We are building a storefront for a customer who also operates a separate physical store that uses its own POS system. For now, they aren't willing to switch to the Shopify in store POS system, but they want to sell gift cards on the website that will work in their physical stores.
They had their POS provider print a bunch of gift cards that will be sold through the website. When a customer purchases one of the cards, I'd like to deliver an email with an image of the unique bar code from a gift card so they can print it out and bring it into the store.
Any ideas on how to most efficiently manage the inventory and deliver unique bar codes for each gift card purchase?
This is very similar to another post https://community.shopify.com/c/Shopify-Discussion/Selling-3rd-party-gift-cards-with-Shopify-Payment...
What I have found is that doing this goes against Shopify's terms of service which only lets you sell gift cards to you own business.
