About step 5: "filling in the details"

Product name

Add a name for the e-voucher. This will show up on the Toggle shop and on the e-voucher the customer gets.

Product description

This will be displayed on the Toggle shop only (on the homepage).

Product long description

This will be displayed on the product main page on the Toggle shop.

Webshop value options

These are the values you make available for purchase on the Toggle shop. You can pre-set these values and/or make allow the customer to choose a custom amount.

Number available

If you want to put a limit on the number of times this e-voucher can be purchased on the Toggle shop, set a limit here. This is really only useful/needed if you're doing a promotional campaign and want to avoid overselling - otherwise leave this blank.

Type of fulfilment available

When you start with Toggle, this is set to digital only, but if you want to sell physical gift cards online as well we'll need to help you with the designing and printing before we can add a physical purchase option.

Product status

This can be set to 'active' or 'inactive'. Set it to active so the product url is accessible on the Toggle shop. Set the product to inactive if you want it to be totally inaccessible and stop any sales.

Webshop status

This can be set to 'public' or 'private' and these options are only available if the Product status is active. Set to public for the product to be visible on your Toggle shop and set to private if you don't want the product visible on your Toggle shop but would like it accessible through a direct url.

Cards should become active

This is set to 'immediately' by default and this is a standard option. But you can set a delayed activation for your digital voucher of up to a week if you wanted to.

Valid after

Similar to the above, you can choose to select a date in the future to make the gift card activated from. This might be useful for promotional campaigns or venue openings where you want to restrict when the voucher can be used from.

Expire card balance

You don't have to set an expiry date for your voucher but we recommend you do as you don't really want liability floating around for your accountants to wonder about! 12 months is a typical time frame. If you're based in Ireland or outside the UK please check your national laws/ regs for minimum expiry dates - e.g. in Ireland it's 5 years.

Send reminder email

If you set an expiry date then you can also set a reminder email to be sent to the customer to remind them to use their voucher before it expires (if they still have money left on the voucher to spend).

What is a digital voucher?

Just to make sure terminology doesn't get confusing, a digital voucher is something purchased on your online Toggle shop and sent to someone by email. The voucher will land in the person's email inbox.

Different names are used to describe a digital voucher, but we are always referring to the same thing. Other names you might hear are: "e-vouchers", "digital gift cards", or maybe "gift emails".

How will my digital voucher show on the Toggle shop?

Once you've saved your voucher on the dashboard, click on the 'My Shop Link" found on the sidebar of the dashboard to access your Toggle shop.

The below picture is how your Toggle shop can look with all sorts of products available ranging from physical gift cards, experiences, and digital vouchers.
