Gift Certificates

The Professional and Enterprise editions of the software can help you manage gift certificate and gift card sales, redemptions, and donations. Find out how to check the available balance and run reports too!

Please note: Because we are continually updating our library of training videos as new versions of our software are released, this video will likely show an older or newer version of StudioPlus Spectra/myStratus than you have installed. Don't worry! The video will still give you a great overview of this feature.
