Tip ! If you offer gift certificates, create a new Receipt Type called 'GC' or 'Gift Certificate.' Do not publish this receipt to the internet since you probably don't want guests paying for an online booking with a gift certificate. When a gift certificate is actually redeemed, issue a receipt and enter the gift certificate number in the Notes field to maintain a record(See "Working with Receipts" on page cxiv) . You may run a Receipts Report for a date range to generate a list of all gift certificates redeemed with the note containing the certificate number. (See "Receipts Report" on page cxxxv) . Be sure to set up an inventory item for gift certificates to record their sale (See "Configuring the Inventory System" on page lx) and then a complete record of when a Gift Certificate is ISSUED and when it is REDEEMED is available through BookingCenter.
