    Online Gift Cards are an additional revenue booster for your business and also allow you to use less paper in the salon. It is a must-have feature for any successful business. 


    Go to Manager and Settings. Click Online.



    Under the online settings, there is a Gift Card Sales tab. Switch the tab to Yes



    You are now set up to sell online gift cards through your online booking platform. The branding color will link with the color you have set up for your Online Booking.

    By enabling Online Gift Vouchers you are agreeing to the following terms: Gift Voucher payments are subject to a 5% processing fee. All fees will be deducted before the payout is deposited in your bank account.


    NB for salons processing Gift Vouchers during the Coronavirus crisis


    Phorest has reduced the processing fee to 4% until Government direction allows for the reopening of salons in your country. A further 10% of the balance will be held and the maximum Gift Voucher amount is set at 150 until salon business returns to normal. When your business reopens, the remaining 10% will be deposited into your account. These stipulations are set by our payments processing partner and outside of Phorest's control.

    There will be a max amount of gift cards you can sell which will be based on your regular turnover which will be 20% of your regular turnover in gift card value. So, if you usually process $100,000 in a month, you will be able to sell $20,000 during a month while the pandemic lasts. We will lift this limit afterwards. 


    By enabling online gift cards you are agreeing to the following terms. Gift card payments are subject to the standard (1.5-3% depending on card type) transaction processing fee. All fees will be deducted daily during the crisis.


    The maximum gift card amount someone can pledge to your salon at any one time is $400. This is set by our payments processor partner.  A minimum and maximum pledge amount will appear on the screen when adding a value.
