Back to this problem, its one we are really struggling with.
Currently I think we have 6 -7 clients stores running via FC, its our preferred e-Commerce platform when bidding for work, and believe me there is lots we love about FC, actually there is little we don't like ....
But once again, we are coming back to the same old Gift Certificate issue.
We have a particular website where our client wants to sell gift certificates (not discounts), a certificate / voucher with a monetary value they can purchase at the store and use at a later date, or give someone the voucher code to use , which can be redeemable against any product within the store.
I see threads dating back to early 2009 where you guys are discussing integration of a logical certificate solution ... but yet, there is still no update, or timeline for implementation. (from what I can see)
This is genuinely causing us a little heartache, and ultimately in some cases preventing us from using FC for certain projects.
Do you guys have any work around, any custom script you are working on, or anything we can even look at to try and allow us integrate a working voucher / certificate solution.
NOTE TO OTHER DEVS / STORE OWNERS
Have any of you integrated a working gift voucher solution, are you willing to allow us view your work, or indeed purchase, additionally, has anyone used a 3rd party solution to integrate with FC to allow a working Voucher solution ...
At this stage we really need a solution, if we cant find one it may mean moving at least one of our stores away from FC, which is a whole load of ballache for us .... (and the sad thing is everything else on the store works great, and has done for the guts of a year)
Oh, and a happy festive period to you all .....
