    How can i create a gift certificate page for my wix flash site?

    Asked by MovingMountains on November 29, 2012 at 06:28 AM

    This what I need.

    #1 To create a gift certificate page or (widget?) to add-in my Wix flash site

    #2 I need a choice selection for 4 different types of GCs. 

    #3 I need ability to type in recipient info onto the GC. EX. To: and From:

    #4  payment capacity

    #5 and a backend record of each and numbered

     

    I think this URL just below is a woman using your service

    http://www.asyouwisheventplanninganddesign.com/giftcertificates.htm

    I like how she has a design of the GC and the layout of the page. I do not need the mailing out address part because I want them to print it out at home. Which means they will need to receive a copy of the predesigned and numbered (!) GC in their email.

    Is this possible with you guys?

    Hi,

    #1 To create a gift certificate page or (widget?) to add-in my Wix flash site

    Check this guide on how to add JotForm form to Wix website

     

    #2 I need a choice selection for 4 different types of GCs. 

    It is best if you create the form for each GCs.. so, about 4 forms.

    Just add an initial context in your site wherein the responder will have to choose first which GC they like, before they fill-in info. This way the preferred GC type will be filled in correctly.

     

    #3 I need ability to type in recipient info onto the GC. EX. To: and From:

    You can add textboxes for this requirements.

     

    #4  payment capacity

    You probably meant payment methods... at max, you can have 2 options -- via cheque or payment gateway(paypal, authorize.net, and so on..)

     

    #5 and a backend record of each and numbered

    The form's submissions data is the backend record. You can use the Unique ID field as the numbering system.

    You will have to design the image of the GCs and use it as background image, either on the form or the email template.. you will need at least 4 different GCs designed.

    Would be best also if you can at least start creating your form design and we will assist you along the way.

    Please feel free to contact us anytime should you have any other inquiry or idea/inputs you want to share.

    Thanks.

    Can I return email here? My God I wish you guys would answer a phone but...
    So I'm still trying to find out if Jotform is the right way for me to go. On the back end (as mentioned below) when I have four different GC and you say use Unique Field does your system automatically number the GC or do I number each?. Does your system automatically number the GC as they are purchased? And do they go out (meaning email) through Jotform, or do we have to do it. If we sell a thousand GC I don't wish to do all that typing you know. And if we have four different styles of GC will each style be numbered and ordered separately or will they combine in the back end?
    Lastly, do ya'll have a mass email system? And lets say we do an large email send out, do ya'll have the capacity to send a link with the email that they can come right back to our site and purchase? And Do I create all the email templates on Jotform?
    I'm sorry if I'm not clear.J

    We got your latest message just fine. =)

    (sorry though, as we do not offer phone support a the moment)

    Here are my take on your latest inquiries.

     

    On the back end (as mentioned below) when I have four different GC and you say use Unique Field does your system automatically number the GC or do I number each?

    The Unique Field as an auto incrementing field. It increments everytime the form is submitted. In a way you can make the uniqueness according to your preference as can alter it with prefix and padding. 

     

    Does your system automatically number the GC as they are purchased? And do they go out (meaning email) through Jotform, or do we have to do it. If we sell a thousand GC I don't wish to do all that typing you know.

    As said, you can use the Unique ID field to have a GC unique number generated. There is also a unique submissions id# generated for each form submissions (at the backend). You can use the submission id# to manage all GCs.

    The forms have notification email template, you can customize this template and send to the customer.

     

    And if we have four different styles of GC will each style be numbered and ordered separately or will they combine in the back end? 

    If you create form for each GC (4 at least on this case), you will have 4 different submissions in the backend (for each form submission) . It is better to manage each one separately to avoid mixed ups.

    Lastly, do ya'll have a mass email system? And lets say we do an large email send out, do ya'll have the capacity to send a link with the email that they can come right back to our site and purchase?

    Please check on the different mass email integration features availabel to JotForm here. In particular you can check on AWeber, Constant Contact, Campaign Monitor.. and so on.

     

    You may also want to check the JotForm Template gallery for forms you can create in particular.

    Hope this help.

    Thanks.

    thanks you guys.

    So on my flash site I was going to do four videos talking about each GC then a link below to the page that they do the actual forms and purchases. Does that sound cool?

    I personally agree that is a cool idea. =) 

    Feel free to contact us anytime should you need any assistance creating your forms. As of now, I see that you haven't started them yet. I guess you can start with creating the images for the GC.

    But I have a hunch that you will be coming out just fine and accomplished the requirements. =)

    Cheers!

    Hi there, 

    As you can understand, sharing information with people is a personal decision.  You would have to consider the importance of the information that will be shared.  

    It may be better to use other services that provide a better control of the contractors.  Services suchas Elancer or Odesk.  The contractors on these platforms get ratings and that may give you some assuarnce of how professional they are.

    With that said, you can always count on our help!

    We are more then happy to walk you through the process of accomplishing your goal.

    The above correspondence is from a prior date. I'm making a form that is for a gift certificate. The form has info on recipient, uique id, and a 'message' space- but what happens when that is filled in? Where is the emailed gift certificate? I think I need to create one but....? How? And How can it be automatically filled in with the appropriate information filled out in the form?

    Can I send a gift certificate automatically to a client through jotform? If so, can the gift certificate itself be autumatically generated through jotform?

    i need to send a gift certificate to clients who purchase them. It must be numbered with appropriate info; recipient info, personal message and a uinique id that keeps record of each one sold. The gift certificate needs to actually look like a gift certificate not a itemized list, or invoice. 

    i kkep asking these questions, and i can not get clear. I've got to dop this, and I need the help to get it done now. Please
