Guest We were hoping to sell gift cards online for our restaurant. Many people are complaining about them being stolen in the mail, so a printable receipt with a unique bar code per purchase would be a great alternative to our cheap shipping option that has no insurance. Since we already have our shopping cart online is there a way we could tie the bar codes and scanners into our web site's database for orders?

Our solutions team can help integrate a bar code design software like Bartender into your web system such that your end users can print a receipt for the gift card to avoid losing them in the mail. When a customer comes to your business with the bar coded receipt we can make sure this data is transferred to your POS system so when they are scanned the credit can be applied to their orders.
