I'm seeing if anyone knows of a good program a way about doing this Gift Certificate system. I have a client who wants a Electronic Gift Certificate system that customers can put in whatever amount they want on it and then the form will generate a random number to put on the Gift Certificate and include all the information on the form with it. I have found some payed programs for it. The best I found so far charges $100 to do and takes a 5% commission per transaction. This would not be bad if the commission was like 3%.
Well, we are trying to go through a company and do it. If I knew how to design it myself I would. I've been trying to find code on how to get a gift certificate to take the price that the customer set and automatically pop it up with a ready made print gift certificate. The site we looked at was Spaboom.com it charges a 5% commission on each gift certificate. It is just like the bank charging 2.5-3% for their credit card processing fees too.
