    Hello, Not sure what I am doing wrong.

    I created a product in VirtueMart.
    Created a Template (gift certificate) in AWOcoupon.
    Created a Gift Certificate and selected product and template.

    When i go to purchase the item, I enter my certificate code in "coupon", spring101 in this case, and i get this message...
    "Coupon code not found"

    Hello,

    It sounds like you are mixing 2 different things here. One function is for creating gift certificates to sell. And the other is using a gift certificate code (created or purchased). Did you setup spring101 in awocoupon->new coupon as a gift certificate that is published?

    What i want to do is the following...

    I want to give a coupon code to users. When users get this coupon code, i.e., $25 off, they can enter this code during checkout when purchasing an item (gift certificate).



    So, at checkout they enter coupon code and get discount. Then they should receive an email of the gift certificate with unique code, correct?



    I setup spring101 as a template (awocoupon>new coupon)... am i doing this wrong?

    spring101 is a template coupon used to generate different codes once a customer purchases. It cannot be used in the front end, it is just a template. In order to give your customers $25 off you will need to create the coupon code (published) and then pass it along to the customer.

    Are you saying in order to create a "gift certificate"
    we need to go to

    Coupons > New > Gift Certificate?

    So we do not have to create a template?

    If i create a gift certificate with code "spring", is it always unlimited usage?

    What is the point of template?

    The point of the template is to use when selling a gift certificate
    http://awodev.com/blog/sell-gift-certificates-online-your-virtuemart-store

    If you want a gift certificate code that can be used in the front end for purchasing other products then you create it in
    awocoupon->new coupon

    if you want to sell gift certificates to customers who will later use the gift certificate they bought in your store to buy products then you use the blog to create it.
