Two New Features For Online Gift Codes
The IndieCommerce platform’s Online Only Gift Code is an integrated feature that allows for the purchase, redemption, and management of an e-gift code. This feature is a great alternative for stores that do not currently use Givex as their gift card provider.

Please keep in mind that these codes can be used to purchase books, as well as any custom products your store has created online.  These gift codes cannot be used for eBooks and audiobook purchases. Here are the two new features that online only gift codes now offer:

  • Customers can now choose the date when the gift code should be emailed to the recipient.
  • Stores can upload an image to be included in the email to the giftcode recipient.

For more information about the online only gift code feature, please visit this page.

NEW DAY & TIME For IndieLite Webinar
IMPORTANT - IndieLite stores: Sign up for the second in a two-part session on switching credit card processors, which will now take place on Wednesday, June 2, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. ET. (The date has been moved from May 19.) This session will focus on new tools and features available to stores after they switch to their own credit card processor. Register here. Stores that have already switched to their own credit card system and have questions, can reach out to [email protected] and we can schedule one-on-one training for you.

Thanks for reading. Feel free to email us with any thoughts, questions, or suggestions.
