Allow Gift Cards to be used as payment for online orders
There needs to be an option for using gift cards as payment for online orders. Our processor (Vantiv) said that the eccommerce account is capable of accepting gift card payment, it's just a matter of adding that to the checkout on Thrive Online.
Hi! Thanks for the suggestion about using gift cards to pay online. We are definitely planning to add this functionality and in fact have completed some of the work, however it is a bit more complex because it also requires us to allow multiple payment methods per order (since often a gift card balance may not be sufficient to cover the full order amount). Finishing up this portion is on the roadmap for 2018.

That makes sense, I will add to our wish list the ability to use "Gift" in addition to credit on non-register stations.
Thank you for responding. That makes sense I hadn't thought about that aspect. Adding the gift card tender option to non-cash drawer terminals definitely needs to be done in the mean time though. We only have one cash drawer terminal, so on a Friday or Saturday night it would back us up quite a bit making our pickup customers wait for us to enter a gift card number in for a delivery order.
There should also be an option for gift card payments on terminals that don't have a cash drawer attached to them. They should be set up the same way credit cards are.
