Did you know that the gift cards you know and love can now be purchased by clients online? Whether they want to treat themselves or a loved one, they can purchase a gift card and receive a code to share with the lucky gift recipient. 📩
This feature is the first step for our online gift cards, and is a great way for smaller clinics that don’t have a third-party gift card system to attract new clients through gift-giving, and have a little extra income, too!
If you’d like a refresher on how our gift cards work, you can read the overview here.
Let’s get started!
Setting up Online Gift Cards
Setting up Online Gift Cards couldn’t be simpler. We’ll head to Settings on the top bar of Jane and select Billing Settings on the left menu:
In the Gift Cards section, we have three settings to look at.
- The first checkbox simply enables Gift Cards for your Jane account (to be sold administratively).
- The second checkbox allows clients to purchase gift cards online. If your clinic doesn’t offer online booking, your clients will still be able to purchase gift cards with this setting enabled.
- The third setting is the maximum amount that can be loaded onto a gift card. The default maximum is $200, but you can customize it. Please note, there is a mandatory $10 minimum for gift cards.
Once you’ve checked off boxes one and two, and you’re happy with the maximum gift card amount, you can click Save Billing Information at the bottom of the screen.
We’re finished setting up! 🎉
Adding a link to your website
If you want to get fancy, you can embed the link to purchase gift cards on your own website.
First, you can head to your own online booking site by clicking on your name in the top right corner of Jane and selecting Online Booking Site.
Next, we’ll select any location (if you have more than one) and click the Buy Gift Card button to the left, then click Sign In To Buy Gift Card.
Once you’re signed in, you should come to this screen:
You can copy the URL from this page and add it to your website. This will make it even faster for clients to get to the good stuff.
Fantastic! Let’s take a look at the client’s experience of purchasing a gift card online.
When a client visits your online booking site, they’ll see a Buy Gift Card button to the left of the page.
Please note, if you have more than one location listed on your online booking site, the client will need to choose a location before they see the button. This is just part of our site design, but clinics will still be able to redeem their gift card at any of your clinic locations.
Once your client clicks the Buy Gift Card button, they’ll see the message below and they can click Sign In To Buy Gift Card.
The client will be prompted to sign in or create an account to proceed. Once they are logged in, they’ll come to the page below, where they can choose how much money they’d like to load their gift card with.
On the right, they can view a price list of all your shared treatments or services that are listed on your online booking site. If your services don’t include tax in the price listed online, then clients will see the service subtotal. This gives them an idea of how much to load the card with in order to gift someone a specific service.
Once they’ve chosen the amount to load, your clients can specify their preferred payment method. They can choose between any saved cards they’ve got on file, or they can add a new credit card before clicking the Create Gift Card button.
Last step! The client will now want to copy the Redemption Code and send it to the lucky gift card recipient. Although we’re working on a more delightful way to share this code with the gift recipient, we currently do not have a way to email this code directly through Jane, so this part is up to the client.
At any point, the client can view the gift cards they’ve purchased from their My Account page by clicking the Gift Cards button on the left menu:
- How does the gift card recipient get their code?
- Can clients redeem gift cards online?
- Where can clients see which gift cards they’ve purchased?
- Can staff see a client’s gift card code from the admin side of Jane?
- What payment methods are accepted to purchase gift cards?
- My clinic has multiple Jane Payments accounts. Which one does the gift card sale get paid out to?
- Can a gift card be reloaded online?
How does the gift card recipient get their code?
The person who purchases the gift card will need to send the code to the lucky gift recipient manually. The purchaser will see the code on the Gift Card Purchased screen after they purchase the gift card:
They can also see a list of all the gift cards they’ve purchased, along with the codes, from their My Account page by clicking on Gift Cards on the menu to the left:
Can clients redeem gift cards online?
The gift card can’t be redeemed online through Jane Payments, but the recipient can redeem their gift card by providing the code they received to the clinic.
Where can clients see which gift cards they’ve purchased?
Clients can see gift cards they’ve purchased on their My Account page by selecting Gift Cards on the menu to the left. They can also find the gift card redemption codes here too.
Can staff see a client’s gift card code from the admin side of Jane?
Yes, staff can view the gift cards and redemption codes that a client has purchased from their Billing tab under Gift Cards:
What payment methods are accepted to purchase gift cards?
Because gift cards purchased online must be done through the Jane Payments integration, clients can pay by credit card. For online transactions, Jane Payments accepts Amex, Visa, Visa Debit, Mastercard, Debit Mastercard, Discover, Diner Club, and UnionPay.
My clinic has multiple Jane Payments accounts. Which one does the gift card sale get paid out to?
Excellent question! When a gift card is purchased, that money is deposited into the primary Jane Payments Account. The primary account is the one that was added to your Jane Account first. When you head to Settings on the top bar of Jane and select Jane Payments on the left menu, you’ll see a list of your different Jane Payments accounts. The first one listed is the primary.
If your clinic has multiple Jane Payments Accounts and you’d like to use our Online Gift Card feature, then let me show you how you can track those gift card sales so that you can manually compensate a practitioner if needed.
Can a gift card be reloaded online?
Not at this time, though gift cards can be reloaded administratively for a client.
