Shopify recently opened the Gift Card feature on all account types previously only available on the Shopify Plus Package. The Gift card feature allows the customer to buy a Gift card and helps the business with the cash flow as the customers are paying upfront to be redeemable later. However, if you are using multiple systems, and you want to centralize the buying process in Shopify and still have other apps you have to figure out how to integrate them together. If you’re using Booker as your Booking platform and have a Shopify store, you might wonder if it is possible to sell a Gift Card in Shopify but redeemable in Booker online and on Booker Point of Sale. The answer is yes, using Pandaflow, you will be able to sync both systems in real-time. When the customer buys a Git Card in Shopify, the integration process will instantly create a Gift Certificate in Booker.
