How can I change the message or recipient information of a gift card?

Go to the History tab of the Rewards Dashboard and search for your gift. Select the gift and then choose Update Gift from the Actions tab in the upper right corner.

How can I resend a gift to a recipient who says they haven't received it?

Go to the History tab of the Rewards Dashboard and search for your gift. Select the gift and then choose Resend Gift from the Actions tab in the upper right corner. A gift can be resent once every six hours.

I'd prefer not to receive thank you messages from gift recipients. Can I turn that feature off?

Admins can disable thank you messages in the Settings tab. The setting is organization wide.

Rewards History

How can I view past purchases?

Go to the History tab in the Rewards Dashboard. You can take gift-level actions such as updating gift information and resending rewards.

How can I download a spreadsheet of past purchases?

Go to the History tab and search for the set of reward information you'd like to download. Click the download button in the upper right and a spreadsheet will be automatically compiled and emailed to you.

Who can view team purchase histories?

Admins can view purchases made by all team members. Non-admin team members can only view their own purchases.


What payment methods are accepted?

Payment can be made by ACH and credit card at the time of purchase or in advance via prepayment. By prepaying, you reduce the number of charges assessed to your payment account and reduce the risk of a future charge failing (possibly delaying delivery to recipients). GiftRocket maintains a balance of your prepaid funds from which the cost of future purchases can be deducted. Prepaid funds can be wholly refunded at your request.

Are payment options shared amongst all team members?

Yes, except for credit cards that are specifically designated for personal use.

Can I have order confirmations delivered to a separate email address?

Admins can provide a designated billing email address in the Settings tab.
