First, you will need to create a spreadsheet with the following headers:

Gift Type, Amount, Name, Email, Expiration Date

Or copy and paste the following into your spreadsheet:

Gift Type Amount Name Email Expiration Date

Then, you will need to fill out the spreadsheet. 

Gift Type can either be a "One Item" or "Gift Card".

Amount can be left blank if the gift type is One Item. For Gift Cards, enter the desired dollar amount.

Enter the Name of your recipient.

Enter the recipient's Email address.

The Expiration Date is optional. The date should be in the the form 00/00/00 (month/date/year). For example, an expiration date of May 23, 2024 would be typed in as 05/23/24.

The next step is to export your file as a CSV or Comma Separated Values file. You can do this in most spreadsheet apps by going to File and selecting Export or Download. Select CSV as the file type and save the file.

Now that your CSV file has been downloaded, log in to your Print Your Cause account. Find the Gifts section of your store page.

Next, click on the "Import gifts" button and click the upload button.

After uploading your CSV file, double-check to make sure that all the information is correct. If the information is correct, click the "Create gifts" button at the button left corner of the screen.

Now, you will need to send the new gift codes to the recipients. The new gifts will appear at the top of your gifts list.

To select the new gifts, simply click the checkboxes in the far left column next to each item.

Next, click the "Send emails" button at the bottom left corner of the screen.

Alternatively, you can send the gift codes to the all visible recipients by clicking the "Send Emails to Visible Gifts" button located on the menu bar beneath the word Gifts. This will send an email to each recipient shown on the screen, even if that recipient has already received their gift code.

Next, you will be prompted to customize the email your recipient will receive. This customization is optional.

Your recipient will receive an email with a link to your store. If the recipient receives a gift code with a cash balance, their code will appear in the email.

If your recipient receives a gift code for one free item, the code may not appear in the email.
