  • Store preferences
  • Custom content... and more.

Givex Gift Cards

Givex is a third party company that ABA has partnered with for gift cards. They are the only third-party gift card that integrates with your IndieCommerce website in such a way that it can recognize the Givex card numbers, check the balance on a card, and thereby verify the payment at the time the order is placed.

NEW: As of 10/5 stores are now able to issue partial refunds to Givex Gift Cards (over $5.00) through their IndieCommerce website.

Online Gift Codes

This documentation was modified on 10/1/2021 to include new process for issuing partial refunds to online only giftcodes.


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

Automatic Coupons For A Specific Role

Automatic Coupons are a convenient way to provide a discount for a group of people within a certain role without having to give out multiple coupon codes or requiring the user to enter a code each time. For the example below we are creating a ‘Automatic Coupon’ for people with the role of ‘Staff Member’.

Gift Cards

You will need to request that ABA enable the ‘Gift Card’ module for you. You may do so by navigating to: Store > Configuration > Account Information and Preferences > Store Features scrolling to the ECOMMERCE section - check mark ‘Givex Gift Card*’ under ‘Enable This Feature’ and click the ‘Send request to ABA’ button.

Custom Products

When you first begin working with your IndieCommerce website you will have a single custom product class created by default called ‘ABA Product’. 'ABA Product' class covers ABA supplied books. However, you most likely sell other products in store and will wish to online as well. Product classes are the starting point for organizing those other items for sale as it’s going to contain all the information needed to sell and ship products on your website.
