We here at MAX200 offer 2 types of Gift Certificates.
A Virtual Gift Certificate is one that is purchased onlne and then sent via email to the recipient where they can use it to make their online purchase. When the purchaser buys a Virtual Gift Certificate everything is done online. The reciepient will receive an email notification that a Gift Certificate has been purchased for them. They will receive an email with a code number in that email telling them the details of the Gift Certificate and explaining to them that it can be redeemed at www.max200.com web site. Once the recipient has the Gift Certificate code number they can now go online and make their purchase. The amount of the Gift Certificate will be deducted from the purchase price of the item the recipient is buying. Any balance on the Gift Certificate will be held in their account to be used at some point in the future.
A Physical Gift Certificate is one that is ordered online and physically mailed to the purchaser so they can physically hand the paper Gift Certificate to the recipient. The reciepient can then go online and make their purchase while entering the code numbers on the physical certificate which will be deducted from their purchase amount.
