Integrating Gift Cards Into Your Website

This article will instruct the user on methods to integrate their gift card service into their website either natively or through a redirect.

There are 2 main ways you can integrate gift cards into your website. These include:

1. A Button which will redirect the user to the gift card landing page

2. An iframe widget (this is essentially a website hosted within a website) which will keep the user on your website and allow check out to be done without leaving the site.

When using either method, the first important aspect to consider is the custom URL link for the gift card merchant page. Without this link, the gift card widget may not be properly displayed on your website or might not correctly redirect to the merchant's gift card app.

Below are the step-by-step instructions to obtain a URL link for a gift card to use on your website:

Step 3

  • Copy the URL link for your custom gift card. N.B the number at the end of the URL is unique to your business so this must be copied to work.

Now we have the custom URL we can look to add this to our website.

  3. Replace https://gift.loylap.com/XXXX with the actual custom gift card URL you want to link to. You can also customize the link text between the tags.

  4. Save the HTML file and open it in a web browser. When you click the link, it should take you to the external website..
