Social Gifting Configuration Parameters
The image to the right shows the configuration parameters available for gifting at the wallet level. This information is not visible to guest or merchant users, but is included here to illustrate the options a merchant has in configuring these features.
Card Template – The Send button will only show for the specific card templates selected.
Source Wallet – The Send button will only show for the specific wallets selected.
Source Amount – Normally set to 1. This is the amount that will be decremented from the source wallet with a gift.
Destination Wallet – For Earned Reward sharing this is the same wallet as the source wallet. For Pay It Forward RewardSM gifting, the destination wallet is different than the source.
Destination Amount – Normally set to 1. This is the amount that will be added to the destination wallet when the gift is accepted. If an open dollar discount is given (e.g. $5.00 comp dollars, the destination amount might be 5.00).
Transfer Expiration Days – This is the number of days that the gift can sit in limbo; that is, after the gift is given and before it is accepted. Pick an amount that gives the recipient time to accept the gift e.g. 10-‐ 14 days. If this expiration period lapses, the gift is automatically returned to the giver.
Destination Expiration Days – This parameter sets the expiration of a reward from the time it is accepted. The recipient is guaranteed to have this many days to use her reward. This is a guest friendly setting, as it does not penalize the recipient for time waiting to give the reward or receive it. However, it may be possible for guests to pass rewards around to friends and extend their life.
Use Source Expiration – If this is checked, the gift will keep the original expiration date of the source wallet. So if I have a reward that expires in 3 days and give that reward to a friend, the reward will expire in 3 days. This prevents any gaming of the system. However, rewards may expire before a guest has a chance to accept them.
Prevent Gifting on Account Balance Screen – This will prevent the Send button from showing on the account balance screen. This would allow gifting from other applications such as a phone app, but prevent gifting from the guest website.
