Creating a new batch of gift cards

Cloud Retailer has the capability to internally process gift cards and do it across multiple locations.  If you'd like a quote on gift cards with Cloud Retailer embedded serial numbers let us know, but you can technically get them printed anywhere provided you follow a few simple rules:

1)  The gift card serial numbers should be generated in advance and through the system.

To create a new batch of gift cards go to the back office website > Admin tab > Gift Card Batches > Create New Gift Card Batch.  Type in the number of gift cards you're going to print and add any notes you care to, click Save and exit.

Once you're back at the gift card batches page, select the row of the batch you just created and then click "Export Gift Card Codes to File".  This will export a text file that you need to forward onto your gift card processing company so they can embed these numbers into the cards.  These are semi-random alphanumeric serial numbers for security purposes.

2)  We recommend that the serial numbers listed above are embedded in a barcode.  Cloud Retailer works best with barcoded gift cards versus magnetic stripe style gift cards.  On top of that they are cheaper and last longer!
