Step 2. Specify How Gift Certificates Depend on Order Statuses

The conditions when a customer can use a gift certificate aren’t set in stone. A purchased gift certificate is a part of the order, and its status can change depending on the status of the order. To configure this dependency:

  1. Go to Administration → Order statuses.

  2. Click on the desired order status to open its editing page.

  3. Set the value of the Change gift certificate status to setting.

  4. Click Save. Now, when an order gets this status, the status of the gift certificate will change accordingly.
