Once 99minds Gift card app is installed, we need to hide the default BigCommerce gift certificates page.
First, we need to enable Gift Certificates API for your store. Log in to your BigCommerce account. Go to Marketing > Gift Certificates section. Select the Enable Gift Certificates checkbox. Only if this option is enabled, the customers will be able to purchase and use gift certificates within your store. Click Save to save the Gift Certificate Settings. If you already have the option enabled, skip to the next step below.
When we enable Gift Certificates (and thus the API), Bigcommerce adds a default Gift Certificates page to your store. As we will be installing the 99minds Giftcard Widget on to your store, we need to disable/hide the default Gift Certificates page. To do so, we need to go to Marketing > Gift Certificates section and uncheck the Enable Gift Certificates checkbox.
Yes, we need to enable the Gift Certificates option first and then disable it. This enables the API for 99minds to use and hides the default Gift Certificates page.
