Post How to pay for gift card
So we have followed the steps outlined here on how to create a gift card. ... A-00836/0/

However, we can easily create the gift card. But, how do you have the client pay for it? We can create/add a line item in the invoice that says Gift Card so the client can pay for it. BUT, that also adds to our sales report. Then on the gift reciever end when you apply the gift card it does factor out the gift card in the sales report.

So, John bought Barbara a gift card for $500. Barbara then had a order that was $750, applied the $500 gift card, then paid the other $250 on a credit card. But when you run a sales report it shows the $500 gift card sale and the $750 order. Which gives you a total sale for that day of $1250, which is wrong because you only actually took in $750 in total sales. This is going to fluff our sales report at the end of the year and mess us up for taxes big time.

So, if we did $10,000 in gift card sales. Then all of those gift card sales were applied to orders, the sales report would show us making $10,000 more than we actually did. Paying taxes on that is not fun.

Any help? What am I doing wrong?
