Ability for any VM2 product to be sold as a gift certificate based on value of a custom field

    It would be great if it were possible to set up a custom field in VM2 (or some other method) which had values for "Receive as a gift certificate": Yes/No.
    If "No" is selected then the sale is completed as normal and processed by VM2
    Should the customer select "Yes" then VM completes the transaction and AWO coupon is triggered to generate and email a gift certificate for that specific product.

    AFAIK currently to add gift certificates for all products in a VM catalogue you would need to duplicate all products and add them in as Gift certificate products in AWOcoupon, this also has the drawback that the front end now contains 2 copies of each product, one which is a normal product and one which is a gift certificate of that product.

    A better solution would be to have a simple Yes/No option for the customer that dictates whether the product is sold normally or as a gift certificate.
    I guess you could set the gift certificate product to be a child product of the normal product and have the gift certificate option selectable that way but this quickly becomes a chore to manage with lots of duplication.

    Not sure if this is possible based on how AWOcoupon works, but I think it would be a great addition if its possible to do.

    Thanks for a great product & support.
