Totally agree on the recipients email address - it's a gift card for someone else (not the customer purchasing it). Duh, doh!
Come on Shopify dev team - this is a no brainer to add in an email address for the recipient. I can't think of a platform that doesn't have this most basic of functions.
I constantly sit here in wonderment at the gross lack of basic functionality in Shopify. Great platform but how on earth do "real" customers use it?
And don't get me started on the collections logic issues - all I want to do is to include a tag and exclude a tag for a collection. Oh my goodness.
I agree this is ridiculous! It's such a pain in the ass when people want to gift others. It's been a crappy experience for me during the busy Christmas season. It should be a complete and seamless process. It's greed imho for Shopify to offer a half ass service. They collect money for the gift cards and we have to spend unnecessary time or extra money to get those cards to the intended recipients! Shameful!!!!
Do you have any plans to bring your gift card checkout process up to the year 2021? Sending gift cards directly to the recipient is a must-have feature and nearly all e-commerce websites offer this. Thank you.
Come on Shopify. Seriously, get it together! I spent 2 months rebuilding our website, moving from Squarespace to Shopify, so that we could offer Direct-to-Consumer sales. I have had to add expensive plug-ins to offer curbside delivery vs. local home delivery options with calendar options, which is the only reason why I made the switch to Shopify. Squarespace did not have this option. Now I am getting requests for gift certificates and cannot believe that especially now, during a Pandemic when people cannot have contact with each other, the leading sales platform for websites (Shopify), does not offer a proper system for selling/ordering/emailing gift certificates. This is NOT good enough and you need to get to get this figured out!
Very good and on target for Shopify's support for basic functionality. "We will feedback to our dev team and this might be added as a feature at a later date". Does this come with the pie in the sky, a long stand and a left handed spanner?
+1 on this is basic functionality, the ENTIRE POINT of sending a gift card is to gift it to someone else, the exception would be to purchase it for oneself. Not only does this not function correctly it is really confusing, I just added the gift card to my store and then proceeded to pretend to buy one to see what the customer experience would be like and almost completed the transaction because I was sure that I'd be coming to a page asking me where I wanted it to be sent. Shopify please HELP!!!!!!
