Hi, I have a very simple question, for some reason I don't really understand exactly what this setting means and how it affects gift card function, can someone give me a short explanation?

Hey Evyatar,

 

When you go to create a gift card (ie. a code, not a 'gift card product') -- you can attach a customer account to it (so that you know who's gift card it is). When you attach a customer account, you'll have the option to send them an email, which will tell them the gift card code & amount.

Having that setting from your screenshot checked just makes it so the 'send gift card now' option is automatically checked (saves you 1 click) each time you make a gift card (helpful if you're making a bunch of them manually). 

 

Cheers,

Stephen

Yes, that's the gist of it! 🙂

 

And if you didn't check the box (or associate it with a customer account) then you should be able to generate a card/code ahead of time, and then you can manually share it once you have someone you want to give it to.

Ohh I think I get it now.. So let's say in a scenario where I've created a giveaway and the prize is a $500 gift card. I can tick this option if I'd like to send the winner his own unique code?
