Dear Shopify Team
We provide a SaaS for gift vouchers. With our software as service our clients can sell their gift vouchers online and at the store. Sometimes we explain our product as follow: It’s like Shopify but for gift vouchers and much much smaller ;)
We provide an API (https://developers.e-guma.ch/docs/balance) so 3rd party systems like POS or e-commerce stores (https://developers.e-guma.ch/docs/online-integration-guide) can use it redeem gift vouchers in their system.
More and more of our customers are using Shopify and we got asked, if it’s possible to redeem gift vouchers, which were issued in our system, in a Shopify online store.
How could we best integrate the process of redeeming vouchers in a Shopify online store?
Thanks in advance for your support!
Best regards from Switzerland,
HI @kanielii ,
If you are looking to redeem Gift Vouchers on a Shopify Store, the closest native functionality that Shopify supports that will allow you to do this would be using the Gift Card API: https://shopify.dev/docs/admin-api/rest/reference/plus/giftcard . However this API is restricted to merchants on the Shopify Plus payment plan only.
Another option would be maybe to redeem Gift Vouchers in the form of one-off Discount Codes that customers can enter in on their orders as they are checking out. This can be done in the Shopify Admin API (both REST and GraphQL) using the resources of Price Rules and Discount Codes: https://shopify.dev/docs/admin-api/rest/reference/discounts/pricerule and https://shopify.dev/docs/admin-api/rest/reference/discounts/discountcode

Thanks for your feedback!
We checked out the gift card API. With this API we could sync the vouchers.
It’s a pity that only Shopify Plus accounts can use the gift card API. Any plans to open it for other accounts too?
As gift vouchers are normally used like a regular payment,
applying a discount is not an option for us. Thanks anyway.
Is there anyway to get the API opened for non shopify plus customers?
Vouchers are a form of payment and not a discount (different for the book keeping).
