Using the Gift Card API, would the following be possible?

  • in a cart totalling $100, $50 worth of the items qualify for a special discount
  • could a cart
    • call the Gift Card API
    • create a gift card for $50
    • apply that gift card for $50 to that same cart
  • then proceed to checkout where the customer pays for the remaining $50 on their credit card

Is this possible? Could it be done with a theme? Would it require an app?

This is for a Shopify Plus merchant.

PS - please assume scripts and automatic discounts are off the table for solving this.

 

Thanks.
