The Magento Gift Card/Certificate extension allows your visitors to buy gift certificates with any values for further purchases on your website. Customers can spend gift cards themselves or present them to friends with 'Merry Christmas', 'Happy Birthday' or any other greeting messages.

The module adds a new 'Gift Card' product type in Magento backend, which you should choose while creating a new product. Specify native Magento products options, and gift card options: fixed or open amount value, card type (virtual, physical, or combined), and its duration.

On the product page a visitor provides the following information: card amount, sender/recipient name & email, and greeting message to recipient if necessary. The sender name and email fields are filled in with data automatically for a logged in user.

After a gift certificate is bought, a unique gift code is sent to a recipient via email or/and post-office (it depends on the type of the gift card). The code appears in the admin area as well. Store owners can view the history of code usage and update its value and expiration date anytime from the backend. Moreover, the Magento Gift Card/Certificate module allows administrators to create gift card codes manually for specific needs without new product creation.

The status of any gift code and available amount can be checked in recipient’s account as well as at the shopping cart using a special block added by the Magento Gift Card/Certificate module. Buyers can use several certificates per one purchase.


  • New gift card product type
    The module allows you to create 'gift card' product type and sell gift certificates online. Both guests and registered customers can get certificates and use the bought amount themselves or present to anyone to make purchases in your store.
  • Different gift cards values
    You can create cards with open and fixed values. If fixed values are specified for the product, a customer will be able to buy the certificate for any predefined price selected in the dropdown. If a gift card has open value, visitors can define their own value. The administrator can set a limit on the available range of values.
  • Send gift card code via email or post-office
    Gift card codes can be sent to a recipient by email or post-office. It depends on the type of the gift card product:
    • virtual
    • physical
    • combined
    The message left by the buyer of the gift card will be displayed in the email as well.
  • Let customers checkout with the card
    A gift card recipient can insert a code in a separate block added to the shopping cart. Several certificates can be applied together during one checkout and if the certificate value exceeds grand total, the rest of amount is stored for further usage.
  • Control gift card duration
    You can specify the number of days each certificate is valid and can be used at your store to motivate recipients spend it as quickly as possible.
  • Check gift card balance and status at the shopping cart and in My Account area
    Clients can track the status of their gift card code and the available amount in a separate Gift Card tab in My Account area and at the shopping cart.
  • Create gift card codes from the backend
    The module allows you to create gift card codes manually in the backend area without adding a new product. You should specify the value of the card, expiration date, and website the card should be applied to.
  • View code using statistics
    After the gift card code is generated, you can view all the statistics connected with it. The history of code using includes the date of code creating, purposes, and amount of using.
  • Add gift card to any customer from the backend
    You can create orders with gift cards for existing customers from the backend. Just enter email and name of sender/recipient, code value, and the gift card will be sent to required customer.
  • Manage the look of the code
    With the Gift Card/Certificate extension you can configure the following code parameters:
    • length
    • format (alphanumeric, numeric, or alphabetical)
    • prefix
    • suffix
    • separator and quantity of characters inserted after
  • Update code balance manually
    You can easily increase or decrease the amount of gift code. Just enter the required value while editing the code and the gift certificate will become available again.
  • Configure when to generate gift card code
    With the help of the module, you can generate gift card code directly after order item is invoiced or ordered.
  • Gift cards amount can be refunded
    If a customer refunds an order, you can decide what to return first – gift card or any other amount. It is applied only to products that have been bought using gift certificates together with cash.
  • Multistore support

Works like a charm

Review by Martijn | Mar 5, 2015

This extension is easy to use, and very useful for my customers. As always with AheadWorks extensions, they work like a charm thanks to very easy installation en configuration. Great value for money!

Greater than an awesome

Review by Peter | Oct 9, 2014

Installed in 5 minutes under RocketTheme template, worked much better than advertised. A great first experience with aheadWorks! Hope to "work ahead" with you guys :) And I'm sorry that I do not have such beautiful Senior Account Manager like your one :)

Works just as advertised

Review by Dan | Apr 16, 2014

We actually replaced our previous gift card solution for the AheadWorks version. It is much more streamlined and makes it easier for the customer to navigate and purchase. This was one of three modules that we purchased together and we continue to get fantastic support from Ekaterina and the support team at AheadWorks.

Great product

Review by Braydon | Apr 14, 2014

Gift Card is absolutely great. We didn't face any installation issues and the configuration was also just pleasant. We were astonished by the number of options and settings. Customers always positively comment the usability of our gift cards.

You always do the best

Review by Rui | Mar 25, 2014

Every B2C site need a gift card for customers. You really developed a great gift card extension for Magento. I would recommend it to any store owner!!! You always do the best. I will purchase your magento extensions.

Definitely worth having

Review by Benjamin | Jan 28, 2014

As many others, we've got this app on the eve of holiday season. Gift cards sales exceeded our expectation by notable margin, and they are still high, given that the holidays are over.
Purchasing this ext was a good decision, I would recommend it to any store owner.
Regards, Ben

Great Product

Review by Sam | Jan 23, 2014

Bought Gift Card/Certificate Extension when season's celebrations were nearby. A new product type created by the module solves the problem of choice for our customers. We even noticed that our sales increased. Easy configurable this solution perfectly works for our stores. Moreover, it's great that all the gift cards are under our full control.
Warm regards,

Works Great

Review by Matt Harrington | Jan 2, 2014

We've installed this product for several clients and have had no problems; installation and setup was easy and without issue. It works as expected and provides all of the standard functionality expected in a Gift Card module. The module price is competitive, the functionality is comprehensive, and the support (if ever needed) is exceptional.

Awesome product

Review by Ruud Kluivert | Dec 12, 2013

We’ve recently bought this extension and I can confirm that it’s really great in terms of functionality and usefulness. Numerous features implemented in this product make it “must have” for any Magento store. Ability to view code using statistics is the most important one for me as a store owner. The options of this extension is equal and may be even better than the native gift card for Enterprise Edition has. These guys know what merchants need!


Review by Charlie | Dec 6, 2013

I'd been waiting for this extension since I saw it being developed, and now, my wait is over %)!
Just in time before the holidays are here, I've already got it installed and ready for the sales.
