Good gift certificate plugin comes with great support
By , for WP 4.3.1

Good plugin that does what it says, sell gift certificates. They have bundle packs that brought more functionality, but you have to use their core, as this lite version is not integrated with their addons. Their support is quick to assist and glad that they're on it. I recommend it to any business that want to sell gift certificates.

Poor Support - No Support
By , for WP 4.3.1

After paying for this product, I encountered some difficulty with the install. Consulted the WPGC website for assistance, consulted the video tutorials (plural). The only thing available is a basic installation video. To get any more assistance you must login? Keep in mind, I just paid for a bundle of products. I contacted their support for my login? Informed that I must pay for a "Membership" Even though the product was supposed to come with 30 Days of Support? So you purchase a product from this company and they hold you hostage for more money to get instructional video support?

Stay away from them, they are unethical and canceled my purchase because I questioned their policy and practices.

VERY HAPPY

Got a warning,..

Warning: Missing argument 2 for wpdb::prepare(), called in
/home/admin91173177/public_html/myskindeals/wp-content/plugins/gift-certificates-lite/gift-certificates-lite.php
on line 892 and defined in

But thanks to the team, they really help me a lot to sort out and fix the warning,...

NICE PLUGIN, Works fine...

Great product and extremely helpful customer service
By , for WP 4.2.2

I added this to my website and it is all in working order.
I emailed support and they were very quick to get back to me and extremely helpful with their guidance on getting it all set up. I had some error messages come through because of server I run and the way it handled the code, but support was able to fix this for me very quickly. I also had some confusion around linking PayPal which they guided me through and helped me test it to make sure that it was linked correctly, which it was.

5 out of 5 would definitely recommend.

It works, for what it is
By , for WP 4.1

So, to counter the other good/bad reviews....

What isn't clearly explained is that to make this work you add the shortcode
[giftcertificateslite]
to the page you want to set up certificate sales on.

This works as expected and takes the user to a PayPal payment screen after they've entered their information, after which it will track your certificates for you.

The downsides (what it won't do):

*Can only create certificates with one pre-set dollar amount
*No easy way to design or add your logo and the design of the certificate is VERY basic and no frills

For me, those two downsides make this plugin unusable, but they might not be dealkillers for you, so YMMV.

There are a great deal more options in the paid version, but it's frankly a little pricey for what we need at this time.

Great customer service
By , for WP 3.9.2

Had a major issue on a holiday weekend and got great response and support, including tracking the source of one of the issues to my theme. The install, updates, and set up of this theme are a bit laborious, but once it works it works exceptionally well. No hesitation to suggest.

Tried to ask questions and ip was blocked
By , for WP 3.9.1

I tried to ask questions on the commercial paid version and got my ip blocked. Poor customer service.

Very happy
By , for WP 3.7.1

Highly recommended! I am using it for my SPA business. Very easy to setup and a lot of customization for my business needs. I had issue with Paypal IPN, created a ticket and they help resolved the problem within a day. They really do support on their product and keeping the customer happy.

Euro isn't included in the currency dropdown
By , for WP 3.7.1

Would love the chance to try it out, but the plug in doesn't support euro and therefore is incompatible with an entire continent.

Really disappointing
By , for WP 3.6.1

Sounded so promising, no obvious way to integrate into pages... pointless.
