What is gift voucher/ coupon code used for?

Gift coupons is the best solution for customers who don't know what book to buy as a gift of present for their friends, colleagues and loved ones. Customers just order a gift coupon with specific parameters (the name and address of the person who the coupon should be sent to, coupons worth and a cover message), and the web store administrator ends the coupon to the recipient via email or regular post. Customers are also encouraged to bundle a coupon with any number of products from the bookstore catalog. These products are marked as free products. Once a gift coupon is created,the customer adds it to the cart and orders it as a regular product. After the order containing the coupon is processed or completed, the coupon becomes active and gets sent to the recipient. The person who received the certificate can then visit S.O.D books web store, choose products from your catalog and add them to the cart. At checkout, he or she will be offered to redeem the coupon,i.e. to enter a code specified in the coupon. The coupons worth will be subtracted from   the order total. If the certificate doesn't cover the order total completely, the rest of the sum can be paid off through any available payment method. Coupons never expire and can be used to pay for orders at any time. It's also possible to use the same coupon for multiple orders if the coupons worth hasn't been expended by previous orders.The only limitation concerning gift coupon is that it is impossible to pay for an order with a gift coupon if the order contains nothing but another coupon.
