Gift Card Inflating Sales

5 0 2

Does anyone have a workaround for gift card payments inflating the month's sales figure?

My problem is that when a customer uses a gift card to pay for their order, I'm not actually receiving any money in that transaction, however the monthly sales figure still includes the amount as 'paid'. So for example, if someone purchased a $100 online gift card, it shows a $100 revenue for that day. Then, when the customer redeems that gift card on a later date, it shows a $100 revenue on that day as well. Even though we only received actual payment when the gift card was purchased.
