If your store offers gift cards or gift certificates, first be sure to enable Gift Cards in Back Office, then refer to the steps below to set up and sell a gift card.
Note: Green Bits does not support electronic gift card processing or liabilities reporting.
Create a Product for gift cards
In order to sell a gift card at the register, we'll need to create a Product for it:
- Create a new Product Type specifically for gift cards, and make it non-marijuana and non-taxable.
- Go to Inventory > Products, then select + Add Product
- Set Unit of Measure to units
- Add a name and any other desired information in the Details tab, then select the Pricing tab
- Select Price At Register, so customers can specify how much they want to add to a gift card at the time of purchase
Add a SKU and inventory
Follow this process to create a SKU and add quantity to your gift card Product. A SKU and inventory must be assigned to the Product before it will be available to ring up in the Register app.
If you don't keep a specific count of gift cards on hand, add a large quantity such as 10,000 - enough that you'll rarely, if ever, need to add more quantity.
Sell a gift card
In the Register app, tap Add to look up your gift card by name, or print a barcode for gift cards and stick it near the point of sale so budtenders can easily scan it just like any other item.
Add/scan the gift card, enter the amount the customer wants, then tap the check mark.
Complete the sale as normal.
Accept gift cards as payment
Add items to a transaction and tap Charge.
On the Pay With Cash screen, select Other Payment Methods.
Select Gift Card, then enter the value of the gift card, or any other amount the customer wants to tender to their gift card.
If the gift card balance isn't enough to cover the total, select additional payment method(s) for the remainder
The remaining amount is automatically entered. Enter a different amount at this point if needed. Otherwise, tap Save.
Tap Tender to complete the transaction.
