Selling a gift card
The article can be selected like any other. This then appears in the cart. KLARA automatically generates a unique code for the corresponding voucher. The customer can redeem their voucher using this code. Therefore, note this on a voucher card which you submit to the customer.
Do you already have pre-printed vouchers including an individual code? You can overwrite the code which KLARA generates for you. To do this, select the function "Create" on the voucher in your cart and enter the code manually in the code line or scan this if you have a barcode on the voucher. Confirm the entered code with the digitiser button on your screen.
Conclude the sale as usual and issue the gift card with the voucher code to the customer.
Redeeming a gift card
To redeem the amount of a gift card against a purchase, on the payment screen you can also select the KLARA Gift Card besides the current debit and credit cards. You will then be requested to enter the voucher code. Type this or scan it in (note large and small letters). NEW the external barcode scanner can be used to scan the voucher.
KLARA gives you the amount available on the gift card and credits this for the payment. You
confirm the payment by redeeming it. The amount is automatically deducted from the gift
Loading a gift card
A gift card can be loaded directly onto the checkout system. To do this, select the gift card item, enter the amount to be loaded and enter the code of the gift card already sold via Scan.
