Configuration Manager - Menus - Tables - Gift Cards - Tokens

When a Gift Card has been processed, the line item detail information (or payment reference information) on the transaction is updated by replacing "tokens" that have been setup on the inventory items, with their respective values.

Tokens can be entered for the Gift Card Inventory Item in the Description, Long Description, and/or Comment Fields.

Tokens can be entered for the Gift Card Payment Types in the Payment's Terms field.

The tokens that are replaced are:

& - for Card Number (which is masked)
&$ - for Amount
&# - for Balance

If a Gift Card Item has an inventory comment, then the comment is copied to the line item even if the Copy Inventory Comments parameter is turned off. These tokens are also available in the Payment Terms field so Balance will be available via the Payment Loop-Terms field on receipts.

Note: The Long Description field is not saved with the invoice so any token information placed there is lost after the invoice is printed and saved.

Examples:

By placing "Gift Card &" in the Inventory Description field, the masked card number can be printed using any form that prints the Inventory Description field.

It might look like this: Gift Card *****80021*

By placing "Balance: $&#" in the Inventory Comment field, the balance can be printed using any form that prints the Inventory Comment field.

It might look like this: Balance: $53.95
