Manage Gift Categories

For Administrators

Overview

If a large range of gift items is offered, they can be arranged into categories to make it easier for purchasers to sort and select their choice from your web shop.

There are two ways of displaying categories:

  1. All gifts are displayed with a drop-down menu to sort on different voucher categories e.g. Monetary, dining, accommodation, spa.

    This is suitable if you sell 10-15 gifts of different types.
  1. Gifts of the same type are displayed behind a category image. This is used if you sell many options of different types of gifts. E.g. you may wish to display gifts under: Monetary, Dining, Spa and Accommodation. Further subcategories are also possible. This option can also be used if you manage gift voucher sales for multiple venues from a single One Tree account. The gifts are displayed by venue.

Gifts can be displayed under more than one category. E.g. Spa day with afternoon tea, could be displayed under Spa and Dining. Add the required categories when creating a gift item.

A temporary category may be set up prior to Christmas, Mother’s Day etc and gifts particularly relevant to that event can be published in that category. This category must be unpublished manually after the gifting event has taken place. Similarly a ‘special offers’ category could be set up and a small range of gifts offered at a discounted price at particular times.
