What customers say about Opencart Gift Card Extension
I bought this extension to use on my OC 2.0. It is was clear to us that this extension is developed for newer version of OC and converted back to OC 2.0.
Anyway, 10 days /30 paid developer hours to finally get it to work. Most of the issues are not even related to theme or template but the connection to database and conditions to use the Gift Voucher.
The extension is really good. They need to improve their User manual doucmnet. Its the support which changed the experience for me. They are over the top helpful. Keep up the good work guys, esp Joe.
