I noticed this morning that there is a "gift card" product type. I've had a quick play with it and it looks like the product view template is ideal for this type of product, as it includes customisable prices and sender/recipient information fields etc.

Assuming I have ten different "designs" of gift cards, is there a way that I can group these "gift card" products under a configurable product with a "design" configurable attribute?

At the moment I can see how to create a single "gift card" product and have it display as I wish in the frontend, but I'd like to be able to use a configurable for this so the user can also choose a "design" from a list of ten.

Note: configurable attribute "design" is created, unique attribute set exists for these products, and the configuration is currently working fine with a configurable, many virtual products and some custom templates, but I'm looking to do more of this out-of-the-box if possible.

Unfortunately this is not possible out of the box with EE as the documentation states you can only do the same operation with gift card type as simple products: http://docs.magento.com/m1/ee/user_guide/catalog/product-gift-card-create.html

I don't have an EE instance available right now but creating a configurable product and setting the associated products as gift cards don't work from my knowledge.

The only alternative you've got left is the custom module / extension way.

  • I'm fine with custom modules etc if required, just trying to understand what is required. Could a "custom option" or something act as a suitable replacement in this instance, so I might just have one "gift card product" with a custom option for my configurable attribute?

  • @RobbieAverill I think custom options could do it just give it a try Commented Jul 17, 2016 at 23:34
  • I gave it a go, but couldn't seem to get them to show up in the template... they're not specific to certain kinds of products are they?

  • @RobbieAverill I don't think they are but again I don't have an EE available right now so I may be wrong Commented Jul 18, 2016 at 7:19
