We have integrated our ticketing platform with Gift Up, a leading gift-card provider. With a gift-up account, your customers can buy gift-cards directly from your website, or Prekindle events page. The gift-card funds will be paid to you immediately by Gift Up. Your events will allow customers to enter their gift-card number during checkout to apply the gift-card amount as a discount during checkout.
Note - Your customers can begin purchasing gift-cards immediately, but gift-card support is still under development so some features are not currently available.
You will need a Gift Up account, which is free to create.
Gift Up will pay you through one of the following payment providers. You will need an account with one of these providers to begin selling gift-cards on Gift Up.
Gift Up’s pricing is described here, and can be charged to your customers.
