    integrate delivery option for gift certificate to ecommerce template

    Asked by mhworkz on June 03, 2013 at 08:33 AM

    I am working on an online store that currently sells only gift certificates. The software has no feature to add delivery options to the gift certificate checkout process because that would affect all checkouts on the store.

    I wanted to insert a jot form into the ecommerce form. As I did this, I realized I could have the jot form take the place of the ecommerce form, as a work around.


    Here is my ecommerce site: http://www.cockrellmercantile.com/store/

    Here is my gift certificate jotform page: http://cockrellmercantile.com/ht_docs/giftCertificate.html

    How can I integrate them, ie, take out the payment part of the jot form and include it with my template on the gift certificate page? This will make tracking gift certificates easier because the ecommerce tool generates and tracks the numbers automatically.

    You guys in jotform support are fantastic and give great solutions. I imagine I have to add code to the giftcertificate.php page. I am not sure.


    Thanks with your assistance.

    I think you are stating that you wish to somehow and simply integrate the form into your Ecommerce Shopping Cart Software that already exhists on your website if I am reading your question correctly?

    It looks like you are using http://www.ecommercetemplates.com/. I would like to know more about how you are imagining this? 

    To do this there might be possibility of doing so but it would have to be done outside of JotForm. You would also need additional programming knowledge along with the form's source code to create it then depending on what Ecommerce Template abilities that are supported the Gift Certificate could be counted as a product inside your shopping cart. We will look into this some more and if myself or one my more experienced colleagues are able to come up with a workaround for this we will let you know as soon as we can but it will take some time to figure out more.
