I am trying to offer gift codes for digital books on my site and can not seem to get them to work. I set up the one time codes in the ejunkie platform, followed their directions, etc, but when I did a test purchase nothing worked correctly. My understanding is that after purchasing an item as a gift, the purchaser pays for the item, and then is provided a gift code to send to someone else who can then use that code on my site to download the books. Instead, after I purchase a gift, the sale goes through, PayPal and Google, and then I am presented with a link to download "Gift" . No code is ever presented, but I did get a notice that my inventory of codes was reduced now to four since I only started with five for testing purposes. I was careful to use the correct buy now button codes for PP and Google and only copied the codes after any changes to price etc was made. Purchasing the products not as a gift work fine, but the gift set up does not.
I want a customer to be able to purchase a book as a gift for a friend, pay for it, then receive a gift code they can forward to their friend who can go to my site, enter the code and receive the gift. Does anyone know how to set this up in ejunkie?
Thanks for any assistance.
