    1. Is there a way to assign a different mailing for a gift subscrption if I would make gift membership products?

    In other words, if I make products that are "gifts" (bought by members for other people)
    Can the person who is recieveing the gifted membership be sent a email that states they were given this subscrition as a gift as well as contain the ID and PW the buyer used to register them?

    2. Is there a way to make a Sign-up page that is just for gifted memberships? example, it would only read from the product list the ones that contain gift in the name? Thus it would be possible on the normal Sign-up to only show non gifted products.

    If none of this is possible at least it will give you suggestions on your next upgrade of aMember.

    1. We have such a plugin for Pro version. it costs $40.

    2. Again, it is possible to assign Price group to product in pro version and it will be possible.

    I figured it out.....just need to make copy of signup html and singup.php and rename them build a normal form on html page with correct values of products called gifts and upload the pages to the server. It works for discounts as well. ;)

    Just makes for a big product list

    I can't find the plugin you're referring to. Can you provide details for that, or to using Price group.

    Thanks,

    Here is plugin readme:
    ------------What does this module do?
    -------------------------
    You can create new products and set flag that it is gift subscription.
    If user is going to order it, he has to enter email of another person
    When user orders this product, aMember generates new discount coupon
    (one-time usage, for paid amount) and send coupon code to "another
    person".

    How do I install this module?
    --
    1. Upload files to
    amember/plugins/protect/gift_vouchers/
    2. Enable "Gift_Vouchers" module at aMember CP -> Setup -> Plugins.
    and
    Enable "Use Coupons" at aMember CP -> Setup -> Advanced
    3. Create new product(s) and mark them as "Is Gift Voucher?"
    Only product title, description and price makes sense. Subscription
    period and other settings will not be used. Also, you may assign
    a negative price group value if you want to hide this product
    from regular signup page.
    4. Now, add text fields to your signup template
    (edit templates/signup.html, or templats/signup_multi.html if you
    have "Select Multiple Products" option enabled in Setup).
    after these lines
    -----------------
    <tr>
    <th><b><label for="country">Country</label></b><br>
    <small></small></th>
    <td nowrap><select name=country id=country size=1>
    {html_options options=$config.country_options selected=$smarty.request.country}
    </select>
    </td>
    </tr>
    {/if}
    -----------------
    add the following lines
    <tr>
    <th colspan=2 style='text-align: center'><b>GIFT CERTIFICATE</b></th>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <th><b><label for="voucher_email">Email to send gift certificate</label></b><br>
    <small>please enter it if you are ordering gift certificate</small></th>
    <td nowrap>
    <input type=text name=voucher_email value="{$smarty.request.voucher_email|escape}">
    </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <th><b><label for="voucher_comment">Comment to send with gift certificate</label></b><br>
    <small>please enter it if you are ordering gift certificate</small></th>
    <td nowrap>
    <textarea name=voucher_comment rows=5 cols=50>{$smarty.request.voucher_comment}</textarea>
    </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <th><b><label for="voucher_date">Date to send gift certificate</label></b><br>
    <small>if you want to delay gift certificate sending, <br>
    enter date value (mm/dd/yyyy) into this field.<br>
    If you keep this field empty, certificate will be sent immediately
    </small></th>
    <td nowrap>
    <input type=text name=voucher_date value="{$smarty.request.voucher_date|escape}" size=11 maxlength=10>
    </td>
    </tr>

    5. Try to make test purchase of your new product.
    6. Edit mail templates in "gift_vouchers" folder and repeat step (5)
    if necessary. Don't touch text inside {...} brackets.
    --------------------------------------------------


    Price Group is described at aMember CP -> Manage Products, have a look to comments near "Price Group" product field.

    Is this Gift certificate plugin still available and will it work with the current version of aMember 3.2.3PRO?

    Is this not possible by using a coupon covering the full cost of the product?

    Quick question on this plugin. I have a lot of different membership types setup in my system, some active, some not. Would these "gift vouchers" be tied to specific product or would they just be a coupon code that would appear in the recipients Member Page after the transaction was completed - to which they could apply to any available membership option?

    Also, is the recipient required to have an existing account or would their redemption email contain a link to create an account and automatically attach their coupon code to the account?

    Thanks in advance!

    1. By default it's attached to a product. But both ways are possible.
    2. It will have link to signup page with coupon code.

    Thanks for the quick reply, much appreciated. I have 2 follow-up questions if you don't mind.

    1. How difficult would it be to setup the gift vouchers so that the purchasing customer is basically buying a "coupon code" good for any product on the site? Tying the gift voucher to a single product really doesn't suit my business model. However, a gift voucher that can be redeemed toward any active product on my site DOES suit me. I would imagine there would be a product in the system called "gift voucher" that when purchased would create a unique coupon code tied to the email address of the person specified during checkout?

    2. Since the signup page is shared between new users and existing users, I assume the gift vouchers can be redeemed by those that already have an account with us AND those that are first time customers?

    Thanks again!

    Hi,
    1. Sorry actually I was wrong. It is not tyed to a product. Coupon will be created for given amount, and it can be used for any product.
    2. yes both will be able to purchase it.

    What happens if the coupon code is for a dollar amount and the recipient doesn't use the entire amount? In other words, the product they purchase is less than the coupon amount.

    It will work the same way as if coupon discount = product price.
