Your audience will see the option to "Give as a gift" when purchasing a pass after you enable gift passes with the click of a button!
Enable gift purchases
Open the Pass Bucket edit page, scroll down, and select "Allow pass to be purchased as a gift." Don't forget to click Save!
After enabling gift purchases, your audience will see the option to select "Give as a gift" when buying a pass from this Pass Bucket!
You can also link directly to a gift sales page by adding ?gift=true to the Pass Sales Page URL. You can find your Pass Sales Page URL in the General Settings tab:
To share a URL that goes directly to the "Give as Gift" page for this pass, you would copy the URL and add ?gift=true to the end -- for example: https://meredithtest.eventive.org/passes/buy/all_access_2021?gift=true
Sharing this URL in a promotional email or on social media is a great way to encourage your audience to buy passes as gifts!
A pop-up window appears after they place their gift order, and they'll see the options to:
Download the gift certificate
Click “Send to recipient” to email the gift directly to their recipient, with an optional message
Click "Copy claim link" to copy the gift URL, which they would then share with their recipient in order to claim their gift
Additionally, after someone purchases a gift pass, they will receive a gift certificate, sent in the form of a PDF attachment via email. The gift certificate has a unique link to redeem the pass, which they can then forward to the gift recipient!
