I am hoping to sell a downloaded item via shopify or fetch and am hoping that someone might be able to help me offer some security surrounding that sale?  I want to sell gift certificates online and need it to be downloaded via email and printed out but I need to offer some security for the restaurants involved so that they can verify that people aren't simply photocopying the printed purchase.

thanks.

Hi Nick,

That sounds like a pretty hard problem.

If each coupon has a unique id, and if the restaurants keep track of which coupons have been used, and all restaurants are able to see whether a coupon has ever been used (i.e. the information is shared between them), then you’re in luck. However, without those conditions in play, I’m not sure how you’d be able to do it.

Hi Nick,

We've actually accomplished this before. Not for a restaurant, but for a clothing boutique. Same logic: the coupons need to be personalized.

Send me an email and let's discuss further: biz [at] spiegeldg [dot] com
