I need to invent gift cards as products in my store. I realized that you can do this in Magento Go,

What about Magento Community version? Can I invent gift cards in this version?

I have seen there are a lot gift card extensions, but they all needed to be paid. Just wonder if any free gift card extensions around?

And here is one I found on a simple search. I haven't used it, but, like you asked, it is free.

I know you may not want to use a paid extension but I can recommend you this one http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/unirgy-giftcert.html. I've used it in the past and it's worth the money.
I'm in no way associated with the extension provider. I just used it and liked it.

  • One thing to note with Unirgy though is that you're required to install IonCube which Unirgy uses to obfuscate their code, I've always found that a little annoying (code obfuscation for an extension built for an open source platform) – Moose Jun 27 '14 at 11:00
  • @moose. Oh. I didn't know that. When I used their extension a long time ago the code was not obfuscated. I will stop recommending this extension from now on if that is the case. – Marius Jun 27 '14 at 11:14
  • Devsters_Gift_Cards has a bug I think - you get shipping method options on your cart and checkout page, which it should not be there in the first first because the gift card is non ship-able product. – laukok Jun 27 '14 at 12:31
