Pre-sale question/scenario

Pre-sale question/scenario

Hi again! I have another pre-sale question. Here is the scenario:

I have a local restaurant but also offer online food delivery ordering. My customer purchases a gift card from my website for $50. The customer decides they want to apply $25 towards an online food delivery order using another 3rd party script or possibly virtuemart. The customer then decides they want to spend the remaining $25 in the store for a sit down dinner. What would be the process from beginning to end and how will the balance on the card be tracked?

Thanks for your time.

Chris

Re: Pre-sale question/scenario

Hello Chris

The scenario with VirtueMart is perfect for the web, all the balance is done in Virtuemart. And you have nothing to do.

For the in-store part, this is more difficult, (maybe), because the only thing you need to do if someone come in-store with the gift card, is open Virtue mart and search the number in the coupons section and you have the card balance there.

You need a computer with internet in store and teach the staff how to use it.

Also if you have a current system in-store for plastic gift card, It's possible to do a bridge between Virtue mart and the in-store system, it need work but I already did it for a customer, any php developer could do the trick. ( IF THE IN-STORE SYSTEM ALLOW IT)

Regards

Thanks for your support

Re: Pre-sale question/scenario

each card has a bar code you could use that to track the balance not sure how to implement that though
