That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I got an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you help..
No...what you described is a gift certificate....which is part of the contrib. the other part you are missing is the ability to create a coupon or voucher or whatever. Let's say I want to offer $10 off a specific product or even a whole category....this will allow you to give your future customers a coupon code (ex. df53f) and the ability for them to enter it during the checkout process to benefit from the deal...
You can also offer Gift Certificates at a discount. i.e. a $20 GC on sales for $15 ... something Best Buy does frequently...
Ok......so how many functions is this for Credit Class & Gift Voucher? Can I create vocher and coupon and gift certificate????.............
Just still a bit of confused of gift certificate....wouldn't this be the same as vouchers???.
And do you just give a code out to customers?? And they just all have to do is put the code during checkout process??(one for each coupon, vocher and gift certificat..right???).

Hello, sorry to ask this stupid quesiton but somehow I don't know why lots of people setting up Credit Class & Gift Voucherochures....i mean isn't voucher the same as "You still need to buy the coupon as you pay to buy???".
Like $100 coupon is purchased at $100 price(am I right? You don't just give to some customers free??.
)...and what is the real difference between voucher and coupons????..
As you say, you still need to purchase the voucher. And this is where it is different from a coupon, which is generally given freely and entitles the recipient to some benefit for gratis (i.e. free shipping, or 20% off, etc).
With a voucher...it is usually treated like a gift card...generally, the preson buying the voucher, is not the one whom it is intended will spend the voucher. Vouchers are usually purchased as gifts for someone else to use by redeeming at your store..
Which is a good idea, marketing-wise, because if a person is shopping for somethign as a gift, and cannot decide on an item, they can purchase a gift voucher, passs it on to the recipient, who then visits your store and buys what THEY want, as opposed to something the original visitor may have bought and have it prove unsatisfactory..
Also, you CAN give vouchers free as perhaps a reward to a valued customer, or as a loss leader....there are many reasons and uses for both vouchers AND coupons..
Yeah, I know, I can get verbose, but do you see the difference now, and the marketing benefits?..
