Is there any way to run a small gift card system in Acumatica?
We are looking to do a promotion where orders over a certain amount receive a gift card. But I'm sure how we could keep track of which customers have a gift card / have used it up.
I wondered about doing a Credit Memo for a gift card, or some Discounts setup, but both ways have issues.
Other's here will know way more than me, but how about a serialized stock item with a negative default price? The "cards" wouldn't be able to update their value at all though if not used in the full amount.
Thanks @Noah, that's a great idea!
There will only be about 50 of these gift cards in total, so we take this idea, and could just do a quote with a non-stock item called gift card against it...then there would be a record on each customer that has one.
You might want to look into creating a Payment Method of GIFTCARD and creating a Prepayment. Payment Ref on prepayment would represent the gift card number. You could use a Non-Stock item pointing to GL of the cash account on the GIFTCARD payment method to sell the giftcards, or only have a Prepayment if you are giving them away. The giftcard prepayment can be applied to open orders and outstanding invoices then.
