Please also note that the SKUs you create for these eGift cards will need to start with "egift". Once you've created the product, you'll need to provide Modern Retail with a list of the SKUs for your new eGift cards.
