Gift Certificates

When a customer BUYS a Gift Certificate, what they are in effect doing, is purchasing CREDIT at Bookstall. This "credit" has the value of the Gift Certificate they have just bought.

The "credit" value is identified by a unique code assigned to that purchase, and it is this code that becomes a "negotiable instrument" within the context of Bookstall. By "negotiable" I mean that it is transferable. It can be "redeemed" by anyone who possesses that code number.

So, once the customer has purchased a Gift Certificate his account is "credited" with the value of the purchase.

The customer can then either USE the credit value himself (redeemed at checkout), or "send" (transfer) the credit to someone else (via e-mail).

He can send ALL of the credit value, or a portion of it.

The workings and management all happen in the background, so if a customer buys a $10 voucher, and decides to sent only $5 to someone, he uses the "e-mail a gift voucher" function within Bookstall to do the sending.

Bookstall works out that the customer wants to send only $5 of the $10 that is available, so creates a NEW code number that is "worth" $5.

When the recipient of the e-mail receives the message, the code is there for them to use. Bookstall knows that the code they received is worth $5. They then have to come to Bookstall, create an account, and either "credit" their new account with the $5 (by using the redeem function), or they can off-set its value against a purchase during checkout. (Basically the same thing).

They are not obliged to use the credit value and can keep it in their account, or they may even send it (or part of it) to someone else. So it is TRANSFERABLE within the environment of Bookstall.

These Gift Certificates are NOT real products, so cannot be printed out and put in an envelope and redeemed in a bricks-and-mortar shop. They are purely virtual., his account is "credited" with the value of the purchase.
